What our supporters have to say…

Jana is a standout leader in the brave new world of the agile, lean approach to People (formerly known as HR). She is an innovative, business-minded People leader who kickstarted the People function at Benevity to build out a scalable, sustainable People team and practice. Jana brings a new perspective to galvanizing people toward growth.

Anette CerafickiDirector, Talent and People Development, Benevity

On People, Jana gets it. Jana understands that the foundation of any great company is defining and investing in its culture, finding amazing colleagues (aka unicorns) to work with, and reinforcing the notion that with freedom comes responsibility (read: everyone must deliver results!). She used her experience as part of a growth company team to inform building a People function that was all about impact.

Jason BeckerCo-Founder & VP Technology Operations, Benevity

Jana knows how to build People for startups and scaleups: she knows what you need (and when) and knows how to inspire people to be the best versions of themselves by achieving early success through creativity and dogged determination and then by building success upon success.
