Alice Dendinger, SPHR, collaborates with a talented team of seasoned consultants who have unique knowledge, skills, abilities and talents in all areas of business and HR Systems. We work a bit backwards as we start by discussing your vision and desired results instead of what we have to offer. We may customize a blend of solutions to meet your needs. We see everything as part of a system that has a direct or indirect impact on the other systems within your organization. Our approach is fluff-free and direct. We have fun with a purpose and a passion for your employee well-being and business results. Our approach is built upon mutual respect and value for each other.
Step One – Your Vision and Goals
We work with individuals and organizations with an insatiable curiosity about who you are and understanding your vision and goals.
We want to know the results that you want. We earn the status of valued partner who helps you articulate the purpose and passion behind the needs and requests of your business. The foundation of trust between us begins.
Step One begins with conversation, questions and a lively exchange of ideas and options. You know your people and organization best, and we help you articulate what you know about the current situation. We care enough about you to help you find the right solution – if it is not the HR Alchemist – we connect you with those who might have more time or talent to support you in your pursuit of success.
Step Two – Digging Deeper
We dig deeper into discovery about what is hindering your people, work processes or organization from getting the results you want. We begin exploring your Group Culture and individuals’ unique chemistry in working together.
It is also rooted in the fact that if people do not know where you are going, they will work until something they do gets recognized and rewarded as “right.” What a waste of time and resources! It is like playing darts wearing a blindfold!
We are unique as we collaboratively work with leaders and teams to define priorities and then create implementation plans of who will do what by when and why. Profiles, surveys or other tools may be implemented to gain more clarity around what is going on as the current state.
Employee Engagement is important to define but we also embrace surveys that go beyond engagement and explore the many intricacies of your organizational culture. You are encouraged to plan the plan based on well-defined business needs.
Step Three – Implement Solutions
We support you as you implement appropriate solutions to bridge the gap between current obstacles and needed results.
This could be with persons, processes or work teams. Maybe it involves challenges amongst the leaders, managers, supervisors, tenured staff, or entry level employees? Perhaps you have issues with your workforce design or talent management?
Your culture is comprised of the personnel who must support organizational values and beliefs. Everyone must understand the stake they have in the business direction. In general, people will not change unless there is a compelling reason to do so. Do they feel the sense of urgency? Are people empowered to act on getting the business needs accomplished? Do you get collective results or are your employees working in silos?
Step Three is guiding you as you execute the plan and helping you along the way. This is where most organizational transformation efforts fail. The strategic plan is really pretty but so many obstacles can block the implementation.
