Marc Wendorf
Human Resources Director at Facebook

I engaged with Sylvia when I was the CHRO of a consumer products company. When I came into the role, I had a series of challenging asks for staffing partners as we completed a full review of all of our staffing partnerships. Sylvia did not follow the typical staffing playbook but rather learned how our business operated on a strategic level, what our talent priorities were and then built a plan for how her team could support in a deeply integrated way. She spent time with key leaders in the business to get their perspective on what our historical staffing challenges were and proactively made recommendations on how the company operated from a talent attraction standpoint. Sylvia is a fantastic partner that I would work with again. She is a cut above her peers.

Global Head of Talent Insights and Market Strategy at Google

In my capacity as a global talent leader for a number of fortune 500 companies, I’ve had the opportunity to partner with Sylvia on several occasions in the past and witness her consistent delivery and flawless execution first-hand. What I truly believe sets Sylvia apart in this space, is her strategic mindset and organizational agility that goes well beyond just a traditional staffing partner filling requisitions. Her inherent ability to understand business concepts/models, understand the broader impact of staffing decisions across an organization and consistently deliver exceptional talent throughout numerous verticals and disciplines has been the key to her success. Sylvia is an amazing resource to partner with and I’d recommend incorporating her expertise into any talent strategy you’re seeking to deliver.

Sylvia and I worked together in various capacities at Randstad for more than eight years.

In addition to being a conscientious and highly motivated individual, she possesses outstanding business acumen and a tireless work ethic. Her sales, customer service and leadership experience, as well as, her superior communication and interpersonal skills enable her to lead her teams effectively. In short, Sylvia is a consummate professional and if given the opportunity to bring her into my organization I would do so without hesitation

Sylvia hired me and gave me my first opportunity in the recruiting industry. She helped with my career growth by empowering myself and team to maximize our potential. She taught us to really care for our clients and pushed us to go above and beyond to fulfill their needs.

I have met with dozens of staffing agencies but I chose to work with Sylvia because she took the time to understand my company’s needs and the challenges we faced. As I got to know Sylvia, I found her to be the most knowledgeable in her field. Sylvia is very reliable and solutions oriented and helped support our staffing needs during a very busy period and always responded quickly to our time sensitive needs. Sylvia is my go to person for staffing and I know with confidence that she will always come through and help provide strategic solutions. If you have staffing needs, I strongly recommend that you contact Sylvia for assistance.

Procurement & Strategic Sourcing Leader developing people & getting results | Blockchain Tourist

In my role as an outside consultant to hundreds of clients in many different administrative expense areas, I run across and interact with a large number of different individuals from my clients’ vendors. These individuals range from large company CEO’s to “on-the street” sales reps. Not many of those individuals stand out to be as memorable as Sylvia. Sylvia is a model professional, pleasant to deal with, responsive to requests and when opportunities present themselves to advise my clients on staffing needs, Sylvia always springs to mind as a potential option. I would recommend Sylvia as an asset to any organization, both as an employee or as an outside contact/service provider in the staffing world.
