Our founder, Kim Silvers, SPHR, PHRca brings business experience from the private and public sectors. She has held progressively responsible positions in Human Resources management in Fortune 500 & 1000 companies including the retail, distribution, software and production industries. In addition, she holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business, an MBA in Human Resource Management, and is a certified Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR). No doubt – she’s a certified HR Nerd!
Prior to starting Silvers HR, Kim was the Director of Corporate Human Resources at USCS International, a publicly traded (NASDAQ) software and services company. Working with line management to facilitate the restructuring and growth of an international high tech company with several subsidiaries, she directed the management development, staffing, compensation and employee relations functions. This rapid growth also allowed her to lead the human resources issues in the merger and acquisition process from due diligence to integration in the U.S. and abroad.
During Kim’s tenure at USCS International the Company enjoyed a 54 percent decline in voluntary employee turnover as a result of the Attraction and Retention programs Kim managed. Much of this project included redefining compensation and recruiting strategies and practices. USCS International was listed on Forbes’ list of The 200 Best Small Companies in America and later named as Sacramento’s Most Admired Company.
Kim’s experience also includes employee relations management and policy development in union and non-union facilities. She has served as management’s representative in collective bargaining and grievance resolution.
She is currently on the Board of Directors of Capital Public Radio and is a former Board member and President of the Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce. She is a member of the Society for Human Resources Management, the Sacramento Area HR Association, World at Work, the Roseville Chamber of Commerce, the El Dorado Women’s Fund, and the Placer Community Foundation Giving Circle. She has taught in the Business Management program at St. Mary’s College Sacramento campus and UC Davis Extension. She speaks frequently on HR issues and writes for several business publications.
Kim is the 2006 NAWBO “Wise Woman” award winner for Outstanding Women Leaders in Sacramento Valley. She was also awarded the 2017 Athena Award by the Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce.

I love calling Silvers HR because I know I’m going to get a direct answer about HR issues and not a lot of legal garble. They just ‘get to it’- so I can get back to business.

During a series of management training classes for our team Kim used a mixture of new material, hands-on exercises and group interaction that got everyone participating, even the more senior experienced ‘I-don’t-need-this-training’ types. Her presentations are interesting, challenging and full of pertinent examples and wit.
