What we do

We help a wide range of organisations realise the benefits of new ways of working. If you want a positive impact on your bottom line and more satisfied, productive staff we provide a powerful way to transform your business. Our training, consultancy and support services are all focused on helping you get the best from new, more flexible ways of working.

You will find that we are not an ‘HR’ consultancy promoting the welfare of employees, we are a business consultancy promoting measureable benefits of flexible working, such as reduced cost and increased output. We will help you get a more productive, loyal and motivated workforce, by managing people effectively.

Our services are tailored to meet your specific individual requirements.  There is no “one size fits all” solution because every organisation is different. By helping to develop and introduce new strategies, business plans and procedures. We can help you to improve customer service delivery as well as enhance the work-life balance of your staff.  We’ll also advise you on making the best use of your office space to achieve cost reductions in the property portfolio whilst improving team working and cohesiveness.

To find out more about what we can offer, take a look at our consultancy and training pages on this website, send us an email or give us a call.

Keep Britain Tidy is the current name of our client ENCAMS, (Environmental Campaigns Ltd), a charity that promotes environmental awareness through various local and national initiatives.a At the time of the project, they employed about 110 people, distributed in small regional teams in offices throughout England, as well as a central services office staff of about 40 based in Wigan.

As a charity KBT was under financial pressure and had identified that providing small regional offices was no longer economic. They had a high turnover of staff resulting in considerable costs of recruiting and training new staff. It was recognised that flexible working could offer a good contribution to these issues.

We held meetings with all staff both in the regions and central services to establish the current working practices, culture and needs of the staff and their desires for flexible working. Guidelines were drafted for the flexible working options and pilots were set up in two regions and central services with clear objectives. In the regions the pilots involved working from home, annualised hours, 9 day fortnight and flexitime working.

The pilots were judged successful and flexible working was implemented across the organisation. We designed and delivered short training sessions for managers in a number of topics to support the change.

As a result of our work with ENCAMS, they became the first charity in the country to be accorded the Investors in People Work-Life Balance standard. They have also figured in the Sunday Times Top 100 small companies list for two years. Staff are universally supportive of the flexible working options and would not return to previous working arrangements.
