So what is The GC Index?

The GC Index is a common language and framework which identifies five key ways in which people can make an impact and contribution to a role, team and/or organisation. This short video gives you a good introduction to the five elements of The GC Index

InFocus HR leverages the insight from The GC Index to provide insight to organisations in the following areas:

Mergers & Acquisition Leadership Assessment

A successful merger and acquisition strategy can be an effective way of growing an organisation, either through acquisition of new customers, services or talent.  However, between 70% and 90% (Harvard Business Review) fail to meet the expected business case.  Whilst there can be many reasons for this high-level of failure, one common thread is people.

Leading an acquired or merged organisation can test the skills of the most accomplished leaders and leadership teams.  This solution helps those accountable for deals to understand individual impact and collaboration when making decisions on future leaders/leadership teams in newly acquired or merged organisations.

HR Transformation Setting up for Success

Using the GC Index at an individual and/or team level to support senior HR/People leaders to deliver improved organisational design changes.  By adding in the additional focus of energy alongside skills, knowledge and behaviour HR/People leaders will be able to make more inform decisions on both the organisational design but also who to appoint into role, or who to appoint into the wider team to ensure that key individuals have the right support around them in order to be successful

Successful People Strategy and Plan Delivery

Whilst some people teams will be fortunate enough to have dedicated resources to lead and manage delivery of the plan the majority will leverage the existing resources who are busy undertaking their day job and trying to balancing the needs of both.  Those same resources may also be technical experts in reward, talent, learning or employee relations but that doesn’t necessarily mean they have the inclination to lead and deliver the change.

Whilst it’s important to ensure those resources have the right technical skills and also the right project/change delivery capabilities there may still be challenges or failure to deliver if there isn’t the right balance of individual impact and collaboration within the team

Using insight from The GC Index People leads will be able to understand those team members who may be better suited to implementing change, or improving the status quo versus those who are able to assess and define the future or identify that one new idea to give your organisation the competitive advantage may be the difference between delivering a successful people strategy and failure….
