Embracing Diverse Paths: Navigating Education and Career Journeys In a world that values individuality, it’s essential to recognize that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to education and career development. Each person’s journey is unique, shaped by their distinct learning styles and personal preferences. National Apprenticeship Week serves as a timely reminder to explore diverse paths…
Making any change in our career path can be daunting but the only thing of which we can be certain is the environment in which we work will change several times during our career. How do we stay on top of that change and remain employable as well as engaged at work without undue stress?
Knowing what our workplace culture is and deciding if it is fit for purpose in the current environment is a pre-requisite for success if we value our people’s inventiveness and ingenuity as well as their effort. We help identify that culture and change it if need be.
Another key aspect of the talent lifecycle is engaging our people when they’re with us. Significant research backs up that engaged team members stay with an employer longer. We know people will leave for many reasons, but we would like them to be fully contributing when they are with us and when they leave us it should be a sign that value has been added to both people and employer.
We’re changing the way we look at recruiting – seeing it as only a part of the talent lifecycle. Very few of today’s jobs have ready made pools of candidates just waiting. We start looking at the process from school leaver to experienced hire and dramatically reduce the time your hiring managers have to spend on this very important aspect of being an employer.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Possibly one of the most important areas we work in, our diversity, equity, and inclusion work focuses on developing grassroots level change and helping organisations facilitate and amplify that. We believe that legislation and training are essential but they fall way short of what is needed to create a fairer and stronger society. We don’t have ‘the answer’ but we can develop, and certify you to be an awesome facilitator of change.
We often advise that the most cost-effective way to recruit is not to loose people in the first place. We assist by designing career paths and evidence based performance planning that gives our team members something to aim for – at any and every level they work. When people feel they have something to aim for that aligns with their aptitude and aspirations, they feel valued and are less likely to leave.
Leadership studies abound and so too do leadership programs. There is no doubt we all know more about leadership these days. But there is a big difference between knowing about it and doing it. We go straight into the mechanics of how it works and help you, in a highly personal way, develop the exact skills and habits that will let you lead at what you’re doing, or want to be doing, now.
Human Capital Support
“If staff, like machinery, were on the balance sheet, workplaces would look after them better”. We have heard this said and we agree with the sentiment. The way we look after them better is by a focus on the talent lifecycle. We assist workplaces in assessing who they currently have, who they might need, and who needs to be developed and then we help to deliver all this.
