Working with organizations



People & Culture


With our international and cross industry experience, we help organizations design or reaffirm their strategic foundations, through a clear formulation of their value proposition, mission and vision. The approach can take classic  steps, such as the one below, or be fully modeled on the organization's complexity


  1. Assess and review organizational structure with a focus on growth and development
  2. Research and recommend alternatives when needed
  3. Establish a road map enabling change


We also help build, consolidate or redefine any organizations' people management framework, review their communication channels and ensure they are adapted to the current and coming industry trends, as well as to team members working locally and internationally.


To grasp the finesse and complexity of organizations, we normally start by sitting in meetings as silent observers of team dynamics and participants' individual behaviors. Our findings are then presented and discussed and the outcome used to build plans to increase productivity in meetings, groups and individual interactions.




Employer branding


We support our clients in the development of a strong employer brand, using our broad global experience of the topic, incorporating the main elements of their activities, and specificities about culture and vision into it.


This will translate it into a strong employee value proposition (EVP) communicated to their network, and to the outside world. In using all existing digital as well as more traditional channels, we will position our client as one great employer to work with, helping attract new talents as well as retain and develop existing ones.




Leadership development


We are experts in advising and coaching leaders, giving them the keys to manage individuals and teams, and embrace a leadership style in line with today’s teams and business expectations


We mentor professionals at all levels of the organization, from colleagues level to executive, and guide them on how to remove barriers to effective communication, improve relationships, build and increase individual and team’s efficiency




A la carte (interim) services


We enjoy stepping in any type of organization to complete interim and temporary mandates. These specific assignments are available for organizations to benefit from the know-how of a professional people and culture executive in-house. Mandates' length can vary from weeks to months, depending on the  specifications and objectives set together with the organization.


As examples, our advices would efficiently and effectively benefit organizations who are facing temporary challenging situations in the fields of:


  • People & Culture management
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Enabling change


or in any other transformational or restructuring activities, where we are able to set-up the foundation for a better managed organization



As some organizations may not necessarily need a full-time executive in charge of People & Culture on board all the time, we also intervene as shared resources.


This means that we are available to perform tasks mentioned on this page, for just a defined number of days per month, helping organizations manage and develop their teams as well as increase engagement levels, without carrying the burden of a full-time people and culture executive on their payroll.





Working with individuals



Individuals can greatly benefit from our professional services
