One of the common mantras in organizations of all sizes, sectors and stripes is
“Our people are our most important asset”.
The organization’s investment in its “human” resources is typically its most significant budget item. At Markef, our goal is to assist our clients to translate the strategic agenda, however defined, into effective human performance that leads to overall organizational success.
Our consultants understand the importance of the client consultant “partnership” as the construct to create successful HR outcomes from the strategic to the systemic to the individual. From supporting and facilitating the development of the strategic direction and the governance model (mission, vision, values, culture, priorities, policies, procedures, and all of the pieces that create the overall template for action), through helping to create HR systems (organization design, job evaluation and classification, compensation, performance planning and coaching, evaluation and assessment, employee development, and the rest of the HR “programs” that position the HR function as a strategic and operational asset within the organization), to actual implementation (compensation and related surveys, change management, training, assessment, Board and Council development, and other “hands-on” support that may be required), Markef is there to help.
Markef Consultancy approach is based on client need and context, not “off-the-shelf” or packaged solutions. We know that one-size does not fit all; therefore, our focus is on understanding the issue, the context and the requirement, and deploying our experience and specializations with our clients to craft the “right” response for each client. We also know that the “human” resources within the organization are the source of significant intellectual capital; they have perspectives, feelings, talents and a wealth of knowledge that, if channeled effectively, can add considerable value to the organization’s success. Our collaborative and facilitative approach is designed to optimize employee understanding, acceptance and support for engagement outcomes.
