Transforming your systems and ways of working to supercharge impact.

People & Systems Consulting

“Every system is perfectly designed to get the results it gets.”
– W. Edward Deming

Organisations are a powerful interplay of people and systems. At Performance Frontiers, we believe that uplifting both these aspects of our organisations is critical to reaching our potential.

Our People & Systems Consulting work complements our focus on strategy, leadership, and organisational development to deliver what is needed to transform your systems and ways of working – so you can supercharge your impact.

Our highly trained experts, leveraging extensive experience at some of the largest organisations in Australia and internationally, can partner with you to deliver everything from performance management to diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies. 

Our Approach

Organisations are highly interconnected, and the People journey is no exception to that. Our approach is always to start with purpose – our strategic vision – and construct everything else on this foundation. From our strategy flows the entire employee experience journey.

We work with clients end-to-end on this journey as well as on shorter interventions at particular stages. From attracting staff with a compelling employee value proposition through performance achievement and reward and recognition frameworks to learning from exiting staff, we need the right processes in place at the right time, which are aligned to our strategic goals and deliver the best outcome for people and the organisation.  

Our Expertise

We work with our clients on their full range of organisational and people needs, including: 

Creating Flourishing Cultures

Culture makes or breaks organisations. It is the lifeblood in which we are all immersed. No matter the dimension of organisational life – social, performance, ways of working – it is all influenced by our culture. We are here to walk with you, wherever you are on your culture journey. We design and administer cultural surveys that will find out what’s working – and what isn’t. We then work with you to co-create cultural transformation pathways to uplift your ways of being as a collective. 

Organisational Design That Enables

Once upon a time, businesses followed very rigid structures. The way we design our organisations now is only as limited as our imaginations. We bring to bear the latest research and cutting-edge theories to support you in building your organisation in a way that enables your people to achieve their best. We can consult with you on everything from structure reviews, through to change management, and people impact. 

Modelling Capabilities and Maximising Performance

Supporting people to reach their potential is our greatest passion. We work with you to model and identify the key capabilities for your roles and design a system which supports people to reach and exceed those capabilities through excellence in performance. This work might encompass everything from building balanced scorecards and KPIs through performance management and your remuneration and rewards framework.  

Industry-Leading Employee Value Propositions

The war for talent is – in many ways – never really over. Finding what makes your organisation valuable for employees and articulating that value proposition in a compelling way is vital to finding and retaining the talent you need. We can help you to evaluate your rewards and incentive programs against the market and deliver on something truly unique for your people. 

Real Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Building organisations that live diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is one of the most pressing needs of our time. But what does that look like for your organisation in the here and now? Our experts in the field can help you to design a DEI strategy, based on best practice and what actually works, and then make it a reality – so that everyone in your organisation is being heard, valued, and uplifted. 

In addition to the above, we consult on: 

  • People and Culture Function Effectiveness 
  • Talent Management 
  • Succession Planning 
  • Engagement Surveys and Employee Wellbeing 
  • Marketing and Communications Strategies 
  • Change Management 
  • Human Centred Design Capabilities
