We are Bright + Early

Your modern, fractional and friendly HR team.

Does your HR feel broken, boring, or nonexistent?

You've tried downloading a few stuffy policies online. Maybe you've experimented with processes that didn't stick. You've crossed your fingers and hoped you have your bases covered. But you know it's not enough. What if you could wave a wand and a friendly team of HR pros who "get it" would appear, build all the things, and provide ongoing support to your team?

Nothing in place? Don't know where to start? You're in the right spot. Since 2017, we've helped 50+ startups and creative companies build (and scale) their HR.

You want to build a company that:

  • Attracts (and keeps) great team members

You want HR partners who:

  • Understand startups and creatives
  • Have a team of specialists to call on
  • Are a diverse team, building inclusively
  • Are real people (that you'll love working with)
  • Save you the time and expense of hiring an in-house HR team

"Bright + Early are the folks you need in your camp if you are looking for transformational HR practices. They are progressive, execution-focused and thoughtful in their approach to helping you build the modern workplace. And, they are super fun to work with on top. What else can a CEO ask for? OK, some skittles maybe."

"Bright + Early came aboard the Juno team at a key moment in our growth. We were experiencing the definition of growing pains, combined with clear indications from all sides that I needed to level up as a leader in a big way. ZJ and Nora both supported us through it, and after a few tough months, my team's culture was transformed. I changed, too."

"Hiring B&E right after our Series A was the best move we made. It allowed us to build a great HR foundation in the most important time as we were scaling the company...  I highly recommend adding B&E to your team as early as possible. You won't regret it."
