Invest in people from the start. Like, all-in. Just as much as you invest in product-market fit or go-to-market strategy.
I help startup founders take high-level Talent & People strategy and put it into action. I help by partnering closely to actually build and implement these processes and train your team on how to use them.
I've had the opportunity to shape Hiring, Onboarding, People & Culture in-house at Buffer, Hipcamp, and Tuff companies known for leading the way with startup culture development.
My work is rooted in building inclusion and belonging into clear behaviors, structures, and systems.
Early-stage People Ops needs to be able to handle difficult issues that come with any quickly growing company.
I work with teams in two ways: serving as an advisor to a team member starting the People Ops function or as a fractional Head of People.
A great talent strategy is about more than evaluation and interview questions.
I work with teams to build and expand on a talent strategy that is thoughtful and custom to your company (no more copying Google!).
I have worked in People Ops on two fully remote teams and two distributed teams.
I know what works well - and what doesn't - when it comes to setting clear direction and building a strong remote culture.
You want to look back at your startup's early team and reflect on the growth you shared. Not the revenue and years lost. Getting your startup culture and People Operations right from the start is just as important as your MRR goals.
