Impact & Expertise

People & Organization

At BCG we believe that people, working together collaboratively, form the basis of competitive advantage in any organization. With that in mind, we strive to improve employee engagement and company performance in all our work with clients. By focusing on both, companies can achieve real change and sustainable advantage over competitors.

 

BCG’s People & Organization practice helps clients address six main challenges:

  • Creating an organization design that maximizes efficiency, management effectiveness, cooperation, and employee commitment

  • Designing a role of the center that is both lean and active and that enables the organization to create value

  • Focusing on human resources by hiring the right talent, ensuring that employees are performing the proper activities to the best of their abilities, helping them develop the appropriate skills and capabilities, connecting them with one another, and attaining excellence in the Human Resources function

  • Raising performance by working explicitly on behavior and culture in ways that are both measurable and supportive of strategic goals

  • Identifying, developing and deploying highly skilled and adaptive leaders prepared to successfully navigate the changing requirements of 21st century leadership and talent, supported by robust metrics, systems and development programs to generate the bench strength required for long-term success and achievement of strategic goals

  • Rigorously instilling change-management capabilities to ensure that the full benefits of any change program are realized through six key actions: creating the change agenda, mobilizing the organization, hard-wiring the organization for change, managing for results, communicating strategically and consistently, and sustaining and reinventing change as necessary
