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!
