The fundamentals of people strategy—leadership, culture, talent, reskilling, and HR—make companies stronger, more agile, more innovative, and more responsive. BCG’s people strategy consultants help companies elevate their most important asset: their people.
For years, technology has been radically transforming the way work gets done, changing the skills that people need for their jobs, and redefining the jobs that will be needed. But the last few years have catapulted businesses five to ten years into the digital future. Virtually overnight, remote working and automated operations have become the new reality.
To navigate today's complex challenges, it is imperative that companies build for the future: that is, they must intertwine new technologies with human capabilities to power growth, innovation, and, resilience. From the C-suite to the frontlines, and everywhere in between, a successful people strategy stands on three pillars:
We empower and enable clients to design and deliver programs that build their own capabilities across all levels of their organization. Rather than offering traditional, ancillary programs in leadership development and talent development, BCG applies cutting-edge behavioral science to daily operations, enabling people to activate and embed new ways of working while on the job.
BCG is globally recognized for its world-class people operations. We consistently rank among the best places to work—and we apply the same proven people strategies to our clients. We bring deep expertise in engaging employees and creating a diverse, inclusive culture that enables organizations to thrive.
Organizations that maintain a strong sense of purpose—and activate a purpose-driven culture—are more than twice as likely to have above-average shareholder returns.
Using a holistic, human-centric lens, we collaborate with clients on the fundamental pillars of people strategy: leadership and culture, talent and skills, and enabling the HR organization to support business leaders as a strategic partner.
The key to superior business performance is maintaining a tight link among leadership, purpose-driven culture, and value creation. Leadership and culture will continue to be increasingly important given the dramatic increase in digital and virtual work environments.
Our approach, informed by behavioral science, helps leaders create an empowering culture that allows people to do their best work.
The last several years thrusted companies into new digital territory: employees are working and collaborating remotely, consumers are spending more online, and supply chains are more automated. The talent and skills required to achieve your digital ambition are changing as well. More than ever, companies must invest in reskilling, upskilling, and continuous learning programs to close essential skill gaps and secure the capabilities needed to succeed.
We work with companies to unleash new ways of working that not only enable execution but also spur innovation, flexibility, and agility.
HR is morphing into one of the most critical and dynamic functions in today’s digitally focused organizations. Our people management consulting helps clients transition to more agile and digital HR, leverage people analytics, and optimize employee engagement.
