For the last 15 years I’ve been accompanying organizations to maximize performance, retention and engagement (earlier described as job satisfaction) by implementing strategies specifically design for Human Resources projects for the recruitment & selection team, learning & development team or the employee relations team. Today we are experiencing a shift in the workforce where the organization now think about the reasons why candidates/employees want to work with them versus they need to work with them. This mindset change has impacted the role of “Human Resources to Human Transformation” as Jacob Morgan explains in his employee experience research.

The new workforce pays attention on how the company makes them feel. Research demonstrate clearly the reasons an employee leaves a company is related to how they felt with the company and the boss. Human Transformation is all about the employee experiential journey including the technology needed to be successful, the working space that defines management styles and the company culture.

The Art of Matchmaking is a holistic, integrated 7-steps signature process where the relationship between the candidate, later employee and the company strengthens as they get to know each other, blend to a common language, learn and grow together from shared lessons and shine as a recognized celebrity brand in the outer world. The 7-steps demonstrate how we can transform by enriching the entire employee experience delivering an end-to-end [attraction – to – retirement] solutions to inspire employees with a purposeful, meaningful & productive work, ignite their potential and impact engagement, happiness and productivity at your organization. Every step of the journey is supported with the matchmaking method using assessments for employee self-awareness to provide learning and development resources for employee self-realization.
