We help our clients to transform their culture by focusing on PEOPLE and BUSINESS.

Whether you need to create a culture to support remote working, improve performance, or align different cultures as part of a merger or acquisition, our approach is built around these two key concepts. 

For any organisation, across all sectors, your greatest asset are your people; and a successful, thriving business is your goal – and the reason you’re on this culture journey today.  

 

The human perspective

Your people will decide if a culture project is a success or failure. Why? Because human beings are the most complex part of any organisation. We are all incredibly difficult to understand! Our workplaces are multigenerational, multinational, containing diverse thinking styles, values and beliefs. This is why Culture Consultancy place a huge amount of emphasis on understanding your workforce and supporting them through the cultural journey. Your culture change will stick if it’s embedded throughout the organisation: you need your people on board to achieve this. 

what people want

Your employees want to feel their work is meaningful and has purpose. They also want success, growth, reward and recognition. However, they will all be at different stages of their journey, and have different priorities, both in life and work. Some may value time; some diversity and learning; others charitable initiatives. And increasing numbers of people are placing higher importance on autonomy and flexibility. So, how you approach your workforce, and each individual, will determine how successful your culture becomes, how quickly it is embedded and therefore how quickly you see tangible business outcomes.

the tools we use

Our vast experience and expertise mean that we bring a broad range of skills, tools and techniques to the table. Whether we’re consulting, training, coaching or running one of our cultural immersion events, these tools include:

  • Anthropological research
  • Behavioural and organisational psychology
  • Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Nudge Behaviour theory
  • Augmented and virtual reality
  • Machine learning
  • Gamified apps for learning and behaviour change

The business perspective

It’s been proven that a positive, well defined, fully embedded business culture is the vital ingredient to a company’s success. Your culture becomes a living embodiment of your brand and external marketing messaging. This produces clear bottom line benefits, enhanced customer experience and added value in your customers’ minds.

what the business wants

Although your internal culture is the area that needs attention, the business rightfully expects a clear return for going through any cultural change.

The driver might be greater financial performance, collaborative work environments, or enhanced talent attraction. It could be cost reduction and greater productivity. It might be organisation-wide change or just team/division-wide. 

Some common business challenges: 

  • Your people are not aligned to your strategy or fundamental change in the business 
  • Your people are not supporting innovation and growth 
  • You need to turn around an under-performing business or division 
  • You need greater productivity, effectiveness or efficiency without increasing your cost base
  • You need to attract and retain talent 
  • You have disconnected siloed working 
  • You’ve just completed a merger or IPO 
  • You’re undergoing a digital transformation 
  • You have a new CEO or leadership team
