HR consulting firm & management recruiting agency with best in class Human Resources consultants and executive recruiters in Tampa, NYC, Miami & Orlando.
Here is a list of some of the challenges we typically hear from the CEO's, Founders and Senior Leaders we work with when they first come to us:
Challenge 1 - Hiring Talent
The talent marketplace has tightened and unemployment rates are at historic lows. They are faced with not only long times to fill their open positions – but also ensuring they select the "right" person and the cost of bad hiring decisions.
Challenge 2 - Retaining Talent
Companies are faced with providing a differentiated employee experience for their people that will keep them there in this tight marketplace– especially their top performers. They also have an added challenge of retaining their new hires & the cost of turnover.
Challenge 3 - Levels of Engagement
Many of the clients we work with are rapidly growing SMB's with passionate Founders/CEO's who have worked very hard to build their business – but are struggling with their people having the same level of commitment and urgency they have.
Challenge 4 - Little Succession Bench
We speak with people that come to us who are brilliant entrepreneurs that do not plan on staying in their business forever. However, they feel trapped because they do not have a successor who can take over for them when they leave, or can't take over soon enough.
Challenge 5 - Lack of Leadership Skills
Whether it be managers who are not equipped to handle difficult performance issues –to leaders who are "technical experts" but are lacking in self-leadership skills and getting work done through others, they ask us for help to build their leadership capabilities.
Challenge 6 - HR Compliance & Legal
Keeping up with the continually changing landscape of regulations and HR compliance is a constant struggle for emerging businesses – and takes them away from what they do best. They also are concerned about the legal risk and exposure they run by not doing it "right".

We had a wonderful experience working with Andrea and HR Soul on a number of recent initiatives. Andrea led us through our first agency Climate Survey which was really well received by staff and the Board and most recently helped us with focus groups on accountability. Her messaging suggestions were always right on point. I look forward to working with her again!
Paul did a fabulous job at bringing to life the value HR can add to the bottom line and helping our team understand how to build credibility through partnerships with Finance. Paul’s experience and examples provided credible reference points. Together- we established the groundwork for our HR Scorecard 1.0 and took steps towards changing the mindset about HR’s value.
I worked with Andrea administering a climate survey. Andrea really was the expert needed for this undertaking. She communicated very well, set us up for success and really instilled a sense of confidence throughout the project. Andrea was always prepared with materials, ideas and recommendations and she was extremely flexible with the client's needs and timeline.
Paul is an extremely skilled HR professional who added tremendous value to our organization. Paul quickly learned our business, and was able to identify and drive HR solutions that had a positive impact. He was well respected by our senior team and worked closely with us in our talent and succession planning efforts.
Andrea and I worked together to open Mexico and Australia. The highest professional compliment that I can pay Andrea is when she would leave one of the markets – GM's would automatically ask her "when are you coming back." At HQ's she had the same impact – always being available as a strategic partner to the business.
Paul can always be counted on to offer insightful, practical and results oriented HR advice. He is personable, articulate, highly ethical and has high business acumen, all making him an extremely competent and effective HR executive. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Paul again.
Andrea is a very strong International HR specialist. Andrea supported me during the setup of a green field operation in México defining the HR strategy for the Pepsico-Strauss JV. Andrea understanding of the Mexican labor market as well as her cultural savvy was critical to attract the right talent under strong people processes.
Paul is one of the very best HR professionals I have ever worked with. He has broad range--HR technical skills from high level organization development to change management to leadership and management development skills. He also has great influence with an incredible sense for innovation and resourcefulness. He is A++.
Andrea is dedicated, collaborative, enthusiastic and fun to work with. She is a solid HR professional with a breadth of experience, that makes her comfortable working on organizational capabilities, values and culture. Her energy and experience would be valuable to any organization she chooses to work with.
Paul is a creative thinker and is never satisfied with common practice or status quo. He researches the best options and pushes his knowledge base to provide the best service to his customer. He continually exceeds his contribution to any organization he serves by building effective relationships with key leaders in the business.
Andrea is equipped with high intelligence and deep understanding of "what makes people function". She is fast learner, experienced and pragmatic– a combination that helps her to understand the business and adds value in short time. Her personality along with her collaboration capabilities enable her to connect with people.
What impressed me the most about Paul is his amazing business acumen and focus. He delivers innovative OD and learning programs with careful attention to overall alignment with the needs of the business, never losing sight of the ROI. Paul would be a tremendous asset to any organization that cares about best-in-class HR services.
Andrea's personal touch was a constant reminder to never forget the "human" side of HR. Her upbeat, cheerful, knowledgeable and professional approach to business left a lasting impression on the team. I highly recommend Andrea to any organization seeking an experienced professional who will take them to the next level in HR.
Paul has great experience as both an HR generalist and as a talent/OD specialist. And, because he has both, tends to be very good as a generalist (because he gets talent and development) and as an OD specialist (because he understands HR). Paul is smart, fun, thoughtful, practical and strives to drive business results and performance.
Andrea was without doubt the most effective and knowledgeable HR professional I have ever worked with. Her advice, experience and ideas to directing "the human factor" was people focused but always with the bottom line in mind. I would without hesitation recommend her to any client looking to create or strengthen their HR vertical.
Paul is an expert in all facets of HR from his experience in start-up to his work in turning around businesses that are struggling. He shines in strategic planning, executive coaching, succession planning and change management. Combined with his extensive business acumen from a number of industries, he is an exceptionally rare talent.
Andrea is a talented, enthusiastic and proactive HR Leader. During the first stages of designing the company's HR strategy she led a cross-functional team to work harmoniously and productively. Thanks to her efforts the team managed to design a winning HR strategy for a new company and get it approved by the Board of Directors.
Paul has accomplished many exciting projects through his collaborative nature, excellent project management skills and superior OD experience. His combination of HR skills coupled with exceptional business acumen would make him a valuable to any organization. I would not hesitate to work with Paul again.
