In addition, our consulting practice includes organization reviews, expatriate compensation policy work, general HR policy consulting, job evaluation, salary scale development, compensation policy work, competency models and performance management.

Our founders worked as HR practitioners in the world’s largest multi-lateral organization, and have a deep understanding of how these institutions operate, including working with Staff Unions, Boards and Representatives of Member States.

  • Development of a compensation and reward framework for a large regional development bank, including benchmarking of their international staff and national staff in each field location, and creation of salary scales for each office
  • Review and updating of HR policies for a regional organization in Southeast Asia
