Productivity: it's on our agenda.
Is it on yours?

The slowdown in measured economic productivity growth has been the subject of considerable recent debate. After at least a decade-long hiatus, productivity has found its way back in the New Zealand economic vernacular, and it’s now permeating governments’ agendas as well as the boardrooms of corporate New Zealand.

Despite this, only a small percentage of organisations measure and report on the productivity levels of their workers. This means the majority of New Zealand organisations do not have the insights they need to implement sustainable and effective measures to boost productivity.

We realise that New Zealand is crying out for revolutionary change that moves organisations into a new era of productivity performance, that’s why we can help organisations in both the public and private sectors become more effective, more integrated and bold in raising their productivity and global competitiveness.

We can assist you with:

  • Effective deployment of technology and capital equipment

    The connection between technology and productivity is obvious – it is an enabler that must be fully embraced to get an edge on your competition.

    Technology has a significant influence on a business and it has evolved so quickly that many IT functions are still struggling with how to marry their technical expertise with a new business perspective.

    That is why we help you align your IT operations to your overall business strategy - improving efficiency and assisting you measure and demonstrate ongoing value. Our professionals provide insights into organisational culture and help align technology with people and processes. They advise on designing and improving your IT function and operations to achieve strategic objectives, working with top management on this high-priority issue.

  • Developing and utilising human capital

    Attracting, utilising and retaining the right people is a key driver for long term growth and a major contributor in achieving productivity.

    Forward-thinking organisations use innovative human resources management approaches to gain a competitive advantage against their competition, and create a strong platform for growth.

    Our people and organisation professionals are skilled at measuring and monitoring staff performance, managing talent, planning succession, structuring organisations and defining roles and responsibilities. They draw on their knowledge of market leading practice to help with human resource management. Our teams focus on helping you to mobilise your employees to achieve your organisation’s potential and create a strong employer brand.

  • Embedding a bold and audacious innovation agenda

    Innovation is a key driver of productivity growth and competitiveness of companies around the globe.

    To be innovative you have to take risks. Today’s leading organisations need to cultivate a culture of ‘intrepreneurship’ by empowering employees to be innovative and to take risks to create value, generate ideas and drive the company forward.
