IT'S A HR MOVEMENT
Did you know that over 216,000 people worked remotely last year in Ireland, 77% of these people reported they were more productive and 33% accomplished more in less time?
Did you also know that 68% of millennial's would consider an employer more if they offered remote work and these millennial's are now the largest generation in our workforce today.
Remote work is a skill that is in demand but needs a different type of management from what we traditionally know it to be. It is a skill that suits some and not others. Are you ready for the remote future that fast approaches? Have you got your people and business strategy aligned?
What We Do
We help business prepare for the remote future with more confidence and less fear.
We educate managers and employees on what is needed, why and how to do it. Companies discover how to implement a remote work strategy, develop a remote work policy and align the business and people in it to a remote future.
We enable companies to recruit remote skills and build out hybrid or fully remote teams to realize the full profit potential of their business in a tightening talent pool and flexible work future.

The Strengths Profile
A strength isn’t simply something you are good at or capable of doing well, it also gives you energy when you are performing.
Scientific based data from the 'Strengths Profile' assessment is used to discover how to leverage strengths and weakness better and align people better to their work, Individual, teams and business use it to get 360 vision of themselves to increase self awareness, make better choices and more informed decisions in their work.
The holistic quadrant profile measures 60 different strengths based on performance, use and energy.
Participants walk away with new awareness on their energizers and drainers at work, how to use weaknesses less and strengths more to self-lead with more success.
Using the above model of development, participants are taken through a 1.5 hour debrief coaching session to make the data meaningful and help participants understand what they need to do more and less of to achieve more success and master their self-awareness.
