People and Organisation

Getting the best from people at every level when there is constant change is the key to sustainable competitive advantage. Solid strategies, processes and technology alone do not deliver results.

People Strategy

As we help clients solve their most critical business issues through organisational transformation, improving the performance of their workforce, developing and moving talent around the world, and managing their human capital risks.

The way organisations approach business strategy is changing from reactive deterministic approaches to proactive directional strategies that build on the capability within the organisation. This shift requires a rethinking of people strategies to deliver on strategic intent – and improved alignment of the internal capabilities and people infrastructure to achieve competitive advantage and deliver on the challenges that the next decade will bring.

We help clients make the connection between their business strategy and the people activities needed to deliver it, ensuring agility to account for business need now and in the future through a framework that maps strategy into all of the aspects of the employee lifecycle.

Change Management

Major forces and trends are underway that will dramatically impact how workforces need to respond and adapt to achieve success. With the right change management interventions and processes clients can achieve their vision and stay agile in an ever changing world.

75% of change initiatives fail to fulfil their promise. However with projects accompanied by systematic change management processes we see a 31% increase in rate of success.  83% of companies with a systematic change management approach are able to achieve their set goals. Companies without change management units only have a rate of 39%.

HR Function and Technology

After a period of cost cutting, hiring freezes and budget constraints, HR leaders are being challenged to mobilise and manage talent to help businesses grow. Fears that talent management shortfalls will constrain growth mean that organisations are looking to refocus efforts and investments on those employees who will be most valuable to their businesses in light of their growth ambitions. 

HR Software as a Service (‘SaaS’) is providing HR leaders with a unique opportunity to rapidly deliver revolutionary change and a renewed strategic focus. Organisations who recognise HR SaaS as the opportunity for transformational change are creating sustainable economic value in record time and shaping the future of the industry now. 


People analytics and insights

The power of data-led insight is transforming how organisations across all industries can make better informed decisions about harnessing the power of their people – spanning strategic workforce planning, productivity, talent management, employee engagement and retention, performance management, agility and mobility. 

We are a numbers organisation: everything we do at PwC is underpinned by analytics and data driven insight. In People and Organisation we can really differentiate our multi-competency transformation programmes through embedding analytics and insights into our 15 capabilities.
