Our People and Business Consultancy

Most organisations face four major people challenges: how to recruit the right people, how to develop their skills and behaviours, how to engage them to give their best and then how to retain them.

Working with your business leaders we can provide consultancy, advisory and coaching support to help you to implement best practices in areas such as:

  • Recruitment and Workforce Planning to have the right number of people, with the right skills, in the right roles, at the right time. Determining the appropriate permanent vs contract staffing ratios. Developing competency frameworks and job descriptions. Employing effective attraction and selection processes. Reviewing opportunities for re-skilling, upskilling and job rotation. Developing effective onboarding practices. Implementing talent management, succession and resilience planning.
  • Building High Performance Teams. Facilitating the formation of new teams, as new members are added or problems emerge. Creating team alignment. Establishing collaboration between JV partners, your suppliers and between internal departments. Managing Multi-Cultural Teams and implementing a Diversity and Inclusion strategy. Implementing effective communication plans, feedback processes and performance management. You can learn more on our Building High Performance Teams page.
  • Training and Developing Your People. Putting learning and development plans in place to develop new skills and behaviours in your team. Training design, delivery & evaluation.

Managers need to be equipped with the skills and behaviours to build, engage and retain their teams

HR Compliance and Best Practice

Implementing HR best practices, ensuring compliance in accordance with complex employment regulations and dealing with people issues. Owners of small-to-medium sized enterprises in the construction sector are often most at risk as they rely on multitasking managers to handle employee issues and lack dedicated HR resources or expertise. International construction companies starting up operations, undertaking short-term contracts or working through Joint Ventures in the UK can also benefit from our HR support. 

See our HR Compliance and Best Practice page which details our HR Support Packages.  

Not every business requires a full time human resources department or manager, but every business requires legal compliance and sound HR advice
