RECRUITING – Fine tune and fortify your external-facing brand to attract the talent that’s right for your organization and create a seamless and successful candidate experience.
ONBOARDING – Reduce the risk of losing new hires during the first 90 days of employment and substantially reduce costs to replace and train their replacements.
PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT – Design feedback, performance, and professional development goals around personal employee fulfillment in a way that also meets business needs.
METRICS & MEASUREMENT – Apply cross-functional data-sharing programs that will help you align your people analytics with your EX strategy.
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT – Nurture high-potential talent (HIPOs) for a stronger leadership pipeline while increasing employee engagement and business continuity.
WELLNESS & BENEFITS – Use behavioral economics to design and build high-value wellness and incentives programs and help employees better manage work/life balance and everyday stress.
CULTURE – Map your culture and how it aligns to your organization’s core mission and values to identify the cultural deficits that may be causing disengagement and turnover.
