Today, all of Carta's private, corporate customers have access to a new permission level in Carta: the HR administrator.
Carta's product and business are built around the cap table, so historically, it made sense to offer user permissions that reflected the importance of seeing and managing cap table details.
But as our customers scale and the job functions within their businesses become more specialized, finer access control becomes increasingly important. Specifically, our customers with HR teams were asked to make a tough decision: should I give my HR team the ability to do their job efficiently but expose sensitive cap table information to them, or should I completely prevent them from accessing Carta at all?
The new HR Administrator permission level looks to eliminate that decision by allowing HR team members to access Carta without seeing cap table information. Users assigned the permission can:
- View employee equity information
- Download employee equity reports
- Terminate and otherwise manage stakeholders with the Employee, Ex-employee, and Consultant relationship types
- Draft (but not issue) equity awards
