Consultancy Solutions

From your first thoughts about using new ways of working to make your business more effective through to implementation of complete programmes Wisework can support you.

You'll get the optimum benefits quickly by supporting your senior managers to introduce new working practices as part of their business strategy, exploring feasibility and developing the business case. Robust implementation plans help you to deliver with a constant eye on achieving the business benefits. We often start with a “top team” workshop intended to clarify the intended direction, define the strategy and set out a route map to achieve what is needed.

Our approach to consulting is flexible and responsive. We want to help you achieve outstanding results for your organisation. No two organisations are identical so your needs for consultancy help will be unique, but might include some of the examples below:

Meeting the business needs

Helping you to put together the business case and strategic plan for flexible working; making sure your implementation meets your business needs including improving  employee engagement; evaluating and proving the business case.

Creating the culture

Making sure that the environment and climate of your organisation support new ways of working. Working with senior management to identify the desired culture and ensure working practices and management style reflect this.

Project management

Ensuring that the technology being implemented, the people using it and the facilities they occupy are planned together in an integrated way. Working with and supporting specialist functions such as  HR, IT and FM. We often facilitate cross functional teams to work effectively together to produce the best results.

Consulting and communicating with employees

Helping to understand employee needs, advising on the communications programme and running briefing sessions where appropriate.

Policy, procedure and practice
