Startups are never easy for HR. Quick resourcing decisions and aggressive resourcing execution timelines. Heavy dependency on individual contribution and performance, but also substantial exposure to all company team dynamics. High expectations and delivery pressure causing stressful situations to every single employee. Talk to Róża how to get this all managed.
She proved to be a world-class expert in HR startup management, being on the top of all those day-to-day startup challenges. It was a fantastic working experience with Róża, and I strongly recommend her to join your startup journey.
We have worked with Róża from HR Hints on hiring the Inovo team. The experience, market knowledge and understanding of the startup environment were noticeable, which is a great value for us as a VC fund. The whole process was led in a very transparent way, with listening to feedback, great quality of contacts and constant exchanging of opinions and points of views. I really liked the level of understanding of our culture. And always appreciate the proud goal to find the best person who will – on one hand – perfectly match the team and – on the other hand – who will add much to Inovo’s company growth.
We are ambitious and we heavily rely on our partners (in this case Róża), trusting their broad HR knowledge and expertise. We definitely got it all and more we’ve expected.
Róża 🤗 In my investor’s life, during the last several years, I have had the pleasure to meet and work with her in two of our portfolio companies. I was absolutely amazed by how many of the very complicated processes in the most sensitive area of the company (I mean people and culture of course), in the very early stage and later on during the scaling phase, became straightened and organized thanks to her fantastic professional work and devotion. I was also impressed by how the effects of her work on these aspects were spreading across the whole organization, starting from founders, and following with mid-level, c-level, and so on… Now, looking at her great activities in the field of promoting the best practices in the area of HR in startups, I can say that she is becoming my ‘guru’ in that matter!
Working with people is Róża’s passion. She is a competent professional who gives her best from the first contact with a potential candidate, through the recruitment process, onboarding and subsequent support and development of employees at all levels of the organization.
Róża has excellent communication skills, she is well-organized and oriented towards executing defined business goals. I am very grateful for all the help and numerous advice she gave me during my transition from the position of a specialist to the team manager. She was indicating the areas on which I should focus as well as helped me build and develop my team.
During our cooperation, I could always count on her and I was impressed by her dedication and commitment to the work she has been doing.
To say that Róża is full of energy, passionate about her job, has outstanding organizational skills and presents very well structured approach to her challenges, this is not enough. So what is Róża`s biggest value? What makes her better than other HR managers? In multiple organizations I`ve witnessed disconnect between HR, recruitment and deep understanding of business needs and development path for both candidates and employees. Róża has fantastic skills there – she perfectly connects HR space with business, personal development of employees and, more importantly, with understanding challenges that top management need to deal with.
No doubts – Róża makes the difference!
These days she was supporting us in communication, team building and the hiring process: finding, recruiting and choosing Product, Tech and Operations experts.
She is much more like a business partner than just a consultant. She is finding solutions based on her best people knowledge, not only observing and giving tips, but taking responsibility and feeling both the team and C-level management. I felt it in crisis situations. And I trusted her in the people area.
She is a great partner who helps you scale the team, improve the culture, and become a better leader.
Róża is a rare mix of energy and deep insight into this human side of doing business that us geeks don’t quite comprehend. She helped our startup with recruitment and mentored me on HR-related issues on multiple occasions over the past 2.5 years. Not only she saw things I didn’t, she knew how to act on them. Once in a while you meet people who make you and your company better. Róża is one of those gems.
I worked with Róża for a couple of years. She possesses business acumen and a great feeling for what is necessary to achieve the best results. I am very grateful to have an opportunity to cooperate with Róża. She has excellent communication skills, is extremely organized, can work independently, and is able to effectively multi-task to ensure that all projects are completed in a timely manner and with great results. I recommend Róża to anyone who would like to have a strong partner in business and recruitment. We went through many different situations together – some of them were challenging, some needed delivery-focus, some needed customer-focus and strong business orientation. I got it all from her.
Róża joined the Elmodis team early on as HR Manager. She greatly helped in building our team, from the recruitment process, through stabilization, to support in the development of the entire Elmodis staff.
She understands business processes and perfectly connects with the issues of HR as broadly understood (building stability, communication, development). Her extensive knowledge about people and behavior, developed during work on doctorate, finds practical applications in her everyday work.
She is not afraid of taking responsibility for the team and her decisions, which perfectly complements the activities of the management team, especially startups. She has proven herself in both good times and in crisis situations, helping us to develop and grow while managing the business landscape.
Róża is one of the best HR Experts I’ve cooperated with so far. She is an absolute rockstar 🙂 She is ambitious, reliable, motivated and focused on one’s work, which ultimately always leads her to achieve professional success.
Her diligence, professionalism, extraordinary focus on people, impressive knowledge and recruitment practices and what’s the most important great passion, guaranteed amazing results of any activities, projects she was dealing with while we were cooperating together.
When Roza takes on a project, it will be done, on time, at the highest quality level. We worked together for 3 years and I really hope that we will work together again 🙂She will be a treasure to whomever she chooses to work with.
Róża conducted a workshop for dotLinkers on the subject of telephone communication with candidates. We started the workshop with an analysis of the challenges we face. Although we always try to look at each issue from many different angles, Róża brought a new perspective which allowed us to work out mechanisms of coping with various situations during telephone calls. Róża quickly establishes relationships that get the best out of people, and training sessions like this take place in a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Her experience and expert knowledge made this workshop one of the best we have had at dotLinkers.
Elmodis provides IIoT solutions that enable predictive maintenance for the machine assets of industrial plants. Also inside the company, we needed predictive maintenance for the team 🙂. Thanks to Róża, working with people could change from reactive to predictive.
Commitment, good communication, effectiveness – I am pleased to recommend Róża as a business partner.
great listening capabilities to meet all client’s needs and expectations, great negotiations skills.
Róża is clearly an HR expert in the domain of CS and startups, with a great passion for what she does. Róża spoke at the first Let’s Phi conference June 2020. Her talk on recruitment was highly insightful and well-received.
Working directly with Róża was one of more important experiences in my career. She brings some unique qualities to the table when it comes to people management; her deep understanding of human behavior is priceless when dealing with conflicts and other kinds difficult situations. Her assistance made me a better manager and it made us a better team. I would also like to highlight her full engagement into turning a bunch of teams into a thriving workplace — from hiring, to defining HR policies, to delivering regular updates and making sure that our organization “just works”.
