The Human Aspect of Running a Business with Kira La Forgia

With a decade of experience in People Operations within the corporate world, Kira La Forgia is no stranger to the sensitive issues involved in the human side of running a business. There’s a lot to learn from hiring, onboarding, training, and managing the performance of over 500 employees for a multimillion-dollar business. She joined host Kelsey Stine to discuss the strategy behind growing your team to grow your business.

In this episode you will hear:

  • Kira’s experience with burnout that led her to start her own company, Paradigm
  • Advice for strategizing a holistic approach when hiring for your business
  • The growth you gain from hiring your first employee

“Your people are going to help get you to where you want to go, and it’s so much more fun to run a business with a functional team,” said Kira explaining the power of hiring for your overall goals to grow.

Kira founded Paradigm to bridge the gap between corporate HR policies and the modern needs of entrepreneurs. Google might have almost all the answers, but it doesn’t have what your unique business needs.
