"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."

"Mejuri has partnered with B&E for many years. At first as our primary HR support and now as an extension of our HR team for key projects like D, E, & I Training and Career Path building. The partnership is truly impactful as they dig in to form relationships, understand our business and make recommendations that are innovative while balancing the interest of the employees and the business. We have worked with many of their team members and the experience is consistent across the board. Genuine, dedicated, and passionate. Our partnership will be long-lasting!"

Kate Railton, VP People Operations, Mejuri
