What is cultural transformation and why is it important?
Cultural transformation is important because research proves culture has the power to transform employee performance and productivity, boost commercial outcomes and improve competitive advantage. Culture is one of the biggest deciding factors in whether consumers choose to buy from you, whether employees want to work for you and whether stakeholders opt to invest in you.
88% of employees believe strong company culture is key to business success
Despite the importance of organisational culture, research suggests one-third of UK workers leave their jobs due to poor company culture.
As culture change consultants, we will work with your organisation to improve your culture by looking at your purpose, vision, communication, management and leadership skills. We will provide effective strategies to help you define where you want to be in the future and the most effective route to get there.
How do you influence culture change?
Changing organisational culture requires an honest analysis of your current system to recognise the assumptions, beliefs, habits and attitudes of people. We use a range of tools to identify deep-rooted and hidden issues.
After analysis, we use our expertise to strategise long-lasting change. Our strategic consulting method is the result of decades of experience working with Fortune and FTSE 500 companies.
