Culture

Wouldn’t it be great to have engaged and productive stakeholders in your business, so they can play a more active role in delivering your purpose and plan? Improving a workplace culture can have a dramatic improvement on so many areas of a business.

Successful businesses can struggle with maintaining a great culture – growth and change require a focus on strengthening culture from time to time. Growing businesses often have an influx of new people through recruitment, or acquisition or merger, and new leadership can sometimes create a disjointed culture. Equally, people leaving your business either through dissatisfaction or because of operational and structural changes, can mean cultural issues also need to be addressed.

We have a great deal of experience improving the culture in all manner of businesses, through collaborative workshops and engagement processes. Services include:

  • Accru plus Culture definition (values/behaviours)
  • Accru plus Engagement surveys
  • Accru plus Culture improvement: evaluation; program design; implementation support
  • Accru plus Cultural change and development
  • Accru plus Team building and coaching
  • Accru plus Change management
  • Accru plus Facilitated culture workshops

However, if you get it right, your business will become stronger and more sustainable.

Change Management

Change is the only constant in business. Change can arise for many reasons, including legislative requirements, new product lines, a business relocation, new reporting lines for employees, operational improvements and new IT systems. It can also be more fundamental, for example a full organisational restructure in response to an industry reform. Whatever change is taking place in an organisation, it’s important to approach it correctly.

If you don’t manage change effectively, it creates baggage amongst your workforce that can negatively impact any future changes you want to make. If you do manage change correctly there is less resistance and employees are more engaged - ultimately the outcomes from a change are better, and realised more quickly. Creating a change-ready culture is one of the most powerful things a business can do.

As change management experts, involved in large-scale organisational restructures right through to helping prepare organisations for small projects, we know how to prepare for and implement change. Services include:

  • Accru plus Change management readiness assessment
  • Accru plus Change management training for staff and leaders
  • Accru plus Improving change management leadership
  • Accru plus Developing change management strategies
  • Accru plus Culture building
  • Accru plus Advice on stakeholder communication and engagement
  • Accru plus Change management advice and project governance
