About Noble Hearts HR Consulting
Helping Businesses grow since 2014
Why Work With an M/WBE Certified Company
- Diversity & Inclusion: Partnering with an MWBE Certified company provides the kind of diversification your business wants to represent. These companies offer a wide array of experience, skills, and insights, along with the kind of perspective your company needs to reach all possible clientele.
- Incentive: Federal, state, and local government have established tax programs for organizations that partner with MWBE Certified companies. These incentive programs are designed to reduce tax liabilities for projects funded with federal and/or state loans and can include grants when the producer or supplier is a woman-owned business. Some states also offer additional tax incentives for doing business with an MWBE-certified company.
- ROI and Procurement: A study conducted by the Hackett Group showed increased profits with a 130% return on investment. MWBE Certified companies have shown an additional competitive advantage through sound procurement efforts. Thus, if you want increased revenue, consider working with an MWBE.

Our Greater Purpose

Why Partner With Us
Human Resources is often viewed as the “Face of your Company”.
Noble Hearts can help you put your best face forward.
The nuances of managing Human Resources can be complex and decisions can impact every aspect of your organization. HR Employees can make significant mistakes when thrown into the fire having to learn all on their own, with employers navigating tricky and sensitive issues without trusted and objective expert guidance. How these issues are resolved are the difference between a functioning organization to one that is thriving. Our certified Human Resources professionals are equipped with the diverse skills to support your organization at any point in the HR lifecycle because every team member brings a unique perspective to our work.
We have a specific expertise in sourcing candidates for those NICHE positions that are hard to fill. By investing in the kind of resources that ensure resumes sourced are not only from industry competitors, but also have experience in or around position specifics, we are ahead of those agencies who use a broad brush to send you sources who are partially or significantly under qualified. We deep dive into the market, use language in our descriptions that reach out to that niche candidate, and search for industry specific areas where these candidates are easily sourced.
“We want the transition from candidate to employee to be serene and seamless and aim to do this by taking the “Hierarchy” out of the hiring process.”
— Matinah Drew.
