What great looks like
Our trademarked consultative process WGLL™ helps establish the benchmark for your talent.

It defines the traits and behaviours specific to your business context that will yield high performance on an individual and organisational level. It is the foundation upon which we build an effective, sustainable talent strategy to create positive business impact for you.

The Five Box Model
An unbiased, uniquely data-led approach.

Our analytical model maps the traits and behaviours of the high performance you need across five key areas, validated against internal and external benchmark data. This process enables us to activate organisational performance by acknowledging rather than ignoring the complexity of people and behaviours in the workplace.

Our ethos
We are passionate about you and your business
We want to understand the specific challenges and problems that you face, and the context you face them in so we can help you overcome them. We believe that everybody should have the opportunity to be brilliant at work.
We are intelligent about talent
Technology has a role to play in talent solutions, but it shouldn’t define the whole offering. It’s human insight that delivers the context you need. We care about making sure you have what you need to create success.
We are collaborative
Sharing knowledge and working together achieves great results. We pride ourselves on creating strong interpersonal alliances with business leaders, HR and talent teams in order to help you realise your business ambitions.
We are about people not politics
We work cross-company, for the benefit of all. One of the first steps in partnering with us is establishing a shared thought process to ensure that we engage with every level of the workforce.
