HR & OD Consulting

Our consultants have extensive experience in HR & OD consulting and in building a values-based working environment. We can help organisations develop their employment value proposition (EVP) and have experience in values and culture embedding and in designing and implementing the various organisational development interventions to align with the organisation’s underlying values and culture.

For smaller organisations and those companies who lack HR capacity, we provide an A – Z of human resource functions. For larger organisations, we assist the HR department with specific interventions whilst transferring skills, knowledge and experience, supported where necessary by formal training programmes.

We can help you to align your HR strategy with your business strategy so that they are seamless and seen to be one; to implement a performance management system which drives the right behaviours; to implement talent management and succession planning for future growth. We also have extensive experience in HR transactional activities including labour relations (disciplinary, grievance and dispute resolution).

Training & Development

We offer a comprehensive training portfolio presented by first rate facilitators. Our quality is consistently high. Our training is SETA-accredited (SETQAA2007, SABPP 61112L054PC). We offer both public and in-house training and can customise training to suit an organisation’s specific needs. Delegates can, if they wish, build a portfolio of credits towards a full NQF-level qualification as our training is aligned to unit standards and the National Qualifications Framework. We help organisations to package training so that delegates obtain a broad range of skills to help them to perform more effectively.

Coaching & Mentoring For Success

Coaching and mentoring are very adaptable, flexible and just-in-time approaches to skills development. We offer tailored executive, leadership, and personal coaching aimed at improving an individual’s current performance or providing support when people are moving to new roles that require different skills and abilities.

And, because we have a massive amount of HR experience and have worked in just about every HR role you can imagine, we offer specific mentoring to HR people where we transfer our own knowledge, skills and experience while helping HR to deliver on increasingly demanding expectations. If you are trying to significantly increase the effectiveness of people in your organisation, coaching and mentoring is something to seriously consider.
