Microgen Systems Testimonial
Michael J. Perrotta, CFO/COO, Microgen Systems: "When you think about Microgen, it's important to think about perpetual power. We harvest energy from vibration and we implement that technology in a way that can replace batteries. Startups can't really afford to hire people who don't have experience, and so as a result, you've got to have the best foot forward that you can from a human relations perspective."
Jessica Hubbard-Davis, Paychex HR Consultant: "We were able to put in place some compensation, some performance appraisal processes, and then annually, sit there and worked through some of the products that he had for his employees, such as FSAs, 401(k), those types of things."
Michael Perrotta: "And I think that's the important part of it, is designing your policies so that you can onboard people who won't miss that much if they've come from a big company."
Jessica Hubbard-Davis: "Everything for them is: what is going to make the most sense for the company, but at the same time, draw the best candidates?"
Michael Perrotta: "I don't have time to handle the HR stuff, but I know somebody who does. It happens to be Jess. It happens to be Paychex."
