Phase 4 Services, a laboratory management and consulting firm focused on supporting and growing hemp and cannabis testing labs, has hired experienced HR maven Kara Mittan to lead their human resources and administrative operations team.

As VP of Human Resources, Mittan will assist Phase 4’s laboratory clients with effectively scaling their teams and implementing systems designed to maintain employee satisfaction and increase productivity.

“We’ve seen first hand what challenges can arise when you go from a small, tight knit team to a large organization with multiple departments,” said Michael Kahn, Founder and CEO of MCR Labs, a cannabis testing lab operating in several Northeast cannabis markets. “Without Kara guiding the process and putting the tools in place to help us grow effectively, we likely would not have had the same success we've achieved in keeping pace with how fast this industry is expanding.”

Having served as an HR director at several organizations since 2008, Mittan has significant experience across a diverse array of industries including international companies coordinating operations on multiple continents.

Phase 4 Services is gaining critical HR knowledge and insight with Mittan’s addition to the consulting team. This will enable the firm to better guide clients in regards to building strong teams, fostering intra-organizational communication, and developing a healthy workplace culture.
