Many clients choose to engage us as their "fractional CHRO" using our proven methodology to transform their HR function from the tactical to the strategic.
Some choose to engage us to help with the stand alone solutions listed below – or in parallel with our other talent, leadership & culture solutions.
Either way, one thing is for certain.
We amplify the performance of your people and the soul of your company culture.
We follow a proven five phase methodology to transform your HR practices from the tactical to the strategic.
We first spend time with you to understand your business and conduct a current state assessment. We also audit your current HR practices and systems. From here we generate insights and determine immediate pain points that need to be addressed immediately e.g. recruitment, compensation & benefits practices, turnover etc. We develop a list of key metrics to benchmark and determine the baseline measurement of your current state. Finally we share our findings and align on priorities.
Based on the outcome of our Phase 1 assessment, we quickly implement quick wins to address your immediate pain points. Items we typically address in this stage for our clients are the following: ensuring HR compliance; revising your Employee Handbook; optimizing your recruiting & selection processes; developing position descriptions; conducting ad-hoc compensation benchmarking; recruiting for key positions; automating basic HR processes and more.
What is important is that the items we address in this stage will be completely based upon your needs from Phase 1.
Once we have addressed the immediate pain points, we work with your senior leadership team to conduct strategic business planning meetings to outline your purpose, values, long term strategies and/or goals for your business using our "Playing To Win" strategic planning framework. Typically we also conduct and employee engagement survey at this stage. From there, we develop the long-term HR Roadmap that will support the strategic direction and long term growth plan of your business.
Focus in this phase is to implement the HR Roadmap deliverables and typically include items such as: Payroll & Human Capital Management system selection; Employer Branding Campaign; Onboarding Programs; Performance Management process; Total Rewards Bonus and/or Profit Sharing Program; Recognition Program; Leadership Development Programs; Technical Training Programs; Organizational Structure, Talent Management and Succession Planning and more.
What is important is that the items we address in this stage will be completely based upon your needs from the HR Roadmap.
Once these core HR practices are in place, we have built the foundation and have gotten leverage on your HR and people related practices, we work with you to continue to amplify your culture and values through your other HR & people practices e.g. team effectiveness, collaboration, innovation, increasing employee productivity, further technology investments and automation, leadership coaching, career pathways development, diversity and more.
This where we establish your company as an Employer of Choice in your industry.
We can work with you to design or redesign, your performance management process to ensure your people are fully engaged and aligned to the strategic goals of your organization.
Whether you are looking to move away from a traditional annual review to a culture of real-time coaching & feedback – or you are just looking to make some incremental improvements – we have you covered.

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.
