Our services are delivered through these five specialist areas.

We are the market leaders in workplace investigations.

Complex investigations

Often sensitive, the types of investigations we specialise in include disciplinaries, grievances, bullying and harassment and whistleblowing.

Our thorough and careful approach identifies the root causes and provides a clear path towards resolution.

We enable progressive and supportive cultures that bring out the best in people.

Culture Reviews

We are experts in assessing and understanding workplace cultures and implementing positive change.

Our Culture Reviews begin with an in-depth evaluation of the situation, usually by interviews, listening groups and surveys, which we use to advise areas of concern and appropriate remedial action.

Our approach is underpinned by the belief that compassion and inclusivity are vital to a positive organisational culture.

We manage and deliver change projects impacting your employees.

We adopt a holistic approach to change projects, applying a combination of commercial rigour and compassion to deliver successful outcomes on time and on budget whilst minimising the impact on people.

We resolve early stage conflict and dysfunctional relationships in the workplace.

Conflict Resolution and Mediation

Our team of trained mediators and resolution experts have a track record of resolving the most complex and entrenched disputes between individuals and within teams.

We identify barriers to constructive working relationships, and implement actions or interventions that restore harmony and productivity.

We ensure you meet your regulatory obligations.

CQC and Safeguarding

We can also review and advise on your safeguarding frameworks and policies, assist with any safeguarding investigations, and lead high level training that may be required.

A few words from our clients.
