what others are saying
Jabu is the strategic business partner and CPO you wish you hired yesterday. Jabu quickly and clearly identifies business gaps and connects those needs to structures, processes, and talent strategy. Jabu strikes the right balance between employee experience and company advocacy. In addition, Jabu brings a steadfast commitment to workplace diversity and equity and leads with an ethics agenda. She is a gem of a human to work with and a wonderful partner to any business.
Jabu came in at a time of rapid growth for us. Her expertise and ability to move fast was indispensable as she quickly setup core HR systems and processes for us to scale. From renegotiating our benefits packages (and finding way better ones!) to mentoring and coaching our managers and leaders, Jabu was absolutely amazing to work with and took care of our people. She knows how to get to the heart of any issue and get things done, all while being fun to work with! If you care about your people and building an inclusive workplace, you can’t do better than to work with Jabu.
Jabu understands people, and human dynamics, like few others - from a distance, up close, and everywhere in between. She is both practical and visionary and helped me and my organization to define a clear path from good to great.
Jabu jumped right into our wildly unique organization, built strong relationships and made a huge difference in a short time. She was able to really see people, and meet them where they were, but was unafraid of speaking her mind and pushing forward on both personal and organizational goals.
We brought Jabu on because we needed serious help with HR as we scaled our business. She saved us from a huge headache by helping us switch to an awesome benefits provider, and quickly gained trust among the employees in the company.
Jabu joined the company very early on and single-handedly built much of the HR foundation that exists today. During my time working with her, I relied heavily on her insight, intelligence, experience, humor, and sensibility to navigate the burgeoning landscape of a rapid growth startup.
Jabu has helped us everything from executive coaching and development to helping out with individuals needing specific HR support.
Jabu reads people like few others which enables her to get teams to think big and get into an empowering mindset. She is sharp,fun to work with, and I recommend anyone in a growth phase to call Jabu immediately, she will take you to the next level and beyond.
Jabu has taught me the meaning of "operational excellence" and operational excellence is a challenge for most fast-growing startups - one that we as CEOs often put on the back-burner.
Jabu is amazing to work with. She's extremely hard working, creative, calm and collected and means business!
Jabu found new ways to save the company money, increase efficiency and offer us better benefits plans. She's creative, scrappy, and fun to be around. We'd be lost without her!
Jabu is exceptional as an HR Director. She's been a great mentor and helped me grow professionally and personally. She has the excellent ability to bring out the best in our team with her witty personality and personable exterior.
