Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Change Management and Organizational Development
When you think "organizational development and OHS"
, think continuous improvement, hazard identification and control, processes and goals that will result in the reduction of injuries and illnesses. Get it right - your organization grows and prospers because you attract and retain quality staff. Get it wrong - the downward spiral begins: qualified and experience staffs leave, you lose contracts based on your safety record and your corporate reputation slides. That is why leading executives devote time, energy and money to “getting it right”.
Organization development and change management needs vary across associations, corporations, not-for-profits and government. No one process is right for all situations and entities. Our consultants have the experience to develop cost-effective, custom solutions for each client. We have the flexibility to provide full service or, if you prefer, we can "shadow consult" behind the scenes to your existing internal resources. Our consultants are proud of their ability to deliver practical, real-world solutions.
