Open Brackets focuses on the following specialty areas:

Agile performance management:

We work with you to co-create agile performance management practices comprising clear performance expectations, ongoing feedback, and practical coaching, not cumbersome process and forms. We also support you in developing the capability of your leaders and team members to excel in a performance-based culture where feedback and development is at the centre of day to day work.

Change management:

We partner with you to develop an overarching change strategy and detailed change plans, and work as part of your team to deliver on the plans and help ensure successful delivery of your project. We specialise in organisational change due to a merger and acquisition, new system implementation, new business strategy implementation or culture change.

Talent attraction:

We utilise a data and research driven methodology to develop a talent attraction strategy that helps position your organisation to attract and recruit the top talent needed to deliver on your business strategy. This includes developing a unique and compelling Employee Value Proposition (EVP) and detailed plan for executing that talent attraction strategy which may include elements such as Day in the Life videos, social media activity, careers website content and developing strategic partnerships.

Organisation design:

For a new business strategy to be successful an organisation needs to be designed in a way that facilitates its delivery. We lead organisations through the design using a process that is research based, collaborative and transparent, ensuring alignment of your operating model, leadership, systems, structures and culture with your strategy. We support the implementation of your organisation design to ensure that it sticks and delivers value.

Team alignment:

High performing teams are critical to the success of organisations and their ability to attract and retain top talent.  Our proven methods help you set up a new team for success or we can review an existing team and work in partnership with the team and its leaders to take its performance to a high level.  Such a program may include aspects such as team vision and purpose, clear roles and accountabilities, team trademark and behaviours, ways of working together and leadership effectiveness.


The people side of HR tech:

HR Tech is increasingly being utilised in people’s day to day work. Whether it is online performance management systems or social collaboration tools – organisations need to get the people side right in order to realise the benefits.
