organisational CONSULTing

What stage has your business reached in its development?

Are there challenges (or, ‘problems’) halting your growth plans – or at least making you pause them?

Can you see opportunities but feel unable to take advantage of them?

Every, single, viable business goes through similar experiences. Many are prompted internally as you flex and fit your output to the needs of your customers. Some are caused by external forces – local, national, global… They all need managing which is a tall order if your business model isn’t fit for purpose and ably supported by your operating strategy.

Being able to take action – for whatever reason – on a tactical level calls for an agile business model from which both people and processes take their lead. That’s what people and organisational consulting is all about. It’s a collaborative ‘consultant and client’ relationship which ensures you always make decisions and take action that drives your organisation in the direction it needs to go.


How should your organisation be designed in order to achieve your commercial and wider societal objectives? We work with you to apply logical thinking to your strategy, and then work with you to build the understanding and confidence you need to make your strategy work in practice.


Significant change is a challenge for any organisation. It takes great vision and determination to manage it successfully for everyone involved. We support leaders to take a leading role, communicating with their people and driving better decision making.


Organisational development is about empowering all the people in your organisation – not just management. We help you to involve your people in the process of change, promoting engagement and producing positive and lasting outcomes.

hr services

Those organisations who emphasise the importance of their people are right to do so. Everything depends upon you all working together to serve your customers efficiently and effectively. That’s why HR exists; to help you manage the performance and welfare of your human resources.

HR is more than a hiring and firing function. Its skilled people, and vital systems and processes are wasted if they’re only wheeled out to solve problems and do the dirty jobs. That’s not getting the best out of HR so you probably aren’t getting the best out of your workforce. Effective HR is a strategic function as well as a tactical one.

Here’s how we get HR working within every size of organisation:

  • Strategy & Planning
  • Development & Training
  • Systems & Admin

HR manages the recruitment, development and welfare of an organisation’s people. Then, when change is needed your workforce is more likely to be receptive to your plans for the future.

HR Strategy & Planning

Your employees are your company. As OD consultants we understand how building a strong, high performing workforce is the route to any organisation’s success. Consequently, HR is at the heart of OD. HR services are pretty universal but it’s how you perform them and put them together that marks the discipline out as successful.

HR Development & Training

A development and training strategy is a key part of an overall business strategy. It maps out how an organisation develops the capabilities, skills, competencies and behaviour for its employees. It provides focus on what exactly an organisation and its people (from top to bottom) need from each other. It stands to reason, therefore, that recruitment both influences and takes its lead from this strategy.

HR Systems & Admin

The HR systems and processes you use should serve a purpose – not simply tick boxes. From providing valuable and reliable data to protecting the security of the organisation, HR systems and admin have a vital role to play in the overall management of your people. In our world there’s no room for anything less than joined up thinking with the aid of intelligent and intuitive technology.
