What organizations are realizing more and more is that their likelihood of sustained success is most dependent on learning to get the maximum out of their employees. Such a realization has had a significant impact on the practice of human resources management (HRM). Human resources management is the term increasingly used to refer to the philosophy, policies, procedures, and practices related to the management of an organization’s employees. A typical organisation spends a significant portion of its revenues on its employees, yet few organisations evaluate and attempt to establish a link between overall business strategy and personnel strategy. How can an effective link between the two be established? We can assist you in answering this question by conducting an Audit of your internal Human Resource Management systems, procedures and processes in order to identify key pitfalls and deficiencies and help you with devising effective strategies to overcome them.
INNOVA helps organisations go through process commonly known as change management. Too often corporate boards of directors fear change management because they fear shaking things up, which might make things worse. However when it is time for a change; change management is necessary and often it will be for the better.

If you force change on people normally problems arise. Change must be realistic, achievable and measurable. These aspects are especially relevant to managing personal change. Before starting organizational change, ask yourself: What do we want to achieve with this change, why, and how will we know that the change has been achieved? Who is affected by this change, and how will they react to it? How much of this change can we achieve ourselves, and what parts of the change do we need help with? The following outlines different scenarios, namely what can happen when change is and is not managed effectively:
Organisations that are facing difficulties need to adapt and transform themselves. The same is the case with most successful companies and institutions as greatness is a trademark of only those who are capable of reinventing themselves. All great companies and institutions, at least periodically, look for ways to fundamentally enhance themselves. Often the search requires addressing the following three elements:
Tackling all three elements is, obviously, a challenge, but it is a challenge that more and more managers feel the need to confront. Our view is that the challenge can be addressed successfully as most organisations face common difficulties which, with the right level of effort and commitment, can be addressed effectively. By collaborating with you we can address the causes of these common difficulties in order to enable you to improve your performance and perpetuate success.
