Preparing for New Tech & the Future of Work

The conventional in-office 9am-5pm is gone—the future is hybrid. That means new processes, norms, and cultures that serve a diverse and dynamic workforce, no matter where or when people are working. Is your org ready to manage the next major workforce change?
While tools and technologies enable collaboration and work continuity, an intentional focus on people and their mindsets will make or break your ability to hire and retain high-performing employees. We can guide you through that transformation. Let's talk.

Human Experience Design

The Human Experience Design (HXD) team helps organizations innovate by designing products, services, and experiences that people love and value. Our end-to-end approach guides clients through creating a compelling vision, identifying opportunity targets, generating and validating solution ideas, and preparing to build or scale. Because no experience occurs in isolation, we are fluent across digital, physical, service, and virtual modalities.

Multi-faceted, interconnected industries are changing culture and setting new customer expectations for what valuable, meaningful experiences look and feel like. Advanced, immersive technologies such as gaming, NFT’s, the metaverse, and AR/VR have gained immense traction with Generation X and younger consumers.

The Organizational Effectiveness (OE) team helps organizations transform by guiding leaders and business teams through change, creating an engaged and productive organizational culture.

Many innovation and transformation efforts fail because an organization’s people, culture, and processes aren’t ready to support and accelerate the change. While strategy is important, having a strong, aligned, and empowering culture is a more certain and sustainable path to success.

Organizations that focus on building their culture and supporting their leaders and teams as an integral element of success tend to see improvements in speed, alignment, and productivity.

Our OE team is made up of Organizational Effectiveness Consultants, Communication Consultants, and Content Developers with a broad range of capabilities, including:
  • Organizational Effectiveness

Learning and Development

The Learning & Development (L&D) team helps organizations empower their employees by creating learning experiences that help people succeed at work and move up in their careers.

Organizational changes require individual change, and the speed of employee adoption of change impacts ROI and ultimately whether business strategy is achieved. Companies that invest in the growth of their employees see improvements in key business metrics such as individual performance, speed to adoption, employee engagement and retention, and job market advantage.

We begin by evaluating existing programs and identifying drivers of performance, then craft engaging, multi-channel learning solutions that build competence and confidence. Our L&D team can guide you through the complexities of these changes and decisions.

Our team includes Learning Consultants and Instructional Designers who provide a broad range of capabilities, including:
  • Consulting

    Performance analysis
    Competency mapping
    Curriculum design
    Onboarding programs
    Program evaluation
  • Development
