From our staff:

One of the reasons I joined Nonprofit HR was due to the authenticity of the leaders of the organization. They are always motivating staff to be empowered and take challenges head on. They also create a culture of innovation, encouraging new ideas and approaches for our business to thrive.

Yvonne RiveraManager, Talent Acquisition

Having leadership that is genuinely invested in my career growth is so important to me because they give me the solid support I need to move forward with any desired professional development opportunities. Doing that on a consistent basis has further secured my loyalty and has made me want to do everything I possibly could to ensure Nonprofit HR’s success just as much as my own.

Nena Coleman GrayTalent Acquisition Consultant

Shortly after I joined the firm, I was honored not only for the talents I brought to the team, but also simply for being who I am as an individual. Rarely do people hear a more gratifying expression in the workplace, which confirmed that I had come to right place!
