Clients tell us that we stand out when compared to other providers of performance management software due to our unique suite of Actus Consultancy and Training Services. These can be used as wrap-around consultancy and training to those deploying Actus Software or as independent expertise. Actus Consultancy supports clients every step of the way whether they are embarking on a large scale cultural transformation project, developing an O.D. Strategy or simply looking to move their existing appraisal process online. Actus training can be provided as ‘off the shelf’ courses directly to line managers or through bespoke design and roll out as part of a ‘train the trainer’ programme.

Our CEO, Lucinda Carney has a passion for ‘making a difference’ with clients and where possible,  she personally supports those who want Board Facilitation or Change Consultancy. Obviously, her availability is limited, which is why she also works with a host of experienced associates and hosts the popular weekly HR Uprising Podcast. Through this, she is able to provide support and insights to the wider community of people professionals which is supported by an aligned LinkedIn community group. that you are welcome to join!

New for 2020  we are launching two new development options aimed at people professionals – How to be a Change Superhero” virtual training sessions and “Virtual Management Training”. These were developed in line with feedback from the HR Uprising community.

Lucinda has recently written a book called ‘How to be a Change Superhero’ which is available now. In addition, you can download free related resources from the Change Toolkit here. In the meantime make sure you check out our free HR and management related downloadable tools and resources or sign up for one of our monthly webinars on a range of relevant topics.

Actus Consultancy Services

Our most requested consultancy offerings are also outlined below but we do understand that every client’s needs are different so please feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss your specific challenge.

Developing the business case for change

Helping you to identify the business benefits of any system or culture change and determining a realistic business plan with tangible Return on Investment metrics that will convince stakeholders of the potential value. Making you a highly credible part of the #HRUprising

Organisational Development Strategy

Members of the #HRUprising need to have a credible vision and strategy that is aligned with the needs of the business. Sometimes this is difficult to do ourselves so this session includes a half day diagnostic and results in a ‘Strategy on a Page’ outcome that will help you clearly communicate your vision to the business and gain buy-in.

Establishing Board Vision and Goals

It is remarkable how often we work with clients who want everyone to have clear goals and objectives, yet they haven’t set or agreed on any at the top. This is by far and away our most frequently requested pro bono session. It requires the top team to get around the table for at least 4 hours with flip charts, Post-it notes and a highly flexible #HRUprising facilitator. The resulting clarity and focus benefit the whole organisation, top-down.

Business Psychology Services

To be effective members of the #HRUprising we need to understand the wants, needs and motivations of our internal clients. We offer a range of Evidence-based business psychology services that can support you with this. These range from Competency or 360 questionnaire development; personality diagnostics and conflict resolution to Assessment for development services and much more.

Business Healthcheck

Effective members of the #HRUprising need to understand the strengths and development requirements of their organisations in order to prioritise areas for change and investment. The Business Healthcheck provides personalised analysis and consultancy that will give clarity about ‘As is’ and enable you to measure progress towards the ‘To be’. The outputs of the Healthcheck are written up in a report with specific guidance and recommendations for next steps.

Appraisal process re-design

Of course we help with this! Most organisations invest in an online appraisal system in order to deliver some kind of results. It could be to encourage greater performance, more meaningful conversations or more focus on behaviours. Our #HRUprising engagement consultants help every Actus client to align and configure Actus to match your cultural and strategic goals. We understand that these may evolve over time so are happy to work with your internal #HRChangeAgent to tweak along the way.

Single sign on and active directory integration

OK let’s be honest this isn’t traditional #HRUprising territory – we are more people change than systems change, however, we recognise that making systems quick and easy to access can be a really important way of removing resistance to change. Our technical development team are masters in ensuring the technology is as easy to access as possible.

Leadership Coaching

To be a member of the #HRUprising we need to be able to work with and through other change leaders to deliver lasting results. Leadership Coaching can be an invaluable way of ensuring that those in key roles have the self-awareness and personal skills to lead change and get the best out of their team.

“Become an HR Change Agent and join the HR Uprising to inspire, engage and accelerate positive change”. Lucinda Carney, Business Psychologist.
