Empowering Employees: How Caged Bird HR Redefines Industry Standards to Provide Independent HR Advice Outside of the Employer
In a Society Where No One Trusts HR, Caged Bird HR’s Team of Independent Consultants Bridge the Gap Between Sound, Unbiased Advice and Accessibility
New York, NY (PRUnderground) March 15th, 2022
It is commonly understood that in corporate America, the human resources department is not there to help employees thrive, but they exist to protect the needs of the employer at any expense. Conversations around the evolution of HR have revealed that not only do employees not trust HR but also that black and brown employees are having the worst experiences in the workplace. Dedicated to bridging the gap between sound HR advice and employee accessibility is Caged Bird HR, an independent HR firm designed to empower employees to be their own advocates and equip them with the tools they need to thrive.
Human Resources representatives are trained on how to apply company policies in a way that protects the company. They are not trained on how to provide HR support that is compassionate, fair, or equitable. HR and the business have become so intertwined that even when executives commit offenses at work, they are protected instead of held accountable. As a result, employees have become fearful of speaking up for themselves for fear of being negatively labeled, subjected to tropes, denied promotions, delayed promotions, smaller pay increases, or even being fired.
How can employers truly make a more inclusive and equitable workplace when its most vulnerable employees are rarely engaging with the very function that is intended to protect them? Caged Bird HR is the purpose-driven solution empowering employees to be their advocates with the unbiased sound advice they deserve. The first firm of its kind, Caged Bird HR breaks the norms of traditional industry practices to usher in a new era where employee needs are heard, understood, and validated.
High-risk situations experienced in the workplace call for high-quality solution providers to step in and ensure that every employee knows that their vulnerability is something to be protected at all costs. Caged Bird HR provides independent, confidential, empathetic, and professional advice to provide a safe space without fear of judgment or repercussions.
“It’s one thing to talk in abstract terms about the negative experiences of marginalized employees in the workplace. It’s quite another to have lived said experiences. That’s why I started Caged Bird HR. To help black, brown, LGBTQ+, differently-abled, and otherwise marginalized employees navigate these situations by sharing the insider knowledge I’ve learned in my HR career.” – Cierra Gross, Founder & CEO
Through proof of concept, dedication to innovation, and unwavering commitment to empowering employees everywhere, Caged Bird HR’s purpose-driven vision has come to fruition.
