The right people are your most important asset, often your largest cost and sometimes not your highest priority. We passionately believe that great companies are great because of how they treat and develop their people.

We help organisations be successful by building cultures where employee experience and high performance are always at the forefront of executive decision-making.

  • Purpose and Culture Programme Design – building a common sense of direction
  • Talent Strategy Development – utilising the right individuals in the right ways
  • Employee Experience – building strong connection between your people and your business
  • Inclusion and Diversity – allowing everyone to grow and thrive
  • HR Function Design – modernising HR to lead the Future of Work agenda

Organisation Design Consulting

Your organisational structure should be the right shape and size to facilitate the delivery of your strategic goals in a way that reflects your purpose, ambition and cost objectives.

Modern organisations focus much more on flexibility, collaboration, culture and behaviours than on hierarchy and reporting lines.

We design organisations that work effectively and we help you manage the complex process of people transitions and redundancy programmes (where applicable) – moving the right people, with the right behaviours into the right roles.


  • Target Operating Model Design – right skills from the right sources interacting optimally
  • Organisation Design – structure, roles, relationships, decision-making
  • Building Organisational Agility – nimble, flexible ways of working for fast results
  • Managing People Moves and Redundancy – reducing risk in the implementation of complex organisational change

Transformation Consulting

We work on one simple premise. Successful business transformation is wholly dependent on the support and behaviours of the people in your business.

Whatever type of programme you are running – digital, technology, culture, integration, organisation restructure – the dependency is the same. Transformation success requires people change and people change is usually difficult.

We help organisations manage these people dimensions of transformation by designing, structuring and managing transformation projects in a way that puts human considerations right at the centre of your thinking – all day, every day.


  • Transformation Vision, Communications and Leadership – facilitation to set the right direction
  • Transformation Programme Design – setting up for delivery success
  • Transformation Programme Management – leading or supporting delivery
  • Managing the Change Experience – accelerating benefits realisation
