Business Productivity consulting services: A key driver of performance for both leaders and organizations in today’s challenging business environment has been leveraging technology as an enabler. Yet, most businesses don’t have the visibility and understanding to make informed decisions about their IT strategy. With so many technology options available, and features and benefits offered, it is no surprise that organizations are concerned about how to deploy resources cost effectively and efficiently.
Arcus approaches these challenges through the lens of growth strategies – we strive to answer the key question: “What will it take to achieve a specific growth rate?”. Most businesses focus on obvious opportunities but need to dig deeper to identify long term opportunities that others haven’t uncovered as yet.
An example of leveraging technology for performance improvement:
Arcus has developed a set of over 2000 core job measurement processes, the Arcus Position Evaluation Tool (PET) is designed to meet specific organizational deliverables and goals. PET helps organizations:
- Access job related information in one repository to enhance efficiency, consistency and manage the level of effort.
- Deploy a structured governance process through out the organization.
- Develop a symmetric process to align positions, scope and size, capabilities, succession planning and talent management.
- Develop pay equity embodied in a comprehensive and transparent compensation methodology for the entire organization
- Engage and involve managers and staff in the job evaluation process.
- Deploy the position evaluation process more efficiently with the support of Arcus, where required.
