I’m Matt Simkin and what I like to do is to help organisations through times of change. I’m a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and, even more importantly, an experienced business manager.
Working in HR, we often hear that “people are our most important asset” but how often do we really see that put into action? I passionately believe that the most important part of any organisation is its people and that they are the key to making a business work.
However, I also believe that good intentions alone are not enough and that with any change process, be it a merger, restructure, moving office, laying people off, supporting your top flyers, increasing team performance, bringing in a new system or process or developing your people, it is vital to take account of the likely impact of change on your people.
Unlike many change management and HR consultants, I’m not driven by process nor am I peddling a one-size-fits-all model that I’ll implement and then walk away. I work by gaining a clear understanding of both your business and your needs so that I can design and implement processes and systems that work in practice and that will keep on working long after I’ve gone.
My methodology is simple: I work with you to think through the issues, create the right solutions, and make sure that – together – we do the right thing for your people.
