Advantage Consultores is celebrating
10 years with an event full of acknowledgements

The event took place at the InOut Barcelona,
a center where 90% of the employees are disabled.

Advantage Consultores celebrated this Thursday evening in an evening 10 years of existence, which was according to Sylvia Taudien, director and consultant “an homage to friendship and to the people who move the world”.

During the evening, Taudien went through the decade of activity from the beginning where everything started almost by chance. The director thanked her first clients, who were also here and their loyalty at that time and also the good personal relations she maintains with the majority of her former and current clients.

Amongst the guests were Josep Manel Ventosa, Development Director at Banc Sabadell; Clotilde Tesón, HR Directo at Codorniu, and Quim Bernardo, HR partner of Up Team Consulting. With this team and Equipos&Talento, Sylvia Taudien published the book “Shock!” in 2008, a practical guide to accompany companies during processes of fusion or acquisition.

Taking the wonderful opportunity, we talked to Sylvia Taudien to give us a short revision of this decade of development and to see what her plans are for the future.

This year you are celebrating the 10th anniversary of Advantage Consultores. What would you emphasize of this decade of development?

For me this is a period of great joy with a sparkle in the eyes. These are ten years of effort and dedication, passion and networking. We had a lot of wide-ranged projects, that set trends, like the supervision of the bank fusions with the pioneer project of Banc Sabadell-Atlántico, we brought the concept of Newplacement in a very individualized form with human touch and we made the important connection between Germany and Spain for bilateral projects whom a lot of German Start-Ups in Spain and Spanish companies in Germany have followed.

In times of crisis, what is the additional value the services as director in Human Resources present?

We try to get across a positive attitude and to present us as a problem solver. When it comes to technical specifications, the mentality and the international experience are inevitable and to develop intercultural understanding and logically to know various languages.

What do you think are the main tendencies in the HR consulting for the future?

I think we move towards the specialization in certain fields like Talent Development, Headhunting at a global level, Intercultural Coaching or personified services with Senior Consultants. We have to build a partnership based on efficiency, rapidity, feedback and closeness.

The 10th anniversary, what are the next objectives Advantage wants to achieve?

We carry on with our niche policy between Spain and Germany, which will be effective with our close relationships. For us these are ten years of success, happiness and we want to continue to help the people and the organizations. That is why we are planning a long-term succession for the future.

The event took place at the InOut Barcelona, an initiative of “Business with Social Value”. Located in the Parque de Collserola it is Europe’s first Hostel where 90% of the employees are disabled, most of them mentally.

  • My experience with the Advantage team can be summarized as outstanding, their professional quality is unquestionable, and combined with a genuine orientation towards people, any collaboration will become a success, because they really achieve to have an impact, to transform talent and to motivate people.

    Yolanda Menal National HR Director at Unilever Spain

  • Advantage Consultores is a great and very professional company. They work with people and for people, finding the best professionals available at all times on the market, without forgetting the fit with the team and with the philosophy of our company. This is vital for our business.

    Paco León Head of Human Resources at Bayer Hispania

  • With Advantage Consultores we have always been informed in detail about the progress of the search. In a field as intangible as headhunting they stand out through their dependability and commitment.

    Antoni Balanyà, Business Manager at New Yorker Spain.

  • I worked with Sylvia during several years. During this time I could discover probably the best Executive Search that I have worked with during my 15 years of experience. Sylvia is a high responsible, fully involved & competent professional. In addition to all of these, she really cares & listens to the people that she works with. Sylvia has my highest personal & professional recommendation.

    Ricardo Perez Font EMEA International Marketing Director at Invacare Corporation

  • The most efficient and accurate search process for one of our profiles most difficult to find. It has been closed in a record time with a perfect profile.

    Emma Giner International HR Director at Massimo Dutti

  • As a professional in the HR sector, I have dealt with many consultants, but the level of professionalism I have seen at Advantage Consultores, from my point of view as a candidate, was excellent. Not only for the received treatment and feedback at each step of the process, but also for the level of detail and knowledge of the project itself, since it is not usual for the consultant to know so much about the company. Your high professional and human level makes me recommend you without any doubt.

    Diana Arias

  • Thank you very much for accompanying me with such professionalism and empathy in these important moments of my professional life. Thank you for helping me reflect and see in a positive and realistic way the amount of opportunities that arise as a result of change. Thank you for accompanying me and for recommending me to your own networking in such an individualized way... and above all, thanks for making me see and value my own abilities to achieve the challenges and professional goals. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
