CSR, Health & Wellbeing, Social Sustainability Consulting
‘Doing good, by doing well’, ‘Profit with Purpose’, ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’, ‘Corporate Citizenship’ – frankly, whatever you want to call it, is OK with us! (Even we struggled to find a single term to name what we do!) Fundamentally, we know exactly what you mean…you want to move beyond simply financial returns, beyond the marketing facade, and meaningfully contribute and create value socially, environmentally, culturally, and economically. We get it.
We love to work with clients who want to break from the pack, do things differently, and want to collaborate and create with us to adapt, enhance, or innovate in this space. This is just an example list of areas we’ve worked on to give you an idea. But, don’t let that limit you. We’re always up for a challenge, and if you want a different type of thinking with new perspectives, then we’re your people.
Strategy & Business Planning
All too often we see that while significant importance is placed on the social responsibility of a business, that the allocation of resources to deliver on those promises are mis-matched often leaving these functions over-utilised and under-resourced. Limited capacity often means that priority is given to delivery and reporting, and less to strategic thinking and business planning. We’re experienced in ‘do-more-with-less’, so we can work closely with you to prioritise, effectively create space for strategic planning, and develop operational plans to deliver.
Not for Profit Partnerships
We know the importance that many organisations place on supporting the ‘for purpose’ sector and its’ ambitions for meaningful impact. At times, it can be hard to find and choose the right partners, ones that you can have a truly mutually beneficial relationship with, that can also help you deliver on your social responsibility vision and engage with your people. We deeply understand the needs of both sides of these types of relationships and we work to unlock their full value, find the right fit, and build the capabilities to deliver on the partnership objectives. Visit our Corporate Partnerships area to learn a bit more about how we can help you in your mission to partner for purpose.
Research & Analysis
One of the most challenging aspects for businesses in the areas of social impact is keeping up to date with the evolving social, economic, political, technology, and environmental landscapes, while keeping up with your day job! With the sector becoming more competitive, it is essential that leaders and teams have the right information at their fingertips to make informed decisions. We work closely with you to understand your information and analysis needs to provide timely and critical insights in the most relevant way.
Execution & Delivery
Execution and delivery of the plans you’ve invested so much in are the key to making your vision a reality. Done right, it is the difference between impact and just simply paying lip-service to a cause. Getting the balance right of best practice and discipline, while keeping teams (or the individual in some cases!) agile and motivated, can significantly affect initiative outcomes. Drawing on our decades of experience in a wide array of organisational environments, from startups to global corporations, we can offer advice on approaches that gets that balance right for your business and function.
Health & Wellbeing
Almost every organisation we know has jumped on the train that is health and wellbeing. They know its an employee attraction and retention tool, creates a compelling value proposition, and if done right, can improve and enhance productivity and engagement. Whether you’re just starting out, or you’re well on your way, we can help you evaluate the effectiveness of your approach and help you find the right types of programs and providers for your needs.

Communications & Storytelling
All the hard work in getting your social impact initiatives and partnerships right, can be all for nothing if you’re not letting people know what you’ve done and where you’re heading next. The creative process of storytelling, and the value it offers, is enormous. It can assist in effective communication both internally, to help leaders and teams communicate their mission and strategy, and externally, to share with the community of stakeholders about the valuable work you’re doing, Here’s a little more information on our Communication & Storytelling services.
