How To Keep People At The Heart of A Company Restructure

In a highly competitive and dynamic business environment, SME companies have to be quick to adapt to change whether it's due to a merger, buy out or change in business strategy. We often get asked what the best way is to manage and approach internal change, especially as a poorly managed restructure can quickly snowball into an organisational disaster with long term negative effects for all involved.

In this video discussion with Katriina Tahka and Simone Gigg we share the three key factors that keep people at the heart of the process.

On International Women's Day, lets make a pledge to keep diversity alive all year round

 Be bold for change is the campaign theme this year for International Women's Day, so as we take part in the various IWD events today, let's make a bold pledge to keep the spotlight on diversity and inclusion all year round beyond the annual celebrations.

March is always a busy month on the diversity calendar! Between International Women’s Day (IWD) and Harmony Day most of the month is taken up with celebrating gender diversity and then cultural diversity.

But what happens once the diversity events wrap up? Is it back to business as usual? Does diversity & inclusion become a statistic to be sliced and diced for the annual reports?

Sustain your diversity strategy all year round

March was a very busy month for diversity and inclusion.  Many organisations celebrated International Women’s Day (IWD) and then Harmony Day.  Now in April larger organisations ( 100+ employees) have shifted their focus to finalising Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) annual reports and Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation applications. 

If March was D&I party season, April is reporting season!  In my experience, once the final reports are filed diversity fatigue kicks in and by mid April we usually see a lull in diversity & inclusion activity in most organisations. This is why it's critical to have in place a highly effective diversity strategy and change plan to keep your diversity momentum going 365 days of the year.

Strong change management is the key to unlocking successful unconscious bias programs

Unconscious bias is the must have ‘little black dress’ of the moment. There are countless organisations exploring how it impacts their business, leaders, and key decisions. Unfortunately, most organisations are bundling it with diversity and inclusion efforts only, which isn’t getting the traction they need to sustain it. I was recently invited by the lovely folks at Peoplecorp to deliver a short session on how to embed unconscious bias, so I thought I’d share it with you also.
