LETTER FROM VALERIE

Valerie Frederickson
Founder & CEO

 
  Prognostications and Comments on 2021  
  I hope that you and yours are enjoying a warm, safe holiday. Although we’re in a pandemic, this was unexpectedly the busiest pre-holiday season I’ve seen in 25 years, both for us and for our clients. As 2020 draws to a close, we continue to live in truly unpredictable times.  
  As it is that time of year to reflect and look ahead, here are my predictions of what we’ll see in 2021:  
 
  • The year of Latin America. We’ll see companies increasingly based in Latin America, or co-located between Latin America and Miami, San Francisco or elsewhere. Businesses will increasingly build out resources in this region.
  • Greater focus on startup companies with funding, who will be coming out of their stealth mode and needing strategic human resources (HR) services.
  • Performance management will have more focus.
  • Higher attention will be paid to compensation strategies and programs to attract and retain employees.
  • Companies will revisit their business department models and elevate their business partners.
  • Further change in the executive suite: The head-spinning amount of changes we’ve seen recently will continue, as people who stayed in place during the pandemic realize that now is a very good time to move (joining those who already moved this year).
  • Dispersed-first: Businesses like ours, who have gone silent on location and become more dispersed and “work-from-anywhere” will find more clients who are also like that.
  • Technology will increasingly take over people’s jobs, allowing them to focus more on strategic activities.
 
  Next year will be a year of healing and recovery for the U.S., and the world. For the tech world, I predict it may be one of the fastest moving and most energetic years that we’ll ever experience.  
  Best,

Tipalti is the leading global payables automation solution, on a mission to elevate the finance function. This fast-growing fintech company just received a round of $150M in funding in October and is now at a valuation of more than $2B.

 
 

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve assisted Tipalti in filling the role of Head of Talent Acquisition (TA), placing Elizabeth Downer. In this role she will help Tipalti continue its growth trajectory by driving the company’s talent acquisition vision. Downer most recently served two years as an advisor to Reliable Robotics Corporation and was also VP of TA at Bill.com. Prior to that she held HR executive roles at Facebook as Recruiting Director for over three years, at Google, and at Excite@Home. Downer studied economics at Stanford University.

Congratulations Elizabeth on the new role at Tipalti!

PEOPLE/HR SEARCH – KLAVIYO
 
 
  image  

Klaviyo believes that growth-focused companies must leverage email, website and mobile channels – the channels they “own” – to help accelerate sales and build stronger relationships with customers. By facilitating thoughtful, data-driven customer communication, Klaviyo enables its customers to build relationships at scale, unencumbered by ad networks and other intermediaries.

 
 

We’re excited to have worked with Klaviyo to fill the role of Global Head of Total Rewards, placing Amanda Schwartz. In the role, she will report to Chief People Officer Jenny Dearborn as a critical member of the HR leadership team. Schwarz brings nearly 20 years of experience as an HR executive to the role, most recently serving as Director of Total Rewards, Operations & Analytics at Glassdoor. Previously she was Director of HR Global Operations at Glu Mobile, and held leadership roles at Recommind, PRN, Kane and Finkel Healthcare Communication, The Hoffman Agency and Harris Interactive. Schwartz earned an M.S. in HR Development and a B.A. in sociology from Villanova University.

Welcome Amanda to Klaviyo!

  THE COVID CORNER  
  Winter Holidays in 2020  
  In the midst of winter’s longest hours, the pandemic is unfortunately still impacting us. The arrival of vaccines, and the likelihood that many of us will have access to them in the coming months, offer hope. It’s a season to give—if you’re in a position to do so—to help those in need, and to follow safe health practices.  
  How are you observing winter holidays? At the end of a long, unusual and trying year, even with pandemic restrictions in place, I hope you're having a peaceful break spending time with loved ones -- even if it’s quietly, over Zoom.
