People and Change
Empower people to be your differentiator
In the face of a volatile economic climate, global competition and constant change, companies are looking for ways to differentiate themselves. The companies that thrive understand that great talent is essential to success.
North Highland believes that businesses made up of people with the right blend of capabilities and conviction can do amazing things. Let us help you perfect your organization, stimulate talent potential and inspire change.
How We Can Help
In a world where competition is fierce, resting on your laurels is not a winning strategy. Organizations that continue to evolve have a better chance of survival and of outperforming their competitors. North Highland can help you build an effective organization, one that delivers on its promise, and is primed to compete with an optimized business strategy.
Talent is your organization’s single largest expenditure and your most defining asset, but higher performance is not as simple as multiplying headcount times hours. North Highland can help you improve how you plan, source, attract, engage, develop, reward and mobilize your employees, stimulating their potential to exceed performance goals.
Change is the new normal, but unfortunately, so is the failure of most change initiatives. So why take the same old approach? North Highland brings change management out of the ivory tower. We demystify change by applying logic and creativity, and then we make change take root for sustainable success. Whatever the nature of your change initiative, we can help you inspire and engage your people and accelerate business results.
Changing How HR Functions
Behind every high-performing company is a high-performing HR department led by a well-respected, inspiring CHRO. It's not easy – the demands around talent, knowledge and leadership accumulate on the hour. At North Highland, we can help you design and empower teams that deliver remarkable results, changing how HR thinks and functions for the better.
Disruptive Change - All About the Business
During disruptive changes in an organization, HR professionals and consultants often talk about “managing change,” “dealing with resistance,” and “gaining buy-in.” As a business leader, though, your job is delivering business results. Dealing with change, resistance and buy-in are means to that end.
Federal Agency Expands Workforce by 175% While Improving Talent Management Capabilities
The Department of Homeland Security’s biometric technology program needed to nearly triple its workforce and transform its HR capabilities. North Highland helped them improve employee recruitment, stabilize retention and better support national safety.
Using Neuroscience to Get Your Change Effort Off the Ground
Organizational change has a reputation for being painful and often unsuccessful. However, it doesn't have to be that way. Structuring your change efforts using what we know about how people actually think will make change easier and adoption more likely. When you do so, your change plan will probably look different and work better.
Improving Organizational, Team and Personal Effectiveness
Your company may be struggling with quality or productivity issues. Or perhaps employee morale is low. So you’ve worked with your leadership team and come up with some initiatives for improving operational efficiency and effectiveness and/or employee morale.
