What’s your point? Because your employees need to know.
Whether you’re facing aggressive growth targets, turning the page on a bad year, repositioning your team to meet emerging market realities, merging with something new, divesting of something old, downsizing, launching a new brand or culture, changing processes or simply seeking better engagement results, you need your people to rally to your cause. They can’t if they don’t understand what you want and why you want it.
First, you have to make your point. Then, together, you can make it happen. Pivot can help.
We specialize in employee communication, corporate culture development and change integration that go beyond the traditional platitudes of “our employees are our greatest asset;” “culture is king;” and “change is constant.”
Because platitudes don’t work; making it matter does.
We’ve helped organizations – large and small, publically traded and privately held – clarify their needs and attach real meaning to their calls to action, to appeal to and energize their employees to achieve real, sustainable results. The secret is to make it meaningful. Business is business, but good business is personal. And good business is sustainable. We help you make it, long term.
From developing your communication strategy, to creating the support materials – key messaging, creative, templates, etc. – to executing the plan: we help you make your point, and make it matter.
From developing a cultural strategy, to facilitating purpose and values conversations that lead to more than just snazzy signage, to co-creating community investment programs that truly engage your team: we help you ignite your own cultural revolution.
From helping you map the change, to building the strategy, to ensuring your people have what it takes to weather the storm: we help you embed change agility into your business. Because it never only happens once.
First, we help you identify your pivot point – the core belief or purpose of your organization that should guide all your decisions. Our objective is to understand:
This step is crucial to help us help you crystallize exactly what it is you’re trying to achieve, and why. Otherwise, what’s the point? If you can’t articulate it, your people can’t join the charge.
So let’s create the story for them.
Then we work with stakeholders throughout your organization to develop a strategy to excite your team about the new initiative or direction, and get them involved and engaged. When they understand the what and why of what you’re proposing, your team will be better equipped to navigate it and embrace it.
Next we execute the plan in full or in part, depending on your needs. We can do it all, or we can work with your team to execute the plan thoughtfully and successfully in-house. Whatever option you choose, we’ll get your organization pointed and moving in the right direction.
Finally, we develop a sustainment plan to course correct where necessary, build momentum and measure your success.
Pivot is a collection of like-minded professionals committed to making your organization a place your employees want to be, not just where they’ll hang out until they win the lottery or something slightly better comes along. We are:
