People & Culture Consulting
People are undoubtedly the greatest asset of any business. However, they are also typically the asset that causes the most worry and stress in small- to medium-sized enterprises. That’s where Hood Sweeney's People & Culture Consulting comes in.
Understanding how to manage your people and transform your culture to grow your business and your bottom line is the surest way to stop you worrying.
To make a better business, you need more than dedicated talent and a great idea. You need great leadership and a quality team.
For some business owners, the responsibility of managing people can be difficult, complicated and frustrating.
That’s why we are passionate about creating an enduring partnership to support you and build your confidence in dealing with your team, should you need it.
Then, together, we’ll build and sustain a winning team and high-performance culture, reflecting the values you want your business to be known for: excellence, quality and client service.
Hood Sweeney partners with you to build your team and culture in four ways.
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 & 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 on 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.
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.
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 organisation structure, 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.
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.
