Partnering Framework

People and Culture Partner Diagram2

Engage

In our experience, most companies think of ‘culture’ as merely representing how their people feel about their workplace. Instead, we consider it a fundamental strategy to improve performance.

Organisations that have a positive culture tend to be high performing and create an inherent passion for what the company does.

With that goal in mind, Hood Sweeney’s People and Culture Consulting team becomes immersed in your business to learn all about you, your business and your pain points.

Our aim is to build a partnership with you that relates directly to your business objectives, based upon our in-depth knowledge of your business and what keeps you up at night.

We’ll focus on the key changes to your people and culture practices that will matter the most and add value to your business.

Protect

Our fundamental principle is to protect you against any people or industrial threats to your organisation.

We do this by completing a "People and Culture Health Check", which underpins all our recommendations. This process identifies any key issues in your people and culture practices and enables us to create a practical and commercial strategy to navigate these ‘people’ problems and alleviate you from industrial risks applicable to your industry.

This includes ensuring you are complying and adhering to all relevant employment legislation.

Build

Having taken the time to understand your business and its people issues, our focus will then turn to recommending initiatives to build your team’s performance aligned with your goals and vision.

This may include changes to your reward and recognition practices, training and development programs or performance management systems.

Once agreed, we then work with you and your team to take your business to the next level by implementing these practical initiatives.

Sustain

Once the new initiatives and practices are established, we can then partner with you to provide ongoing people and culture advice and support as you require.

With the ultimate reassurance of this constant relationship, you can be confident in sustaining not only your team’s performance but that of your business as well.
