Organization Development and Organizational Design
Human Resources Professional Group defines Organization Development (OD) as the process of improving the performance of organizations and the people in those organizations. OD addresses root-cause obstacles to achieving high performance status. Organization Development initiatives can be the lever that turns aspirations into reality. Achieving true organization effectiveness can be realized by using behavioral insights, creative design and high levels of participation.
Human Resources Professional Group’s approach to OD involves five keys to building high performance organizations:
Culture and Team BuildingHuman Resources Professional Group experts will work with you to develop approaches that align the positions and attitudes of your teams with the culture of your organization; its mission, vision and values. This may involve employee focus groups, improved corporate communication practices, and/or facilitated team building exercises that allow everyone an open, frank and respectful exchange of views.
Leadership DevelopmentIn today’s knowledge-based economy, an organization really can’t grow or prosper beyond the capability of its leadership and the commitment and skill of its workforce. Regardless of whether you want to focus on supervisors, managers, executives or all three, Human Resources Professional Group can help you create a strategic leadership development program that is right for your organization.
Our programs are designed to focus on behaviors and attitudes, as well as skills. We create a program based on your objectives, with the right blend of skills development, diagnostics, self-awareness, coaching and support. We ensure participants know what to expect, and what is expected of them. Our programs are flexible, allowing individuals to access critical learning in a way that accommodates unique needs, personalities, learning styles and pre-conditioning.
The result is a robust, multi-dimensional program that addresses the business needs and priorities of your organization.
Change ManagementOD demands change of some kind, and accepting that changes are required is the first step in making them a reality. We can help your organization to both recognize the need to change, and then ease the transition to new ways of working or interacting. Human Resources Professional Group does this by helping you identify activities that will have the highest potential for change in your organization. We assist you in scheduling a realistic rate of change, and will facilitate group sessions to help increase everyone’s comfort with the planned changes.
Outsourced Training and Development ManagementHuman Resources Professional Group also helps organizations sustain their OD by working with managers to scope and plan for organization’s continuous learning requirements. We develop plans and service agreements with organizations that create certainty around what learning programs are going to be delivered, when they will be delivered and how much they will cost.
Employee Engagement StrategiesWorkers today want feedback on their performance, a sense of accomplishment, and opportunities to grow. They also want to feel valued. If you need to strengthen employee engagement to achieve your mission, Human Resources Professional Group can help. We offer a range of initiatives, “real world” experienced practitioners, and a passion to see our clients succeed.
Building High Performance Organizations
A change initiative is often driven by either crisis or the need to adjust to new expectations, fiscal constraints, new priorities or demands from clients and stakeholders, changing markets or a wide range of uncontrollable variables. Whatever is driving your organization’s need to change, Human Resources Professional Group can help you structure for success.
This could mean a complete overhaul of structure, or require only smaller changes with a focus on specific aspects of the organization. Our organization design experts are active listeners and provide advice and solutions tailored to your specific needs. This advice is based on a careful analysis of your organization, its strategic objectives and the pressures that affect organizational performance. Our findings, options and recommendations are presented to management and, as appropriate, to their teams for discussion. Once an option is approved, we help with planning migration to the changed structure.
As full service consultants, Human Resources Professional Group’s specialists will be involved throughout the process. This may involve advising on timing and rate of implementation, developing a communications strategy to keep members of the organization informed of progress and how it will affect them, advising on how new positions can be resourced, and other implications of structural change, such as how the placement of work stations affects the flow of information, for example.
