“Just like in acting, there are no small parts. Each of our team members across the firm plays a part in our company’s success and has made us an award-winning team for multiple years,” stated Sarah Gonnella, VP of Marketing & Sales. “Our success can be contributed to focusing on a collaborative and growth mindset culture.”  

“Full Sail Partners was recognized with this award because they frequently add-on and expand existing customers, and find more new customers than any other partner" said Mike Hines, Vice President of Partner Sales at Deltek. “Their long-time commitment to Deltek, the pipeline they continue to build year over year, and the business they continue to close for Deltek are all a testament to how critical partnerships like Full Sail Partner are for our business. We look forward to building this partnership as we go forward.”

Full Sail Partners to Provide HR Consulting Services to Professional Services Firms

Posted by Lindsay Diven on August 30, 2022

Now providing consulting services that help clients reimagine HR practices to meet present and future human capital management (HCM) needs

Full Sail Partners is pleased to announce the addition of HR consulting services to its offerings. These services will help clients reimagine their HR practices to meet the present and future human capital management (HCM) needs of the professional services industry.

Over the past few years, many architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) firms have had to examine new ways to respond to both the global pandemic and remote working while simultaneously onboarding a new generation into the workplace. As a result, these professional services firms have had to completely readjust to meet changing HR needs in response to changing ideologies. Therefore, in an effort to support its clients with HCM, Full Sail Partners has added HR consulting as a new service offering.

“In 2020, AEC firms like many other industries had to quickly readjust their HR processes to accommodate for remote workforce needs. Our firm has been working remotely for more than two decades and we believe that focusing on employees and human capital management processes should be a core objective for firms moving forward. Those that don’t make HR a priority at their firm will continue to struggle with finding and keeping great talent,” stated Sarah Gonnella, VP of Marketing and Sales. “By providing this dedicated service, we can now help firms strategize and target HR best practices. Our HR consulting team has both the experience and knowledge to benefit professional services firms of all sizes when it comes to human capital management.”

The HR Consulting team is led by Tasia Grant who has a considerable background in human resources management incorporating almost ten years of AEC industry experience, as well as eight years of independent HR consulting. To ensure value to clients, HR consulting services will include change management, conflict resolution, talent acquisition and interviewing, onboarding, mentoring and employee relations, performance and development goals, record management, Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) management as well as training/development. Offering such a large variety of HCM topics will benefit professional services firms of all sizes and focus areas.

“I am so excited to use my extensive background in human resources to help firms realize their human capital management goals,” stated Tasia Grant. “I have a deep understanding of what professional services firms desire regarding HR practices, and I am looking forward to providing them with valuable information to help elevate the industry.”
