The Challenge of Workplace Culture Change
Your Culture is your true “Brand”. The idea of changing workplace culture may sound simple to someone who’s never been faced with the task before. But as anyone with experience knows, it’s a massive challenge. You can’t trade in an existing culture like you would a used car. Workplace culture change can be a complex puzzle with many puzzle pieces. So where do you start, and how can we help?
We work with you to assess the problem, implement strategies to address gaps, and position your organization for recovery. Strategies could include success profiles to make sure you are hiring the right people, onboarding processes to ensure your new hires get off to a great start and can contribute to business value quickly, employee development, performance management processes that are effective and not just “an annual exercise”, appropriate rewards and recognition incentives, and succession planning to protect business continuity.
Next, we can help you develop an organization that is aligned with the culture you envision. Of course, at the heart of good organizational development is the deep connection between the best business processes and structures on the one hand, and the people working within the organization on the other.
Your People are the “Heart” of your organization, and we can help you create a “Healthy Heart” through the development of your Employees, Teams, and of course…your Organization!

Vast Knowledge of the Manufacturing Industry
I’ve had the pleasure of assisting Jeff in filling a variety of positions for the past 5 years. Jeff’s vast knowledge of the manufacturing industry, along with his keen insight of his internal clients, made working with him one the best client relationships I’ve ever had. Jeff collaborates all through the hiring process, which allowed us to work as a team to identify and secure the best talent for his client. Jeff has mastered the art of “soft skills” and approaches challenging conversations with ease. He has the ability to be tough when necessary and bend when it’s in the best interest of the parties involved. I hope that we will continue to partner together for many more years to come!
First Class HR Professional
I am pleased to recommend Jeff. I believe Jeff to be a first class HR professional and a pleasure to work with and for. We worked with Jeff and his company to provide executive education to his managers from many countries. Jeff allowed us to be successful and more importantly has considered and acted to make the participants of the program and his company be successful. He really understands organizational development and learning as a vehicle for profound change and ensures that the structures he puts in place are there to create resonance between all of the parts to enable that change. I know he has fulfilled many activities in his HR career and in my experience has done them with; thought, consideration for those with whom he has worked, a great sense of humor and with an eye to innovative practices, resulting in success. I have no hesitation in making this recommendation.
