Targeted cultural and organizational development boosts your company's positioning and competitiveness.

Success in business requires not only strategies and processes, but also a values-based culture that everyone within the organization lives by. The demands placed on companies have dramatically changed in recent years. Global trends like digitization, industry 4.0, demographic shifts and growing acceptance of topics like sustainability, flexibilization of work models and personal fulfillment in the workplace all pose major challenges for companies. Tackling these issues is no easy task, but it must be done. We are here to help holistically develop your company culture and integrate ways of working that meet today's challenges. We also help you ensure that these changes are sustainably embedded in your company's culture going forward.

Cultural Transformation

Culture eats strategy for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Your goal is clear, your strategy is right, your processes are in place, yet things still aren’t going according to plan? The missing ingredient is culture. Any situation in which people work together and want to achieve top performances requires a unifying culture that everyone helps to maintain. We specialize in developing psychological transformations, and we are at your side to holistically guide you on your journey towards a values-based culture of high-performance.

If you have ever been involved in an organizational change process, you have probably witnessed some of the many ways in which people (un)consciously try to sabotage or slow down the process. That's because people are more likely to follow their hearts than they are to follow the plan.

Successful companies know this. That is why they devote as much time and effort to sustainably shaping their culture as they do on transactional processes and strategies. A key to success is to seek professional assistance to make sure the business side of your transformation process is in step with the cultural side.

We support you in holistically developing your company culture. For us, solid cultural development starts with developing individuals. This results in higher-quality within teams and beyond the management level. The ultimate effect is purposeful, sustainable success for the company as a whole. We help you to achieve greater fulfillment on the individual level. Meanwhile, on the business level, you achieve lasting success.

Organizational Design

“For every minute spent in organizing, an hour is earned,” to quote Benjamin Franklin, speaking from another era in time. It has never been more important to invest in a well-organized design for your company. Does your current organizational design optimally support you in achieving your strategy and goals? Does it match your concept of leadership, culture and teamwork and help facilitate these? We offer full support in aligning your organizational form, structures and processes with your vision and concept of leadership.

External developments (new business models, technological change, political concerns or trade conflicts) and internal changes (new forms of teamwork, transformations) call for new models and cultures of leadership. To ensure this has the desired effect, it is crucial for existing processes and forms of organization to be scrutinized, adapted and, in some cases, completely overhauled.

We can help you in the process of expanding beyond traditional models of working and adding new, team-based, agile forms of work to your organization. You can also count on us when developing new governance models to support a broader delegation of duties, or to help define the roles and responsibilities within your executive board.

Based on a newly developed, enhanced understanding of leadership, we help put your new form of organization into practice. We determine the need for organizational change, identify leverage points for putting lasting change into place and develop options for flexible new forms of organization. In our view, sustainable, comprehensive organizational development rises and falls on the culture of leadership that exists within the company. This is a vital tool during periods of (evolutionary) development within the organization.

Embedding Processes (HR)

Making change stick! Centralized leadership processes can only be effective if they are successfully embedded within the organization. Changes in behavior are often defined, trained and incentivized without ever being sustainably embedded into centralized leadership processes. With the right systematic approach, employees will not only return from change workshops feeling motivated, but will also apply the new ways of behavior into their day-to-day work. Manres has the expertise that it takes to make a lasting impact on your employees.

Successful change processes are always accompanied by a change in awareness and behavior. The challenge for organizations is how to systematically embed these changes. Without this, important initiatives, good intentions and strong plans simply turn into futile exercises that soon run out of steam. That is why it is important to embed important behavioral changes into centralized leadership and work processes.

HR plays a pivotal role in this. The key is to analyze leadership processes to determine where and how they help achieve the kind of culture envisioned by the transformation process (for example, recruitment, performance, management) and to promote these (for example, through talent management and succession planning). 

The methodological basis for this process is our ‘Moments that Matter’ approach. We help you to identify moments within employees’ daily processes that add value, and use these as reference points and design features for shaping the future culture of your organization.
