Research & Evaluation

We are a boutique talent management consultancy dedicated to driving organisational performance through nurturing people

Your Business Success Is Our Mission

We have a team of university academics, business psychologists and management consultants who carry out qualitative and quantitative research and evaluation within organisational and work contexts.

We help organisations get beneath the surface of a problem they are facing.

  • Below the symptoms they are seeing (e.g. attrition, low productivity, disengagement),
  • to understand the root cause (e.g. leadership, culture, bullying)
  • and target solutions (leadership development, team interventions, speak up and communication systems).

At the core of our work is the use of research investigation to understand people and solve problems. We recognise the value of listening to the most significant members of your organisation- employees, clients, customers and stakeholders. We adopt an evidence-based approach to explore business data and analytics of all types to explore problems, illuminate solutions and evaluate outcomes. Driving our approach is that the findings can be used in a meaningful way by businesses.

Apply rigorous research methodologies to fully explore issues and recommend evidence-based solutions.

It may be that you are undergoing a period of change and need your people and culture to transform to meet the future needs of your business. We would hold a free scoping meeting with you to understand the aims and intentions of the change and suggest potential approaches. These approaches might include: predictive HR Analytics, focus groups, surveys, psychometric assessment…
