img Major strategic decisions
Preparation is essential before undertaking any major strategic decision. Research identifies different options, pitfalls and what 'good' looks like before you embark on a course of action. We have recently worked with the HR department of a leading retail bank to research HR outsourcing and shared service provision, providing vital information so that they can make an informed choice.

img Skills Audits / Training Needs Analysis
Gaining a true picture of actual skill levels and future skill requirements is critical to support organisations undergoing major change and development. Our evidence-based approach which draws upon our in-house research methodology and uses qualitative research techniques provides an accurate representation of both hard and soft skills, knowledge and behaviours. This directly informs the creation of a organisational strategic action plan which in turn drives more tactical team and individual development solutions which can be immediately implemented.

img Reward strategies
Ensuring you have the right talent in your organisation is crucial to future competitiveness. We work with organisations to benchmark reward strategies for senior roles so that they are given due consideration by top talent.

img Recruitment strategies
It is often when an organisation is failing to retain or attract the right talent that recruitment is put under the spotlight. We help resourcing departments revamp their processes, provide benchmarking with other organisations and highlight best practice in this area.

img Improving resources and toolkits
Using what you know best is an easy trap to fall into, especially when it comes to training and development. We have worked with HR and Training departments to revitalise their training by creating new resources.

img Evaluation of a product or service
First hand feedback is an important aspect of evaluating a product or service. We gather first hand research via a combination of online surveys, action research, focus groups and interviews. We apply our full research methodology, analysing and validating the data to provide clear feedback and recommended future actions.

img Assessing HR competitiveness
Processes, technology and legal requirements in the HR arena is moving fast and it is hard for HR departments who are responsible for delivering to have a clear view of their own effectiveness. We have helped clients who want to create and revitalise existing HR policies to take account of legal and market factors.

img
img Redesign organisations
Knowing what others have done can help HR or OD departments understand what is possible when redesigning their own organisation. We find those who have undertaken similar work to help identify the different options and learn from the theory and practice of others.

img Designing management development programmes
We write, design and identify content for a wide variety of different learning interventions and pre and post learning resources to suit a variety of learning styles.

img Knowledge Management
In today's service economy knowledge is power. It is imperative for organisations to have a culture of knowledge sharing and a way of capturing, storing and utilising knowledge in their organisations.

img Getting behind the numbers
Understanding the market, competitors and opportunities when acquiring a company is a key part in preparing the business case. Our expertise is in understanding the people issues - the culture of a company, internal talent and how a company compares with others. in its salary competitiveness. We can assist in putting together a business case regarding future strategies of retention, recruitment and specific areas such as union activity.

img
img Supporting consultants
We draw on our experience of working with leading HR consultancies and practitioners to provide support to external and internal consultants. We recognise that their time is best spent working directly with the client or on the business, and we act as a support function providing research to influence thinking and stimulate ideas. This might be compiling the latest thinking on Talent Management that we synthesise into an easy to use format, or it could be researching specific models on leadership for a client project.
