Human Resources: Human Resources Generalist
Our HR team discovers, grows and energizes the passionate people MSE needs to win. We have a vision of empowered people that put service at the heart of everything we do, both on and off the ice, and our People Partner plays a key role in bringing that vision to life. This on-site position will serve all areas of our business and will be expected to support our Iowa Wild AHL affiliate.



As our People Partner, YOU:
  • Partner Proactively. You will work collaboratively with leaders in Minnesota and Iowa ensuring that every single employee is seen, heard and taken care of. You look ahead and help our leaders understand what’s coming, from staffing plans to schedules to engaging on the job, you’re with them every step along the way.
  • Understand the devil is in the details. You pay attention to the details. From following up on a workers compensation claim to researching a PTO question to helping translate a Union Agreement into layman’s terms, you don’t miss a beat. You follow through and follow-up, you ensure every “t” is crossed and every “i” is dotted, because delivering an amazing experience for the employees and leaders, brings you joy.
  • Solve problems as you see them. Our HR team is focused on getting better every day and you’re at the center of all we do, so we expect that you don’t wait for permission, you seek out problems or inefficiencies in our HR processes, and solve them before we even know they’re there.
  • Are a cultural centerpiece. Your interaction with our employees is constant. You handle sensitive conversations and interactions by owning our Employee and Labor Relations approach for St. Paul Arena Company. People see you as a trusted advisor, a helpful resource and a critical part of our team and the Wild’s culture.

YOU ARE A:
  • Bilingual. This skill is preferred, because it will make us better by bringing the ability to speak another language to our team! 
  • Trusted Advisor. Our team runs on relationships. Confidentiality, professionalism and discretion are at the heart of building strong bonds across all our partnerships. But, that’s not enough. We act not only as a confidant, but as an advisor, shining light on things we see, helping navigate murky waters, and providing candid (caring deeply, communicating directly) feedback to help every employee become the best version of themselves. #realtalk
  • Strategic Thinker. Our days can easily get bogged down in the details, but we do more than get $hit done. We are visionaries, painting a picture of the future, seeing problems before they become clear and creating innovative, but realistic, plans to close those gaps. With one eye on today, the rest of our focus is always on what’s possible for tomorrow and beyond.
  • Focused Executor. We believe big ideas reap even bigger rewards when managed effectively. Everything we do touches people, so flawless execution is non-negotiable. Our work can be fast-paced and it can be easy to lose sight of the details, but that’s where the magic is at. With ruthless prioritization, we focus on getting things done quickly and flawlessly. Of course, we’re not perfect, so when mistakes are made, we step up, take responsibility and issue meaningful apologies when we’re wrong.
  • Servant Leader. At the Wild, everything we do is grounded in serving. We serve our organization, each other, our fans and our community. Leadership is not a rank, it’s not about being in charge; it’s about taking care of those in our charge. We inspire those around us to dream more, learn more, do more and become more.

THE MINNESOTA WILD WILL:
  • Listen to you. We need your thoughts, ideas and passion to help make this the best team in sports. You talk, we’ll listen.
  • Treat you like an adult. We will trust you to get the work done in a way that makes sense for you. We measure output, not desk time.
  • Challenge you. We promise you'll be surrounded by people equally committed to the Minnesota Wild. You won’t find more passionate people all focused on creating a Greater State of Hockey. Go Wild!
  • Commit to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. We drive social change and foster inclusivity by providing a safe, positive and welcoming environment for you, all community members and employees regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, background or experience.
