First we work with you to measure and determine an objective organizational baseline of your current talent management practices.
From there we have a variety of customized solutions based on the unique needs of your organization.
Talent Practices Assessment
Using our Talent Cultural Index (TCI) we can work with you to benchmark the effectiveness of your talent management practices.
The results provide a clear benchmark of the strengths and gaps of the four “talent engines” that drive your culture and operating success, your succession planning processes and your high-potential identification and development.
Talent Strategy Development
Based on the assessment of your talent management practices, we can work with you to conduct a gap analysis, and develop a focused talent strategy tied to the strategic objectives of your organization.
We can also work with you to design, redesign or tweak your talent management practices based on the assessment results.
Critical Positions & Succession Bench
All positions matter, however a critical few positions have the biggest impact on the success of your organization.
We believe this is where you should focus your talent management efforts. Simply put, we believe you need your “A” players in your “A” positions.
We can work with you to quickly identify your critical positions, and gain alignment with your senior leaders on the strategic importance of these positions.
We can then work with you and your senior leaders to analyze your succession depth against these critical positions.
Development Planning For High Potentials
The identification of critical positions and your top talent is just the beginning.
The most important step is the creation, and actioning, of long-term career development plans for your top talents and critical position successors.
For these development plans to be meaningful they need to stick, with regular measured progress against these plans throughout the year, not just at year-end.
We can help you develop long-term development plans for your top talent along with a scorecard to track progress throughout the year.
Many organizations have an Individual Development Plan (IDP) as part of their performance management practices
Many times there is an inconsistency in the quality of the plans because employees do not have a holistic view of their organization, the types of career options available to them and how they can plan their longer-term career development to get there.
We can work with you to develop a customized Career Path and planning tools for your employees that outlines the different job families, and the positions within each job family to support their development planning efforts.
The HR Soul Talent Management Difference
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.
