Build: Organizational Development

"The mission of the HR leader is evolving from that of "chief talent executive” to "chief employee experience officer.” HR is being asked to simplify its processes, help employees manage the flood of information at work, and build a culture of collaboration, empowerment, and innovation. This means that HR is redesigning almost everything it does—from recruiting to performance management to on-boarding to rewards systems.”

- Global Human Capital Trends 2016: "The New Organization: Different by Design” – Deloitte 

Organizations are increasingly complex and fast-paced. Heightened expectations of individual employees and of teams to achieve greater results with fewer resources has never been so important to organizations looking to create a competitive advantage over their competition. Consequently, developing employees and the systems in which they work is essential for ongoing success within organizations.

Sartor & Associates works with organizations – with their leaders and teams to develop human capital, to strengthen performance and productivity and to close gaps that inhibit sustainable change. Working with organizations in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, Sartor & Associates offer customized solutions that build the capacity of organizations. Our consulting team has extensive industry experience and an in-depth understanding of the conditions that create meaningful change and lead to impactful organizations.

As will be evident, our team has a strong background in organizational psychology, with an emphasis on leadership development. Combined, we have developed a multitude of leadership development initiatives, have created authentic learning assessments (Assessment Centre methodology) and have in-depth backgrounds in psychometric assessments. We routinely speak at conferences and teach professionals in corporate settings and graduate students in colleges and universities and are consistently reviewed at top levels in all related abilities. Having held senior leadership positions, our team members are highly adept at recruiting and coaching individuals. We have developed effective program design and pedagogical skills and both understand the learning process and apply rich assessment practices. Our team is highly collaborative and works closely with individuals and teams within organizations to achieve superior and sustainable results. 

Assessment Centre

An organization’s greatest asset is its people. But, how do company’s ensure that prospective employee’s will possess the required knowledge, skills and behaviours to be effective? How will organizations know whether prospective and existing employees offer added value by way of leadership abilities?

Our team has developed a robust methodology for screening and advancing candidates through a process that evaluates:

  • Technical competencies
  • IQ intelligence
  • EQ intelligence
  • Problem-Solving skills
  • Leadership skills

We utilize an in-depth process of interactive candidate processes when assessing individuals. These include:

  • Resume review
  • Behavioural interview
  • Psychometric assessment 
  • Simulations
S&A’s Assessment Centre is fully customized for client organizations and even for each position for which recruitment or future development of existing employees is being considered. 

Advanced Leadership Simulation

The most effective forms of learning occurs when it is contextualized. Our team of experts in teaching and leadership customize learning experiences for teams within organizations. Recent projects have developed the following skills and aptitudes:

  • Innovation and creative thinking
  • Managing teams
  • In-depth negotiation 
  • Management vs. Leadership 
  • Negotiation skills
  • Problem-Solving
Our Advanced Leadership Simulations are well-suited for senior management and technical teams as well as newly initiated expert teams. 

Strategic Planning and Board Governance

Developing effective strategic plans begin with asking the right questions and utilizing data that will support growth.  Our approach to the facilitation of strategic planning is aligned with maximizing short and long-term achievements and takes into consideration all aspects of the business and industry landscape. 

Customer Service

Customer satisfaction was once recognized as a benchmark for an organization’s success. In recent years, the importance of a heightened standard of customer loyalty has proven more valuable. In one-way or another every organization is in the customer service business. 

Our team works with organizations to better understand strengths and gaps in customer service delivery and then work with stakeholders to design and implement enhanced practices to create service quality.
