SAN FRANCISCO, CA., August 31, 2022, Sparrow has been named an Honorable Mention recipient of Ragan’s Platinum HR Awards in the Technology Category.

Hard-working Human Resources professionals are behind the efforts to retain, attract, inform and support employees, but their contributions often go unrecognized. Ragan’s Platinum HR Awards celebrates the people, the programs, and the products that are dedicated to driving HR success for their organizations, employees, and clients. Ragan held a special award celebration on August 17 at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, recognizing their impressive work.

“In the last 10 years, navigating the labyrinth of federal, state, and local leave regulations has only gotten more complex,” said Deborah Hanus, Cofounder and CEO of Sparrow. “As companies across the US accommodate remote work, managing leave without compliance errors has become a major pain point for People teams.
