360 Feedback Assessments Spidergap Partnership | Official Press Release

HR Soul Consulting –  a Tampa, Miami & New York based Human Resources and Talent Management consulting firm, and Spidergap – a global provider of best-in class assessments– have entered into a strategic partnership to provide 360 Performance Feedback Assessments for their clients. 

 

TAMPA – January 25, 2018 – According Gallup, only 1 out of 5 U.S. employees feel their performance is managed in a motivating way. HR Soul Consulting and Spidergap look to reverse that trend.

“Organizations are increasingly focused on rethinking their Human Resources ways of working, and one of the things that is core to most HR departments is the performance management process”, states Andrea Cortissoz, Partner & Co-Founder of HR Soul.

Measuring human performance can be either a positive or negative experience for employees depending on how it is managed.  Employees who strongly agree that their manager holds them accountable for their performance are 2.5 times more likely to be engaged in their job, according to Gallup research.

Paul Cortissoz, Partner and Co-Founder of HR Soul explains, “More and more millennials are not only entering the workforce, but are assuming increasingly senior level positions as they progress in their careers.  One thing that most research has shown is that they are willing to work hard and take more on accountability.  In return, they expect their manager to provide them with meaningful feedback in role, and for their future career development.”  Paul adds, “Unfortunately, most organizations are still using performance management as a carrot or stick, instead of as a tool to accelerate employee performance and build an internal talent & succession pipeline. Key to this is providing employees with well-constructed, well rounded and actionable insights.  That is where 360 feedback comes in if done right – and that is why we are pleased to be partnering with Spidergap to provide a best in class 360 assessment tool for our clients”.  

Spidergap was founded by Alexis Kingsbury and Paddy Mann – two former management consultants – in 2010. They set out to develop a tool that would result in the customers taking real action that had a real impact on their performance and engagement. Spidergap has been used by over 18,000 users to create over 20,000 projects and assess over 100,000 employees worldwide.

“One of the things I was always frustrated about as an HR/OD professional at the end of the performance year was the ability to have a quality 360 degree assessment tool at my fingertips for leaders that provided meaningful feedback, was easy to understand, was customizable to our competencies, rapidly deployable and flexible enough to be used in a variety of ways” states Andrea. ”Sure there were always 3rd party solutions out there, but as a Business Partner I was busy enough at year-end coaching leaders, running workshops, talent review/succession planning, YE merit and bonuses and so on”, she further explains.  “That’s why we searched the work of 360 degree assessments to find the best solution to offer our clients. We found it in Spidergap”.

Paul adds, “We use Spidergap reports in a variety of ways with our clients such as: standalone 360 assessments during or at the end of the performance year; development planning for leaders and top talents; or as part of our Performance Management design services”.

“But more than just being a 360 assessment tool provider, we work with our clients to generate actionable insights and development plans that increase their succession pipeline, especially for their critical positions. That really is one of the most important roles of an HR function today in any organization”, says Paul.

HR Soul is Partnering with Tampa Bay VetNet to Coach Local Veterans | Official Press Release

HR Soul Consulting –  a Tampa based Human Resources and Talent Management consulting company ­­­– has partnered with Tampa Bay VetNet – a networking group dedicated to helping veterans transition from their military careers into corporate careers – to provide job search mentoring and coaching to local veterans who have recently left the service or are about to leave the service.

 

TAMPA – August 15, 2017 – The unemployment rate for veterans who served on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces at any time since September 2001—a group referred to as Gulf War-era II veterans—edged down to 5.1 percent in 2016 according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics compared to approximately 4.3% for the overall U.S. population. 

HR Soul Consulting has partnered with VetNet to help local area Gulf War –era II veterans close the gap by providing 1-on-1 mentoring and coaching in their job search.

“We understand one of the biggest challenges veterans face when looking for work is where to start and how best to do it.  Another is explaining how their military skills translate to a civilian work environment on their resume and in a job interview.  Another is learning how to leverage social media in their job search. But the biggest of all is having someone who has been “on the inside” to be a coach and mentor as they look for work. That is what we want to do for our local area veterans in a personalized way.” explains Paul Cortissoz, Partner & Co-Founder of HR Soul.

Paul further elaborates. “We have never served in the service and to not claim to be military experts. We do however have a wealth of HR and corporate experience that we can share. We have spent a countless number of hours assessing, interviewing and selecting candidates for thousands of roles.” Paul continues, “We have been on the other side of the interview table. These insights are what we want to freely share to help vets embark on a new career outside the military.”

HR Soul Consulting has partnered with VetNet, a local a networking group that brings together transitioning veterans with those veterans who have successfully transitioned into corporate careers in the Tampa area – as well as other key members of the community interested in helping them.

“We are thrilled to partner with HR Soul to expand the support we have been providing to our veterans”, states Greg Fallon, Organizer of Tampa Bay VetNet. “Having HR professionals like Paul share their experience with veterans in a personalized way has been extremely valuable and a great compliment to the other resources we provide. Paul has not only been able to help them to focus their job search and fine tune their resume, he has also been able to leverage LinkedIn as a platform to expose them to potential recruiters through his sizable network of local HR professionals”.

“I have been beyond impressed at the level of talent and humbled to be in the company of such capable veterans and to hear their stories”, states Paul.  “The unemployment rate in Hillsborough County is below both the state and national averages right now.  Every employer is looking for talent in this competitive labor market.  There is no reason these very talented and capable veterans should not be hired in my opinion.  All they need is a little boost from the HR community and employers who are willing to look at their experience in a transferrable way. For many positions, future capability is just as, or more important, than past experience. From what I have seen in many cases these vets have both”.

We would love to have more HR professionals like Paul volunteer their time with our vets. The more people we have the more vets we can help in a personalized way”, states Greg.

Interested Gulf War-era II veterans should contact Greg Fallon from Tampa Bay VetNet through their LinkedIn page to get started.

About Tampa Bay VetNet

VetNet is all about face-to-face connections that make a difference. We are a forum to gather and connect with veterans in the local community, hear first-hand career transition success stories and expand personal and professional networks. https://www.linkedin.com/groups/6787293

Leadership & Executive Coaching Programs for Tampa Companies | Official Press Release

HR Soul Consulting –  a Tampa based Human Resources and Talent Management consulting firm, and John Mattone – an Orlando based world renowned leadership author, speaker and executive coach – entered today into a strategic partnership to provide leadership & executive coaching programs for Florida clients.

 

TAMPA – March 1, 2017 – According Gallup, only 1/3 of currently only about 1/3 of U.S. workers are engaged in their job, only 20% of U.S. workers believe their current position utilizes their strengths, and the number of workers that indicated it was a good time to look for a better job increased from 19% in 2012 to 42% in 2016.

HR Soul Consulting and John Mattone look to reverse that trend.

Organizations are becoming increasingly focused on employee engagement and talent management as part of their people business strategies.  Yet even with this increased focus, more employees are reported as being non-engaged, and are now increasingly looking for better opportunities.  We believe they are interconnected and should be looked at holistically instead of in isolation”, states Andrea Cortissoz, Partner & Co-Founder of HR Soul. “

While the labor market is tightening and top performers looking to leave for better opportunities, companies at the same time reporting a critical shortage in their leadership pipeline. In a 2015 study by the Brandon Hall Group, 84% of organizations anticipated a shortfall in the minimum number of qualified leaders over the next five years.

Paul Cortissoz, Partner and Co-Founder of HR Soul further elaborates. “There is a confluence of critical factors in the marketplace right now that require companies to focus on what we call the “Big Three” – talent, culture and leadership. Companies who wish to provide engaging cultures must provide strong leadership at all levels and development opportunities for their people, especially for their top performers. That is not the only factor in employee engagement, but it is the key differentiator between good and great workplace cultures. It’s a win/win for both companies and employees.  Paul continues, “If you want to ensure a strong leadership pipeline, focus more on a build vs buy approach. That is why we are excited to be partnering with John to provide our clients with a world-class leadership development program and coaching methodology”.

John Mattone is the world’s top authority on Intelligent Leadership and is the author of eight books including three best-sellers. John was also the former coach to Steve Jobs.  He is recognized by The Thinkers 50 and Globalgurus.org as one of the world’s top ten leadership authorities and executive coaches. Recently his Intelligent Leadership Executive Coaching Process and Certification was accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF) towards their various coaching certifications.

We are very proud to be associated with the ICF as they are recognized as they are a world leader in creating a professional coaching community to elevate the standards in which leadership and executive coaching is conducted”, states John. “I have been fortunate throughout my career to have personally coached hundreds of CEO’s and thousands of leaders, around the world using our methodology, including the late Steve Jobs. The fact that the ICF has now credentialed our coaching process with 22.5 credits provides us a tremendous opportunity to enable internal and external coaches to help leaders unlock and unleash their potential on an even wider scale”.

Andrea and Paul are now certified in the Intelligent Leadership Coaching Process and plan to offer on an exclusive basis to their Florida clients as part of their leadership and talent solutions. “As HR professionals for many years across multiple industries, we have used a lot of different leadership assessments, and seen a lot of coaching programs”, states Andrea.  “We truly believe that the Intelligent Leadership program is best-in class. The fact that John is in our backyard makes it even better. He is a hidden gem and untapped resource for Florida companies. We are thrilled to be partnering with him”.

More than a leadership program offering, HR Soul is focused on the bottom-line results and business impact they believe it will have with their clients. “Successful executives invest in results, not a program. We know this will deliver real results for leaders and high potentials.”

We are very proud to be associated with the ICF as they are recognized as they are a world leader in creating a professional coaching community to elevate the standards in which leadership and executive coaching is conducted, states John. “I have been fortunate throughout my career to have personally coached hundreds of CEO’s and thousands of leaders, around the world using our methodology, including the late Steve Jobs. The fact that the ICF has now credentialed our coaching process with 22.5 credits provides us a tremendous opportunity to enable internal and external coaches to help leaders unlock and unleash their potential on an even wider scale”.

Andrea and Paul are now certified in the Intelligent Leadership Coaching Process and plan to offer on an exclusive basis to their Florida clients as part of their leadership and talent solutions. “As HR professionals for many years across multiple industries, we have used a lot of different leadership assessments, and seen a lot of coaching programs”, states Andrea.  “We truly believe that the Intelligent Leadership program is best-in class. The fact that John is in our backyard makes it even better. He is a hidden gem and untapped resource for Florida companies. We are thrilled to be partnering with him”.

More than a leadership program offering, HR Soul is focused on the bottom-line results and business impact they believe it will have with their clients. Successful executives invest in results, not a program. We know this will deliver real results for leaders and high potentials.”

HR Consulting Firm Aims to Bring Innovative HR Solutions and “Soul” to Clients in Tampa, FL | Official Press Release

According to Gallup, currently only about 1/3 of U.S. workers are engaged — and that figure has barely budged in more than a decade.  An HR consulting firm in Tampa – HR Soul – looks to reverse that trend though their team of expert HR Consultants.

 

TAMPA- Oct 31, 2016 — HR Soul Consulting has officially moved its business from New York to Tampa FL with the launch of their new website –today. HR Soul aims to be a different kind of HR Consulting firm; one that helps organizations truly engage their people to accelerate their business performance. For the mutual benefit of people, and the bottom line.

More organizations are becoming increasingly focused on employee engagement and talent management as part of their business strategies. Yet even with this increased focus, more employees are reported as being non-engaged, or even actively disengaged, than engaged at work.

Paul and Andrea Cortissoz are a husband and wife team who both worked in a variety of senior Human Resources roles before recently moving to Tampa, FL to further expand their HR and talent management consulting business.

“Don’t let our name fool you” states Andrea Cortissoz, Partner and Co-Founder. “We named our company HR Soul not just because we are quote “people people”. We are deeply committed to seeing our client’s employees be fully engaged, achieve personal success and be provided with opportunities for career growth. At the same time, we are equally committed to helping clients drive their bottom line business results in a real and tangible way. There is room for both- when done right.”

Part of HR Soul’s purpose is to also elevate the role of the HR function in organizations. According to a 2016 Mercer Global Talent Trends Report, only 4% of HR professionals stated that HR is viewed as a strategic business partner in their organizations.

Paul Cortissoz, Partner and Co-Founder explains what he believes is the reason why. “During our careers, we have worked with some great business leaders and HR professionals, and we consider ourselves very fortunate. We believe there is a much higher ceiling for what strategic HR can deliver- and there is a huge opportunity cost for not doing so. The reason why in short, is because HR professionals in the broadest sense, have struggled on the continuums between being a business partner and employee champion, between managing risk and thinking outside the box, and between HR administration and business strategy. All are important, but need to be balanced. We have experienced these challenges as well during our careers. We are not here to judge. We are here to help.”

HR Soul plans to address these challenges with a simple formula. HR Consulting Firm in Tampa

“It sounds simple, but we always begin with the business impact in mind– in a measurable way– with a direct line of sight to your overall strategy” states Paul. “Every company has sales, customer service, operational and financial strategic objectives. As HR professionals, we need to put ourselves out there, and take the risk of tying engagement strategies and talent management solutions directly to those strategies in a real way. That is what your sales or marketing team does every day. Why play it safe? It’s not about managing programs; it’s about taking calculated risks. For example, if you have a leadership development program, how will it increase sales and by how much? I think we all agree there is great value in a leadership development program- however are you able to link it in a measurable way to sales results? If not, then why are we doing it? If so, then let’s ensure we all understand the results we are trying to achieve and get behind it- starting from the top levels of management. We have done that in our careers, and that is what we plan to do with our clients.”

Paul and Andrea also have a larger, more altruistic goal in mind.

“We have experienced first-hand how organizations can become “soul-sucking” in terms of their people practices. It doesn’t have to be that way”, states Andrea. “We firmly believe, that fully engaged employees have a positive ripple effect on business success, and society in general. The world needs that today. We choose the latter.”
