Typical or projected ROI

The priority for Chief Executives in today’s post-COVID environment is to create the next great era for their business. Given this, organisations need to deploy proven people-first operating models if they’re to keep abreast of the competition in years to come.

In today’s post-COVID environment, business leaders admit

  • The world has changed and so too have their people and customers’ expectations.
  • The need to improve their organisation’s performance has never been greater.
  • Attracting and retaining talent is becoming harder.
  • Finding new and better ways of working is more important than ever.

As a Performance Transformation Process, Vantaset helps Chief Executives unlock the potential of their business to help them realise long-term competitive advantage.

The latest research says

  • Market conditions are making it more difficult for CE’s to transform their organisation’s performance
  • Conventional approaches to performance are no longer working
  • Staff engagement across industry is continuing to fall due to changes in employee expectations
  • Despite the power of AI, high-performing people are still critical to an organisation’s success

In the past, employees were focused on job security. Today, however, they want more from their employer. In particular, staff want to work for companies that have a clear sense of purpose, offer a positive work culture, and provide opportunities for growth and development. For this reason, Vantaset offers a breakthrough in workplace performance as it’s the first performance-focused framework that supports employees across every level of a business.

Global problems

  • Following the outbreak of Covid-19, the relationship between organisations and their people has changed.
  • Staff apathy and indifference have become the norm because people are feeling less connected and valued.
  • Conventional stand-alone systems can’t address the issues organisations are now facing.
  • Managers at every level of business are struggling to improve their people’s productivity and experience.

The days of organisations using outdated compliance-based systems are over. Instead, companies need to adopt true people-first frameworks if they’re to remain an employer of choice in the future.

Changing employee expectations

According to US-based employee engagement company Bonusly, the 7 employee expectations companies need to focus on are:

  • Purpose
  • Culture
  • Onboarding
  • Growth Opportunities
  • Leadership
  • Autonomy
  • Recognition

As an end-to-end solution, Vantaset addresses these expectations within a single, easy-to-use ecosystem.

The need for change

In today’s rapidly changing environment, organisations need to do more to not only stay in front but to win. Further to this, the failure of conventional systems to keep pace with shifting attitudes means leaders are looking for something that will not only power every facet of their business but give it an enduring edge in the market.

2.  Integrated system

  • Vantaset is the only product that aligns all 5 Drivers of Workplace Performance™ – Strategy, Culture, Leadership, Capability and Performance Management.
