Workplace Transformation services

Organizational activism, autonomous teams, and flexible workplaces are just some of the latest employee expectations when it comes to choosing where and how people want to work.

This, along with the increasing frequency and intensity of change, is introducing new power dynamics and relational challenges that most leaders and organizations do not (yet) have the skills, tools, and strategies to navigate.

This is our happy place for creating meaningful change. We can help.

Get started

We're helping design meaningful change

Our work in the people and culture and workplace transformation space spans across the five Ds of meaningful work. The fidelity depends on where specific leaders and teams might be in the journey.

Our approach is human-centred and systems-conscious, and aims to generate shared understanding, identify the most meaningful opportunities, and to create real connection and change.

Workplace transformation

Power in the workplace has shifted and employees everywhere are demanding diversity and inclusion, connection and autonomy, and real change to outdated (harmful) systems and ways of working.

Our workplace transformation work is aimed at helping leaders to assess and evolve the current-state impact of their (usually deeply rooted) systems, leadership, and culture.

  • Revisiting identity (core values, purpose, vision)
  • Closing the intention vs. impact gap
  • Designing new systems and ways of working
  • Deepening cultural connection and relationships
  • Increasing adaptive capacity
  • Creating leaderful teams

Employee journey design

Leaderful workplaces intentionally design and support workplace experiences that align with impact that matters to the people or things they are for.

Our employee journey design work is aimed at helping leaders and teams to assess and evolve workplace experiences, services, and other types of value for team members.

  • Designing a meaningful employee journey (from attracting great people to creating raving alumni, and everything in between)
  • Delivering transformational learning experiences
  • Developing exceptional careers and work-lives
  • Building high-functioning and -performing teams

Workplace culture foundations

The role of human resources and other people and culture teams is in flux as organizational and employee needs continue to evolve.

Our workplace culture foundations work is aimed at helping leaders establish a core set of values-based and aligned experiences, systems, processes, and tools (a harmonization of the transactional and relational needs).

  • Workplace team design (purpose, roles, desired impact)
  • Communications
  • Digital workplace channels and tools
  • Key templates, documents, and forms
  • Grants and funding

What our Spec-TACO-lar clients have to say

“I am so happy we chose to engage The Ally Co. to create an onboarding experience for our newest executive placement. The process was both inclusive and rewarding and set our organization up to succeed by highlighting important milestones in a deliberate plan agreed upon in advance by our team. Personally, I found huge value in understanding the first 90 days of our new hire. This allowed me to be strategic with my early interactions and not risk overwhelming. This could not have gone better and was an excellent first impression for someone entering our environment.”
Jeff Genung, Mayor at the Town of Cochrane
