Firms often experience hurdles in defining strategy or, more commonly, in implementing and executing the strategy once it is defined. We help firms in both areas. Our approach is to collaborate with the firm to explore the existing strategy, identify the highest area of opportunity for impact, build an action plan for progress, and support execution through quick wins and longer-term actions.
Attracting the right candidates and making the right hiring decisions is critical to a firm’s success and also one of the most difficult business processes. With our proven HR experience, we help firms organize an effective selection strategy and build their competence and confidence to execute it successfully.
Most professional services firms today recognize that their people are key to their success and their most important asset. We work with firms to develop and implement performance enhancement initiatives that increase the value of that asset. Incorporated in that work is collaborating with the firm to ensure that the right management processes,
tools, and techniques are in place to enable them to manage the asset wisely and effectively.
Talent management areas of focus include:
(skills) and contributions (results)
Performance assessment tools
Performance and career development processes
Re-recruiting top performers
Coaching and mentoring processes and tools
High performance firms retain their talent. We work with firms to develop and implement people strategies that positively impact retention. Our approach is to focus on the firm’s employee value proposition (EVP) — those things that an employee desires and finds motivating, propelling them to higher levels of performance. We help firms “pull” EVP levers in their environment that will increase psychic income, significantly raise an employee’s exit price, and enhance retention.
