In our “Better Workplace Projects” we help businesses to optimise their return on their investment in people by improving workplace culture. We apply our unique 4C model to assess where an organisation is at and then drive what it needs to do to both achieve high performance and be a great place to work.

The 4Cs are representative of the level of maturity of an organisation’s people and culture:

C1: Commitment: The organisation has made public commitments through policies and plans  which have been effectively communicated to people.

C2: Capability: The organisation has invested in the necessary resources (people, tools & equipment, systems & procedures, facilities, etc) to implement its commitments.

C3: Competency: The organisation deploys the knowledge and skills necessary to leverage its capability and deliver positive performance outcomes.

C4: Culture: The organisation has an embedded culture of positive leadership, employee engagement and continuous improvement that consistently delivers high performance outcomes.

We use a number of international best practice frameworks as reference points to:

  • assess where an organisation sits in the 4c hierarchy across the full range of people and culture elements and functions and
  • design and implement plans for improvement opportunities identified in the diagnostic process and
  • utilise a positive psychology approach to optimise employee wellbeing and organisational health.

Better Workplace Projects are designed to support your business aspirations and delivered to fit your budget so they can focus on any or all aspects of people and culture management.
