Anyone who has worked with Amy Bakay can tell you that she’s as gentle as a magnolia but possesses the strength and fortitude of an oak tree. It’s a fine balance that anyone in human resources hopes to achieve, and Bakay does it with grace. For years, she dreamed of creating a team of talented HR practitioners who could provide tailored support to small and mid-sized companies, and with her own business HR NOLA, she’s become a trailblazer not only in her industry, but in advocating for women’s issues, employee development and compliance. In addition to growing her business, Bakay is also an Adjunct Professor for the Master of Jurisprudence in Labor & Employment Law program at Tulane Law School, the Vice President of Membership for NOLA SHRM Board of Directors, and is a Senior Certified Professional with the Society of Human Resources. Bakay’s latest honor is a nomination for the 2018 Woman of the Year by New Orleans City Business.
