 In the latest issue of Manage HR magazine, the publication highlights the leading developers in the HR industry who are transforming workspaces and promoting the most promising Consulting Companies. Within these trailblazing businesses, local firm HR Advantage has been selected as one of the Top 10 HR Consulting Companies for 2022.

An industry leader for more than 11 years, HR Advantage’s team of dedicated, knowledgeable professionals moves beyond the traditional cookie cutter approach to help visionary business leaders accelerate their individual, team and organizational development efforts. HR Advantage has enabled several small and mid-sized businesses to elevate operational efficiency and build the best team that contributes to larger organizational goals.

Manage HR interviewed Norma Castaneda, Founder of HR Advantage, to ask how the Latina-owned company is helping clients drive sustainable and accelerated improvement. “Clients are discovering a strategic outside perspective from a full-cycle HR team that brings incredible value to understanding and enhancing their current culture without any internal biases,” she explains. “As an all-around HR partner, our services range from executive search, payroll services, benefits, compliance, training, marketing and revenue generation. We customize all of our services to align with the client’s vision and organizational culture.”

The article inquired about today’s biggest issues plaguing clients. Castaneda responded, “Most business owners are puzzled by the overarching question — what will it take for their businesses to remail relevant? The growing trend of remote working and the resultant communication gap has increased the demand for new management approaches and improved executive capabilities. As such, management and HR leaders are struggling to align yesterday’s best practices with today’s requirements.”

“Another hurdle revolves around attracting and retaining key talents. To this end, our trainers and coaches perform cultural assessments within clients’ organizations, advise them on what needs to be changed, and architect custom programs to help clients address their prioritized needs.”
