Governance Gurus has brought together some of the leading minds on corporate governance, change management, human resource management and corporate culture. The team are passionate about designing, implementing and embedding governance frameworks, internal controls and policies to improve processes, systems and business performance.

Corporate culture and an organisation’s risk appetite and tolerances set the tone for employees, senior management and the Board. Organisations also need to manage relations with their stakeholders and shareholders. This can be successfully achieved through human resource management, employee engagement and performance measurement and rewards. Change management and business transformation projects can only be successful through sufficient planning, effective communication and by getting buy-in at all levels of the organisation. Most change initiatives fail due to a lack of urgency, reduced momentum or ineffective planning and communication.

 

Whether you need to change your corporate culture or the perceptions of your stakeholders’ with respect of your core values and business objectives, we can add fresh perspectives and ideas to help design and implement sustained cultural business strategy.

Change management is the thread which engages and empowers employees to apply human capital policies and procedures as part of the overall all corporate governance framework. Client centric and engaged employees, who are socially responsible are valuable human capital assets who help an organisation achieve their objectives uniquely.
