Seven essential items to include in your recruitment file.


Meet Serena

Some people ask, “What does HR do?” Those that have worked with Serena ask, “What does HR not do?”


Meet Serena, founder of Executive Compass. An HR specialty firm strategically designed to help businesses stay on point in the complicated and ever-changing world we work in today. From recruitment and onboarding to employee performance, benefits, organizational development and employee relations, there’s no step in the business life cycle Serena and her team are not highly equipped to handle.


Executive Compass operates under the philosophy that collaboration, knowledge and logic in the face of chaos can solve any business challenge. No storm is too turbulent to weather. No conversation or situation is too heavy to handle. And no stress or strain is too difficult to alleviate.


If you’re looking for executive level business optimization, you’ve come to the right place. Executive Compass acts as a true extension of your company, offering efficient processes, trust and unparalleled sense of security.

Serena’s experience spans a wide breadth of industries across 18 states. From manufacturing and non-profits to technology, healthcare, and biotech, when you work with Serena and her team, there’s no time wasted on being brought up to speed, senseless paper pushing or toxic egos.


Having worked with both large corporations and startups, including the YMCA, Arc of San Diego and CRC Health Group, Serena understands the value of loyalty and a well-planned strategy, the very things that set her apart from the rest. Armed with an MBA and an ironclad dependability, pinpointing problems without making assumptions and always striving to keep the dignity and integrity of the company and its employees intact are her fortes.  


If you’re looking for executive level business optimization, you’ve come to the right place. Executive Compass acts as a true extension of your company, offering efficient processes, trust and unparalleled sense of security.

“I have had the opportunity to work with Serena for close to a decade with several different organizations. I have found that Serena has a unique talent that is missing from many of her peers in the industry. She has an attention to detail that is second to none, to ensure her clients don’t miss details that may seem insignificant but could be catastrophic if ignored.”
