People-Centric Strategies

Statistics show that companies that foster employee happiness outperform competitors by 20%. Employee satisfaction stems from being valued and understood. Top performing organizations create a unique employee experience through compelling, creative and relevant solutions. The people strategy is an extension of the business agenda where employee priorities are included in core business practices and leaders make it a priority to focus on their people.

In fact, your culture is driven by the behaviors, actions, and processes that exist in your organization. Many of the talent practices, policies and processes drive the culture. We help you design new talent strategies to recruit, onboard, develop and retain employees, and to reinforce the intentional culture and values you want to see come to life.

This approach is all about putting people at the center of your organization, because when you ensure the happiness of your employees, you in turn ensure the happiness of your clients, as well as your investors. It’s no secret that when you invest in your employees, they will invest in you.

Case Study

  • Issue

    A professional services firm had shifted its business strategy to pursue large-scale government contracts and needed to rethink its talent acquisition and onboarding process.

  • Solution

    We created a recruiting strategy that included gathering market intelligence, proactively developing and cultivating a talent pipeline through incumbent outreach and active engagement of the recruiting team in the proposal process.

    Our team developed a structured interviewing methodology for identifying candidates for critical roles to ensure success of the project staffing, which was leveraged for multiple contract pursuits.

    We developed a change management and communications plan that considered programmatic systems and behavioral change needed to deliver on the business strategy.

    Implementing the plan, we created an efficient on-boarding process to engage new employees prior to start date and enable faster contribution.

  • Results

    • The HR/Recruiting organization is now viewed as a strategic partner integral to successful proposal efforts.
    • All new ventures were successfully staffed on day one, resulting in zero revenue loss.
    • Teams actively engaged with new hires from the very start of contracts, resulting in positive client impact.
    • Business leaders who were once hesitant to have the HR team engage in the pursuit process gave accolades on the new approach.
