We are ready to take it to the next level, and you can help!
Here's the deal.
Any company that employs humans needs resources to manage them (and inspire, and nurture, and grow, and retain them). But many boutique or start-up creative companies lack HR, so their team and their 'employer brand' suffers.
The thing is...
1. Many smaller companies simply can't afford an HR department
...much less a full-time executive 'Head of People and Culture.'
Often, a finance person or an office manager is doing HR administration, but they're inexperienced and doing 'double duty.'
2. Being a 'people person' isn't everyone's superpower
...and that's okay! Founders have their own unique superpowers. Or... they're in tune with their talent but they simply don't have the bandwidth to focus on employee engagement, development, and culture... because they're spread too thin.
3. "HR" is misunderstood or gets a bad rap.
People often don't realize what it encompasses, and that ALL employees can benefit from it. HR is training, HR is wellness, HR is strategic. HR enables, empowers & engages. HR coaches, advises & mentors. HR shapes & leads. HR is an advocate for ALL employees all the time (founders and interns alike!).
That's why we're ...
1. Your in-house/out-of-house HR team
Working with us, you get the value of an in-house 'HR department' for the investment of a single mid-level HR person. We handle it all, from executive-level HR counsel, to meaningful employee engagement, to HR & operations strategies to improve your systems and culture, to the most executional administrative details.
2. Coaching founders and leaders directly
...through their HR challenges, ways to improve the employee journey, and how to strengthen their employer brand.
3. Building tools, playbooks, and programs
...that make the benefits of HR more accessible, relevant, and bespoke for creative companies.
4. Training the next wave of employees, managers, and HR talent
We train with authenticity, empathy, and humor on topics that span from Workplace Harassment to Time Management to being Better, More Mindful, Managers.
Founder-led creative companies:
Advertising, design, digital, branding, strategy, innovation, production, film, tech, fashion, wellness, lifestyle brands, etc.
With under 50-100 people:
They can be start-up or well-established, but typically lack a robust HR department.
And their employees:
We focus on the employee journey, and that means ALL employees -- founders and interns alike.
Who we are:
Britta Larsen has been working for 20+ years at founder-led companies in fashion, advertising, strategy & innovation. She understands employer brands because of her creative background. And she understands employees because of her upbringing*, HR experience, and because it just so happens to be her superpower.
*YALE TO JAIL -- Growing up 1 of 10 kids (somewhere in the middle). Britta shares her story, growing up in a large family (6 adopted from all over the world), and the profound effect it had on her life, values, and career.
Katie Cowden is Britta's right hand woman and they work together with clients. Katie complements Britta's superpowers with strategy, creative writing, and program development. We're excited to grow our team this year, and funding will help that!
It's Britta HR has been improving the employee experience and building stronger employer brands since launching last summer, and now we're ready to scale. This money will help us expand our offers through our unique IP: training curriculums, turnkey tools, and branded playbooks. We also need to fund marketing so that people and companies know about us. We can't wait to help more founders and employees!
