“The opportunity when working with smaller companies and start-ups is to re-think how we work day to day. New businesses tend to have very interesting human resources questions and issues to address, because they aren’t established and they’re building ‘from the ground up’. My job is create the HR framework that reflects the company’s overall culture and approach from the get-go, which is extremely rewarding.”
