To run a successful organization, you need the right people on board. This means having a thorough talent acquisition and development plan that ist well-integrated with your overall business strategy. Before you start posting job ads, you need to have a clear idea of where you’re heading and what kind of people you’ll need to get there.

That’s where Talent planning comes in—helping you align your strategy and the people you bring on board to work together like a well-oiled machine.

At The Norfus Firm, we collaborate with you to understand your goals and find the talent that fits your vision and sets the stage for growth. As we develop and nurture your talent, we propel you toward your future goals.

Why Talent Planning is Key to Unlocking Your Company’s Potential

Successful companies understand the importance of talent planning in today’s competitive business landscape.

Who we work with

We consider ourselves industry agnostic – that means that we have the great pleasure of working with clients that represent a myriad of services, products, and perspectives. More than what our client organizations do, we love working with clients who are:

Ready to be accountable for DEI and other people-centered initiatives, from the C-suite throughout all other levels of the organization

Open to engaging in uncomfortable conversations and facing hard truths that might be uncovered during our engagement.

Willing to properly resource DEI and other people-centered functions so the work does not fall on one or two people to execute.

Our Guiding Principles

We have had the honor of working with employees in over 20 countries and our work has led us to the following guiding principles:

We Facilitate
Human Connection

The desire for genuine human connections is something that binds us all – regardless of background.

We Foster
Trusted Spaces

Employees need trusted spaces to raise workplace concerns and reimagined ideas about how work is done.

We Encourage

Organizations must take bold actions to move from good intent to tangible change.

We Believe
Intentionality Drives Progress

For sustained and meaningful progress to occur, HR & DEI goals have to be set, widely and regularly communicated, tracked, and measured.

We are committed to partnering with clients to break down institutional inequities, increase representation across all levels of an organization and create spaces where people feel that they belong.  Are you ready to elevate your people strategies?


“What’s the DEIL?” is a podcast for organizational leaders – and those who support them – as they make their way along their DEI journey.  In this podcast, Natalie Norfus and Shanté Gordon explore how leaders can create space for authentic human connection through the lens of DEI. We know you’re busy, so we focus on practical strategies and best practices that improve employee engagement, retention, and impact.
