Research and Insight

Your key to a well-informed people strategy.

Custom Research Solution Illustration

Careful research at the start of a project gives your HR solutions the best chance of success. Carrying out research is key to a well-informed people strategy and its successful implementation, where challenges and objections are anticipated and addressed. When  organisations introduce HR and people solutions that don’t work out, time and money are wasted and the employee experience can be poor.

We have 26 years’ experience of  research; both directly for clients, and in wider research projects funded by groups of organisations.

We undertake research inside your organisation to fully understand the challenge, its impact on your organisation and people; and outside to see what others are doing.

We offer two types of research:

Internal

Walk in the shoes of your people with employee research. We’ll help you understand your employees’ real needs and experiences using a tailored mix of employee surveys, interviews and focus groups, carried out in person or online. And because we do this before designing a solution, you can be confident that your resulting interventions will be perceived as relevant, and therefore effective.

External

Tackle a challenge you’re facing by tapping into other organisations’ knowledge and experience in the same area. We interview other employers to find out how they are dealing with similar issues. Our research gives you a set of valuable case studies and comparisons.

Research Case Study

A global luxury fashion client wanted a compelling career proposition to support employee engagement, retention and business growth. The start point was a shared vision, informed by external insights on careers today.

We provided research insights and thought leadership, together with case studies of innovative career development approaches. This meant our client could build a persuasive business case and engage senior stakeholders in their global career strategy.
