Diversity is key to success in today’s business environment. Innovation is born in diversity and multiple studies show that diversity is a strong enabler for financial success in organisations. Whether it be intercultural, gender, sexual orientation, disability, generational, mental health, socio-economic background, or even diversity of thought, we believe that the strongest organisations are those that create an environment of inclusion.
Journey Partners work with organisations to ensure they are creating an environment that allows diverse individuals and teams to thrive and achieve organisational goals.
Our approach consists of three key phases:
Assessment – We help you to blend, analyse and collect more qualitative and quantitative data to build the argument for change.
Planning – We assist you in developing a diversity strategic plan, gaining buy-in across the organisation, as well as setting KPI’s to measure yourself against over time.
Implementation – We help with: communications strategies, policies, benchmarking, establishing diversity counsels and employee resource groups, establishing mentoring and reverse mentoring programmes, training and coaching to create an aligned approach to your diversity and inclusion efforts.
‘Culture eats strategy for breakfast’, or so the quote attributed to Peter Drucker goes. There is increasing evidence that corporate culture is an indicator of the success and failure of organisations. In fact, almost 70% of business leaders believe that culture provides the greatest source of competitive advantage.
For smaller organisations in pre- and early-growth phases, it is important to spend time identifying, implementing and measuring the type of culture you need to create in order build your brand, compete in your market and ensure successful engagement with employees, clients and customers.
For larger organisations, especially those who have gone through changes to either the internal or external environments, it is important to ensure that the culture which has been created is one which will bring you success in the future, not just the one that brought you successfully through the challenges of the past.
Journey Partners perform culture audits and assessment, culture reframing programmes and implementation strategies with targeted interventions.
Now, more than ever, it is vital to ensure that your people have the skills and abilities to make the step up to the next level. Traditional training programmes no longer suffice as they have been proven to be ineffective at building sustainable skills and lack the ability to engage staff in the learning process.
Journey Partners reimagine the leadership development process, working with you to develop the individuals that will bring your organisation to the next level. We do this by creating multifaceted programmes which bring the latest in leadership development thinking, grounded in research and driven by action-learning techniques.
These programmes are proven to engage and energise people, increase retention and put in place the elements for future success.
Developing and retaining early stage hires can be tricky. Without experience to evidence their performance and being less able to hit the ground running, over 1 in 4 graduates quit their first job within 12 months. They also cost the company more time, money and resources than any other employee, requiring the most mentorship, support and guidance.
Journey Partners works with you to develop your brand and ensure you’re targeting the right graduate candidates. We create bespoke interview and assessment centre processes and develop effective induction and training programmes to ensure your early hires are the future leaders of the organisation.
