Enhancing Safeguarding Maturity

Safeguarding is a statutory duty and one of the most significant risks any organisation may face. It should not be considered in isolation. We will help your organisation understand the safeguarding risks it is exposed to and provide advice, support and assurance. Our adaptive solutions enhance safeguarding maturity and support statutory compliance.

Culture has been on the leadership agenda for a long time. Why is this more relevant than ever? What drives or should drive the interest in improving it? We have identified three major groups of triggers: Meet regulator and stakeholder expectations, Culture drives standards of ethics and compliance, Culture drives performance and resilience. Through our experience of developing our own Unifying Culture, our People Advisory and Culture experts can help you define and develop the culture you need for your business to succeed and deliver your purpose through your own Unifying Culture. We can support you at any point throughout your cultural journey. Our strategic partnership with Telos broadens our capacity and capabilities for mobilising the right expertise at scale.

Our culture solutions:

Culture understanding and deep dive. What is your current culture?

Our culture experts use our Unifying Culture model and methodology to help organisations understand their cultural strengths and challenges. This provides a solid understanding of the culture across the business and informs the choices and focus areas for an organisation's culture strategy. We also perform deep dives into particular areas of concern, for example, diversity and inclusion.

Culture maturity assessments - How effective is your approach to developing culture?

Using our culture development and maturity model, we can help you understand the maturity of your approach to developing your organisation's culture.The assessment identifies opportunities to learn and adapt your approach so that you can align your culture to your business purpose and strategy

Culture definition and Strategy What does your culture need to be?

The Unifying Culture model and assessment are used to define the desired organisational culture and strategy. This will include Board alignment on the ‘distinctive Choices’ for your business and where progress needs to be made against the ‘Fundamental Elements.’ We also assure you of the process you undertake to develop and embed your organisational culture.

Cultural Change and Transformation. How can you change and transform your culture?

Our culture experts help organisations deploy various tools and techniques to achieve and sustain culture change and transformation. We prefer focused actions with measured outcomes based on ‘emergent change’ methodology rather than large-scale programmatic change.

We also help organisations check if the culture change is working in practice and if the culture change journey is on track.

We are framework- and tool-agnostic, as we think it’s vital first to understand your business purpose, culture, and strategic ambitions.

There are many drivers for change whether it be the need to reorganise a single function or business unit, right through to a more wide-ranging enterprise-wide transformation. What sets us apart is our expertise in developing approaches that address both the employees' needs and experience, together with the risk and compliance challenges that go hand in hand with complex organisational change initiatives.

  • Change review and advice – A rapid review of in-flight change projects/programmes either as part of an internal audit or for quality assurance and expert advice
  • Change management and adoption – We take the guesswork out of the people side of change management so that your business can realise the benefits of transformation on time and within budget.
