What does your typical day look like?

No two days are ever the same - that’s why I came to Elevate. There is so much that goes into the administration of things like HR Technology, benefits, compliance, and payroll. Each day quite honestly is pushing the boundaries of my creativity and knowledge. Part of my joy in working at a start-up is no task is too small for me and my team.
