Developing better business relationships, one conversation at a time.
I believe that everyone deserves to flourish at work and that this is the right time to focus on people over profit, to achieve better business outcomes. I am Ann Stow, nice to meet you!
It’s my mission to change how businesses talk and act about their people – improving business relationships in and outside the workplace. Making the world a better place by instilling an approach to business where people and the organisation flourish by putting people first
Businesses become a place to thrive, not survive
“Everything we do in life is about relationships”
Humanise Work do what we do because we are passionate about people, their lived experiences and development; and we believe that everyone should have an equal voice.
We believe that better organisations (& a better world) are created by putting people first: increasing understanding of the power of customer, employee and board relationships.
We bring passion, and a radically people-focused approach to improve relationships within and between organisations and individuals.
Driven by curiosity, fairness and integrity we believe that people belong at the centre of organisational and leadership development.
…that your focus on outputs and numbers
is removing your perspective from the people who make and sustain your
High levels of sickness, low
retention, high replacement costs, failed change programmes, poor customer
service, loss of investment, loss of reputation, closure.
These all impact your bottom line, probably more than you think.
First, we don’t take your word for it :-) we engage with you & challenge assumptions to help you find the right question, that way the outcome you need can be developed within the business, by the business and will evolve to suit your specific context, without our footprint.
We harness employee experience to build people focused futures, and to develop business relationships, within & external to organisations, for better business and meaningful change.
Disrupting conventional practice, we look at the organisation and its relationships in context, actively involving employees and external stakeholders.
We elicit feedback, discussion, honesty and openness; taking time to know your business and people.
This understanding can be painful, but worth it!
Our tried and tested methodologies take a little longer, but the results should stand the test of time.
Communication, collaboration and co-creation are at the heart of everything we do.
Working closely with your people and contacts, we gain an understanding of your culture, skills, networks & business model. We call this Organisational Ethnography.
By finding out how things are, we work with you to co-create meaningful change through engagement and action, developing curious people and a brilliant business.
This approach facilitates honest discussions, identifies the real questions, enhances motivation, employee engagement & experience, customer satisfaction and, ultimately, the bottom line.
…and provides bespoke outcomes for each organisation, addressing the specific challenges and developing a tailored approach to change.
We aim to re-ignite the spark in your people to make them love working with you!
Using practice-based professional learning to help you recognise your ways of thinking and biases, to reimagine how you communicate to create a more engaged and more productive organisation.
With a reputation for providing considered challenge, we’ll identify the key change agents in your organisation who will continue this key challenge. function for your development.
We introduce boards to their employees, through lived experience stories and engagement, empowering, challenging people and organisations to face their realities, fears and potential.
