Peter Drucker was famously quoted "culture eats strategy for breakfast".
We agree with an asterix.
When culture and strategy are fully aligned, organizations and teams play to win in their marketplace.
HR STRATEGY FACILITATION
Strategy is not complex. But it is hard. It forces people to make specific and deliberate choices about the future.
Successful HR leaders build a bold but executable people strategy that is aligned with the business needs of the organization. They also ensure their HR team has the capabilities and commitment to get there – and the measured ability to drive execution.
Using our powerful process below and expert facilitation, we can build a customized strategic planning meeting tailored to your specific needs.
grounding the present
We survey your team & key internal stakeholders to assess the current state of HR in your organization.
Our survey has been specifically designed to identify the performance of your HR function against the competencies required for success today – and for the future of work.
We discuss the results and generate insights to help shape your strategy. We also conduct exercises using our Lumina Assessments to amplify the effectiveness of your team.
defining the future
Next, we work with you and your team to define the key elements of your strategy using our powerful strategy "framework on a page" including:
- Purpose Statement (mission),
- Strategies (broad long-term objectives that describe the fulfillment of your Purpose)
- Goals (specific, quantifiable relevant goals that measure the accomplishment of a strategy during a specified period)
- Values & People Promises (the core beliefs and commitments you make to each other and your key internal stakeholders).
making it happen
Strategies and goals are meaningless unless there are specific action plans and accountabilities documented on how your team will make it happen.
We work with your team to document enablers and barriers to your strategic goals, as well as developing high level project plans with key milestones.
We also help you develop a powerful dashboard to measure the "metrics that matter" from your strategy.
Roughly 2/3 of employees are disengaged or actively disengaged at work, and that has barely budged over the past decade
Less than 20% of employees strongly agree the leadership of their organization makes them feel enthusiastic about the future
Managers have high influence on engagement and account for at least 70% of the variance in team engagement
CULTURE & ENGAGEMENT
Pizza lunches and casual Fridays are not the solution to engaging your people. Cultures are not built through cuisine or couture.
We partner with you create meaningful strategies to increase the engagement of your people.
We have a wealth of experience with people engagement strategies & how to take meaningful action to drive engagement.
We can design and deliver a comprehensive engagement survey with external benchmarks, or quick employee “pulse” surveys.
Our focus is to enable you to drive engagement with measurable business impact using our proven five step process.
We can also deliver an optional technology platform to provide you with ongoing 2-way conversational capability and dashboards with our partner in Olumo.
Olumo is a leading edge survey tool to help leaders keep a pulse on what employees are thinking and feeling with open anonymous communication.
The data Olumo gathers from team member responses are built into a beautiful interface that’s clear to understand and take action on.
