"Working with Sarah / Aprium Advisors was a game changer for my organization. We are a small non-profit without dedicated HR assistance and limited capacity. The essential policies and practices that non-profits like ours need in place to grow took years for us to develop on our own. Sarah helped us develop employee onboarding and handbook materials and a multi-year HR strategy in a matter of months. It's rare to find an HR professional who is so knowledgeable, technically savvy and enjoys the work they do. Sarah is all of these things and more. With the tools Sarah helped us develop, I am a more confident Executive Director and even more excited about my organization's growth. I cannot recommend Sarah and Aprium Advisors highly enough. Thank you!"
