Informed insights for your talent strategy

Innovation and growth are paramount to the success of your organization, but it’s your people that drive that success. That’s why best-in-class organizations go to great lengths to ensure their talent aligns with their strategy — but this can be much more difficult than it sounds. That’s where we come in.

Whether you’re ready for large-scale leadership changes, going through a merger or acquisition, questioning your board’s effectiveness, or simply wanting to improve an already-stellar culture, we can help. For more than 60 years, we’ve helped organizations optimize performance by proactively addressing the human side of the business. We’ll help you hire the right people, improve your organization’s effectiveness, and create a succession strategy that identifies and develops your next generation of leaders. No matter your talent needs, we have a collaborative consulting model that draws on best practices that can be customized to meet your specific needs.

  • IT: Can your IT infrastructure support you through COVID-19 disruption?

    A weak IT infrastructure can hinder your COVID-19 crisis navigation. Your technology should be robust enough to support remote work when needed, smart enough to support your decision-making, and secure enough to protect you from cybercrime. You’ll also need the right team to keep your technology running smoothly. Take our assessment to evaluate your IT strength and find out where you need to devote additional resources.

Does your staff know how to answer COVID-19-related business questions? How are you positioned compared to the competition? Take the assessment to gauge your ability to continue successful operations amid the disruption.

We don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk

At Plante Moran, we have a saying: “We don’t do the things we do to win awards; we win awards because of what we do.” We’re honored to have been recognized for our culture and workplace excellence by many prestigious organizations. We know what works, and what doesn’t, and we’ll apply that knowledge to your organization.

Our team includes psychologists with trained expertise to provide the insights into human behavior that you need to make changes. While we use tools and methodologies, we also know no two organizations are alike. That’s why we take a personal approach to each engagement and will be on site, working collaboratively with your human resources and management teams. Stan Hannah, our talent and organizational development leader says, “Our goal is to understand what makes your organization tick and identify your opportunities for cultural improvement. We aim to help — not hinder — your culture. That’s why collaboration is so important to us. Improvements, big or small, can’t be made unless everyone is on board.”
