Iris Bowman has worked at celito since 2002. It was a young business then, and, as Operations Manager, Iris wore many hats, including heading up human resources. Now, as VP of Administration & Finance, Iris still has a hand in HR, but isn’t able to dedicate the time it deserves. Close HR Connections fills in the gaps.
“Close HR has given us some good ideas, advised on pay for new hires, provided guidance and research, helped with annual employee performance review metrics – all the things I don’t have time for,” said Iris. “The biggest thing for me was that they looked at industry standards and salaries and made sure we were paying our employees fairly.”
Close HR also assists with developing job descriptions, interview questions, and guidelines for terminations and annual reviews. “They were able to help with anything HR-related that I asked,” said Iris.
“Close HR was a referral from a fellow EO member, so we were confident that Close HR would deliver value as a trusted HR resource,” said Sharat Nagaraj, President and Founder. “celito is scaling up rapidly and the meaningful impact Close HR is providing to our culture, team, structure and organizational development is vital for meeting our strategic goals moving forward.”
Iris commends the Close HR team for how they check in, follow up, and are very responsive.
“It’s nice to have Close HR on our side,” she said.
