Navigating Industry Trends
with Innovative
Knowledge Management

Becoming an industry leader relies on balancing what’s now with what’s next. Companies across all industries need to merge the reality of what is working for them today with the vision that industry trends are shaping for tomorrow.

Our expert Knowledge Management (KM) solutions respect unique client KM steps while moving them forward on their evolving industry paths.

Treading Current
Business Trends

To remain competitive, all industries explore new ways to navigate current trends. Centralized, secure company information that is regularly updated and easily accessed helps companies traverse current business trends while maintaining what traditionally works for them.

Sustainable Operations

More than ever, improving sustainability and costs across all business operations is a must.

Many companies are seeing the benefits of creating and implementing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In fact, 53% of revenues of the 500 largest US companies come from business activities that support SDGs –S&P Global

We can help by analyzing current enterprise resources and developing a customized sustainability action plan that sets you on a path of sustainable, profitable operations.

Changing Work Culture

74% of U.S. companies either are currently using or plan to implement a permanent hybrid work model.- Squaretalk

Post-pandemic business norms have changed. Employees expect more flexibility with where and when and how they work, prompting employers to reassess and adopt flatter, more agile hybrid work structures.

We help companies make shifts to these more modern workplace designs by working with them to
re-envision their IT infrastructures and operational processes so they can create work experiences that meet the expectations of all stakeholders.

Labor Shortage

Begin with employee turnover continues to be major issue across industries, creating an unprecedented labor shortage. According to the Us Chamber of Congress, “the latest data shows that we have over 10 million job openings in the U.S.—but only around 6 million unemployed workers.”

The potential loss of valuable skill and knowledge going out the door with departing employees can create potential operational and productivity gaps.

We can help by offering customized solutions that capture, structure, and provide on-demand access to valuable current employee knowledge and skill before they exit.

New Normal Compliance

There’s nothing new about the reality all industries face when it comes to dealing with changing Federal, State, and Local regulations.

From “green business” directives to an increased demand for more diversity and equity in personnel and work experiences, companies must keep a keen eye on many emerging guidelines and rules.

We can assist by performing thorough gap analyses to detect and resolve compliance issues and creating a centralized data management platform that ensures that compliance data is current, correctly and safely stored, and easily accessed to support ongoing company compliance.

Self-Paced Employee Training

A major trend corporate training that is employees want training that is individualized, job-embedded, and time efficient. E-learning offers self-paced, on-demand short modules that require 40%-60% less employee time. —Brandon Hall

To effectively implement E-learning, many organizations need to redesign traditional training content and address new training needs for in-person and remote learners.

We can help organizations achieve their training goals by creating self-paced, on-demand, short learning modules that are easy to understand, easy to complete, and customized to the different skill levels of all employees.

Workplace DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion)

Diverse companies are 70% more likely to capture new markets.

There is no denying that Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives continue to trend. Businesses who successfully leverage their diversity are clearly seeing the benefits. The creation of customized company DEI initiatives starts with company leadership examining and articulating the strengths and weaknesses in how fairness and equity are currently being addressed across an increasingly diverse employee experience.

With the help of our skilled consultants, organizations can analyze their current DEI trends and gaps then design their own strategic Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) management plan to create an inclusive and equitable work culture.
