About Ignite HR
Ignite HR Solutions was founded by Kira Feick on the belief that HR can be so much more to your small company than “just overhead.” HR can truly be part of the solution.
Kira began her career in HR at Gap, Inc., where she completed their prestigious Management Development Program. Exposed to many facets of business during the program, she gravitated toward the people of the business and the “people challenges” faced by managers on a daily basis, both in stores and at headquarters. Kira moved from the Gap headquarters offices over to the high-tech world, and from there began running a series of HR “departments of one” over several startup companies. Along the way, Kira earned her certification in Human Resources Management from the University of California at Berkeley Extension, as well as earning her PHR (Professional in Human Resources) designation from the HR Certification Institute and her SHRM-CP from the Society for Human Resource Management, and most recently her SPHR (Senior Professional in Human Resources) in August of 2018.
As a member of the Society for Human Resource Management, (SHRM), the Northern California Human Resources Association (NCHRA), and the Association of Workplace Investigators (AWI), Kira stays on top of the ever-changing rules and regulations that govern HR, as well as the current trends in employment, and as an active member of both the San Ramon and Danville Area Chambers of Commerce, she stays on top of local employment issues and trends as well.
From leading HR departments as an employee to consulting for the last several years, Kira has extensive experience in the basics such as compliance (across multiple states), payroll, and benefits, as well as the more difficult employee relations issues including harassment claims, layoffs and RIFs, and employment litigation. With experience in multiple industries (retail, renewable energy, restaurants, high-tech, and non-profits are just a few) Kira can provide flexible guidance that makes sense for your company.
