The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) has promoted Stephanie Deiger to assistant general manager of human resources. 

Deiger will be responsible for the departments and staff that now are part of the employee development and relations division, as well as all human resources functions. She will continue to report to SEPTA Deputy Manager Richard Burnfield.

In her prior role as assistant general manager of employee development and relations, Deiger was responsible for all labor relations, training, testing, equal employment opportunity, affirmative action and employee relations functions.

She led the effort to adjust leave policies to accommodate hardships that employees endured during the COVID-19 pandemic and implemented a new parental leave policy to offer new parents the opportunity to bond with their newborn or adopted child through paid or unpaid parental leave, SEPTA officials said in a news release.
