People Insights

Our research develops insights that cut through complexity, precisely define people issues and help you to generate action.

Avoid wasteful projects with our people insights

Before embarking on any major people project you should first have a clear definition of the problem you’re trying to solve.

Our research soutions will provide insights that help you make people decisions with confidence: That your projects will deliver results; avoid wasted time and none; and get buy-in from stakeholders.

Make a compelling case for change

We’re living in a period of unprecedented change and volatility. Not only does that place new demands on your people, but it also means that their needs and expectations are changing.

Many people problems are wicked problems. They are complex, multi-faceted and ambiguous. This makes it very difficult to build consensus among decision-makers and achieve their buy-in to potential solutions.

Ou people insights solutions will help you to make the clear, compelling and evidence-based case that you need to get your people projects off the starting blocks.

What people ‘problems’ can we help you solve?

We can develop insights into any ‘human’ problem at work that relates in some way to motivation, emotion or behaviour.  That’s most things, but here are some examples.

Performance

What’s currently driving or acting as a barrier to the performance of your people?

Stress

What’s are the causes of emotional stress and burnout in your organisation?

Relationships

What’s creating conflict or undermining trust in or between teams?

Engagement

What really matters to your people; and what will help them choose to commit?

Change

How well equipped are you to embark on a major change; or what’s creating resistance?

Innovation

What do you need to do to unleash the creativity of your people and drive value from it?

How we develop people insights

Our team’s combination of psychological expertise and business experience enable us to solve the most challenging people problems.

We use a combination quantitative and qualitative approaches, which is determined by your needs and context. You might have already run a survey, for example, and need a deeper insight into some of the issues. Equally, however, we might start with interviews or focus groups and then quantify the results.

Our technology partnership with The People Experience Hub enables us to provide secure, robust enterprise surveys in addition to our qualitative insights.

The dynamics of motivation and emotion

Our work is underpinned by a psychological framework (Reversal Theory) that emphasises adaptability and provides a map of motivation and emotion that enables our insights into complex and difficult people problems.
