Advisory: People & Change

Getting the best from people at every level during constant change is the key to sustainable competitive advantage. Great leaders know that change only sticks when the people it affects are involved in the process of bringing it about. This is because solid strategies, processes and technology alone do not deliver results. It takes people to accept, drive, and sustain change to bring lasting benefits to their organisation.

Attracting and keeping good people is central to stability and we help our clients to position themselves as an employer of choice by developing leading reward and retention strategies, improving HR function effectiveness and creating leadership and learning programmes for staff and management. We focus strongly on understanding the organisational culture and concerns of employees in order to create the solutions that fit and allow you to attract and retain the best people.

HR management

Organisations need to adopt a HR strategy that is aligned to business strategy and that is responsive to external considerations; also to ensure that the HR function has the capability to carry out its mandate and that it can provide effective people programs and practices. HR needs to be able to demonstrate its effectiveness back to the business, and provide a robust means of identifying the impact of its practices on business results. We can assist you:

  • Assess and improve effectiveness of the HR function, including the strategic impact of the function, the HR delivery model, and the practices, competencies and capabilities of HR staff
  • Design and implement a HR strategy capable of meeting an organisation’s goals
  • Develop organisation measurement and assessment solutions
  • Reduce and better manage HR costs.
