Consultancy, Project & Interim

Are you ready to turn the challenges of 2020 into the opportunties of 2021?

Do you need expert support to:

  • Capture and act upon corporate learning from enforced remote working last year;
  • Upgrade policies and practices in readiness for hybrid working this year;
  • Build a corporate culture that supports wellbeing, inclusion and balanced working for all employees?

Can I help?

I have over 25 years expertise working with clients to upgrade flexible and remote working practices; improve wellbeing and work-life balance; and create inclusive workplaces that support women’s career progression. In 2021 I’m ready to partner with you and your organisation as you build back better from the disruptions of 2020.

I’m comfortable working on both strategic and operational issues. This year let’s work together, build on your existing successes and transform your business into a world class organisation that fully embraces balanced working, wellbeing and inclusion.

Consultancy support for your strategic challenges

The challenge last year was to quickly set up homeworking for employees. The challenge this year is to build on lessons learnt to create policies and working practices that fully serve our 21st century lives.

This requires a rethink of both how and where work is carried out; and even how jobs are structured.

If you’re ready to rise to the challenge I offer two options:

  • The Rebalance mastermind

A structured 12 month online programme designed to support in-house HR Managers, D&I Specialists and other change makers as they work to improve flexible working, gender balance, wellbeing and work-life balance within their organisation.

Mastermind members work to address solid business issues and generate tangible change. In the process they will enhance their knowledge and skills as they become an HR change maker. They also benefit from the support of a small cohort of like-minded peers; and have access to world-class expertise at a fraction of the cost of bespoke consultancy.

Limited to ten participants, the group will meet online monthly for teaching and coaching sessions.

  • Bespoke consultancy

Perhaps you want to go further than the Mastermind allows. You may even be ready to appoint a Head of Balanced Working, Wellbeing and Inclusion. I offer bespoke consultancy support tailored to your needs. Contact me to discuss possibilities.

Operational support for your people

Supporting employee wellbeing became a top priority for many HR teams during 2020. Maintaining a work-life balance continues to be difficult for  people, whether they’re juggling work and caring or living alone and finding it hard to disconnect from technology.

If you’re looking for ways to upgrade your support in 2021 the following may be of interest to you.

  • Employee workshops

Based on my book I offer a series of short workshops to support employees in managing the key challenges around flexible and remote working. Topics include:

  • Regaining Balance: simple strategies to understand why you’re struggling with your work life balance and how to remedy the situation.
  • How to redesign your job for balanced working: for managers and staff who want to work more effectively in the new hybrid environment.
  • Negotiating a flexible arrangement that suits you and your boss.
  • Job Redesign: The crucial HR skill

Workshops can be tailored for specific needs; and are also suitable for parent’s and women’s network events.

  • Group coaching

There’s now considerable evidence to suggest your female talent may be holding themselves back because of work life balance concerns. This small group eight week coaching programme (also based on my book) is designed to support working mothers struggling to balance home commitments and career. The programme makes a powerful addition to any existing initiatives your organisation currently offers to support women’s development.

Are you ready to be a world class work-life balance employer?

Imagine an organisation where:

Employees feel able to bring their whole selves to work.

People recognise the benefits of good work-life balance and support each other to achieve it.

Work is seen as something you do, not somewhere you go.

Success is measured by the outputs you produce, not the number of hours you spend in the office.

Customized jobs enable agile working and the retention of key talent. 

 

Consider the benefits:

  • Mounting research evidence has confirmed that good work-life balance increases job satisfaction, improves workplace performance, strengthens organisational commitment and results in better physical and mental health.
  • Balanced working is increasingly recognised as the heart of sustainable organisations; and as underpinning corporate sustainability strategies.
  • Reorganising for better balance by moving towards a results oriented work environment enables a clearer definition of expected outputs/results and an opportunity to modernise (or eradicate) entrenched but unproductive working practices.
  • Introducing a change programme under the work-life balance banner is likely to be well received; and to foster flexible and co-operative thinking - essential qualities for an Agile Workforce.

  

Let's work together, build on your existing successes and transform your organisation into a world class work-life balance employer.

Balanced Working is Sustainable Working
