Monika Turpen



We are very excited that Monika Turpen has joined the Clarity Consulting Team. She adds incredible depth to our HR bench and our clients love her. How would we describe Monika? Whip smart, amazing attention to detail and last but not least you will quickly learn she has a fantastic sense of humor. Monika is our go-to person for policy creation and maintenance, compensation and salary administration, employee relations, position description revisions and creation and FLSA review, leaves of absence, and performance evaluations.

Monika connects with clients in a personal way and removes the unfortunate stigma that Human Resources sometimes receives, providing a professional yet supportive and fun way to do business. Her focus is to be an advocate for the business as well as the employees who allow the business to run. She has single handedly created the Human Resources Department infrastructure for a client, auditing and bringing the office and facility to a compliant status regarding personnel files, and various health requirements for staff with no direction from the leadership of the company. Yes, she knows how to work independently and has a “get it done” attitude that clients appreciate and value.

Monika has worked with for profit and non-profit clients in every field from Assisted Living, Experience Design Firms, large Professional Associations, Office and Workstation Furniture to small entrepreneurial start-ups. Monika holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Oregon.
