We're here to help. Whether designing organization-wide strategies, developing core values, or conducting a single review, we support you across the full range of your talent needs. We partner closely with each client and develop a plan that addresses your current challenges. Here's a summary of the types of support we provide.
A strong organizational framework enables you to operate effectively and achieve your goals. We partner with you to design specific roles, departmental structures, and full organizational charts. Drawing on our expertise and coupled with input from your team, we develop useful tools and drive staffing plans that enable you to build a strong team and achieve your mission.
A unique set of core values can serve as your “north star” -- creating a powerful force for decision-making and helping you attract mission-aligned talent. We create a set of values that reflects your vision and serves as guiding principles for your team. We facilitate discussions among stakeholders to gain a deep understanding of your organization’s culture and synthesize what we’ve learned into a set of specific, actionable core values. Once complete, we work with your team to implement the core values and ensure they are an integral part of your daily work.
A rigorous, equitable, and efficient recruitment process equips you to hire great talent and leave a great impression on all candidates. We take a user-centered approach to process design, considering the candidate and interviewer experience as we map out a clear recruitment process and craft job descriptions, core competencies, interview guides, rubrics, and thought exercises. Once finalized, we design and deliver trainings to set your team up for success as they put these new tools into practice.
A strong onboarding plan accelerates a hire’s ability to have impact and lays the foundation for long-term engagement. We map out comprehensive onboarding plans, seamlessly integrated into your existing performance management systems and customized for both individual hires as well as entire departments or organizations. We identify key content, design training sessions, and create onboarding calendars. We also develop goal-setting frameworks, and where it makes sense, integrate the process into your goal-setting and review process. Once designed, we partner with you to implement the plan, managing all logistics and scheduling.
Thoughtful review processes are critical to the success of any team. We design a performance management framework that reflects your culture, core values, and core competencies. Drawing on our own expertise and incorporating perspectives from staff across the organization, we develop comprehensive review systems, then partner with you to put them into place. We also offer individual performance management plans for CEOs and Executive Directors, partnering with the Board and staff to collect comprehensive feedback. In addition, we can serve as an external partner, generating the review and driving the process annually.
An effective compensation strategy can help you attract and retain top performers and ensure that you're rewarding people in a fair and effective way. We help you design a motivating and equitable compensation philosophy and process. We work with your team to understand existing practices and draw on our own expertise to collaboratively design and implement a compensation philosophy, structure, and process so that you, your board, and your team are all on the same page.
