Connecting People and Culture
to Build Enriching Workspaces

We strengthen people and culture by enhancing workplaces that foster
innovation, collaboration, and belonging.

People and Culture/HR Solutions

People and Culture is more than just hiring and managing employees; it’s a strategic function that plays a critical role in driving organizational success. We drive measurable change by using 70+ proprietary metrics to uncover bias and change the landscape of how effectively companies hire, retain, promote, and develop talent. From there, we drive competitive advantage and systemic change by helping build and execute multi-year people and business strategies. Our data-driven insights give us the power to make the right decisions that align with your business objectives. Whether you need assistance with hiring, retention, performance management, or employee engagement, we have the expertise to guide you to sustainable success.

Data Assessment

Culture Snapshot

Focused, one-off surveys to assess individual issues such as employee engagement, training needs, skillset gaps, flight risks, talent pipeline needs, employee value proposition, work/life integration, and hybrid work environment.

Digital Focus Groups

In addition to traditional focus groups (both remote and in-person), we also provide the experience of interactive, digital conversations (and so on with the existing text). Interactive, digital conversations that combat survey fatigue by gathering data from up to 1,000 people within 20-30 minutes. Net impact is faster time to insight and drastically lower administrative burden in data collection and analysis.

Culture Assessment

A comprehensive evaluation of insights across surveys, focus groups, and/or interviews to establish a baseline for strategic planning, training, executive coaching, and other culture change initiatives.

Training Impact Assessment

Baseline assessment of skillsets through surveys, interviews, and/or focus groups conducted before and/or after a training or intervention to assess measurable impact on mindset and behavior.

Longitudinal Employee Lifecycle Assessment

Holistic look at insights across recruiting metrics, engagement surveys, and performance reviews, including benchmarking.

Process Audit

Analysis of institutional biases within processes, policies, and procedures. These analyses span the areas of compensation (especially pay equity and bonus structures), recruiting, development, promotion, and succession planning.

External Assessment

Identify unrealized opportunities by evaluating customer impact (gaps between desired and current market share) as well as corporate and social responsibility (brand equity, reputation, and approachability).

Accountability Audit and Benchmarking

Benchmark metrics of human capital efficiency and performance against competitors, with options to drill down by race/ethnicity, gender, job classification, region (down to county), education level, and professional experience.

Materiality Impact Analysis

Build the business case for human capital initiatives and proactively prepare for the SEC and EFRAG’s anticipated disclosure requirements by quantifying the contribution of human capital performance to financial metrics such as revenue, profitability, and ROI.

Pay Equity Analysis

Intersectional statistical analysis of the relationship between compensation and potential causes of bias (e.g., race/ethnicity, gender, disability, or veteran status), while isolating the impact of confounding variables (e.g., tenure, professional experience, role, function, level, or performance). Frequently paired with Materiality Impact Analysis to quantify the monetary benefits of closing gaps in pay.

HR Operations
