A consultation led project can be seen as a double-edged sword. On one hand, it raises the profile of the HR function but on the other it brings the obvious pressure of dealing with people change on top of delivering business as usual.


At Connor, we're experienced at helping business and HR leaders to manage consultation led projects - either leading them through change or providing additional HR capacity and expertise to bolster an in-house HR team. Organisations are unique and so are their people, but there are some principles that can be applied in every case. Paying close attention to these means you have the best chance of delivering successful change projects and leading your organisation into a new world.
