Today the HR function has evolved from a ‘transactional’ personnel support service into the ‘People function’ providing expertise in all people-related areas. HR must be a critical partner to the business, capable of understanding and translating the business requirements and objectives into an effective HR strategy and implementation

Performance management is the activity and set of processes which creates alignment between the organisations strategy/business goals with the individual’s personal objectives. It is strategic as well as operational and we have extensive experience at both ends of the spectrum. We can create an overall performance strategy right through to practical steps that can be used to improve the day to day processes. We also believe that organisations identified values and behaviours used through selection should run through the entire end to end career cycle and be incorporated into performance management.

DIVERSITY, INCLUSIVENESS AND CULTURAL CHANGE
In today’s global world it is vital that organisations understand and embrace the multi-faceted needs and ways of working of a diverse workforce. It’s too easy for the traits of the dominant tribe in the workplace to be seen as the ‘way to be’. We believe it’s not about the visible face of D&I (nobody really wants to be part of a quota), it’s about understanding and embracing diverse mindsets. Whether that is cultural, generational, orientation or gender.
Through our own experience personally and through global work experience we can assist with providing an expert D&I focusing on all people projects and practices in our portfolio of products
HR isn’t all about change and projects. A vital part is maintaining the day-to-day operations and processes required to keep the people side of the business running. We have all had operational HR experience and some of our network specialise in interim assignments when you need someone to step in and get quickly up to speed to assist with providing the HR operational support needed.
