“The process of engaging our employees behind the development of our business and cultural development strategy was facilitated excellently by Rialto. The combination of a questionnaire, in-depth one-to-one conversations with employees and focus groups has enabled us to capture both quantitative and qualitative insights, which were hugely valuable in the formation of our new vision, mission and values.
Our Conference in November 2015 provided a fantastic platform to launch the outcome of this process to our entire employee base, signalling a positive change in our business and performance culture. The key was bringing our employees on the journey with us the facilitation and insights from the Rialto team has been pivotal to us achieving this.”
“We recognised that we needed to embark on a transformational journey to achieve our strategic plan and stretch our business goals. We turned to The Rialto Consultancy for their experience, capabilities, change management processes and expert people to coach us along the way. The Rialto Consultancy were fundamental in assisting us in achieving our change plan while keeping focused on meeting our aggressive business and organisational growth”
“The support we have had from Rialto has been outstanding through a difficult period of change for our business. They have helped employees of all ages, some of who have been with GNM for many years, to come to terms with this change and to identify new opportunities. In fact they achieved a 95% success rate of “settling” the employees who were leaving GNM. Without exception, our staff who have used the Rialto service have felt supported and encouraged throughout this unsettling time.”
“Rialto has been influential in driving focus and bringing immense clarity to a very complex external environment. This insight, combined with The GC Index® framework, has lifted the team to the next level – it’s given the team the skills, insight and confidence to step up and look for ways to drive growth.”
