Building Effective Organisations


Welcome to GrowthHUB

The GrowthHUB Group is a specialist Organisation Effectiveness Consultancy, operating across Europe, Middle East and Asia from our Dubai base.

From our origins in functional leadership and digital transformation, today the Group operates at the confluence of the 3 core components of an effective organisation,

  • People  – the science behind motivating a workforce to perform
  • System  – how the organisation’s assets are configured to deliver performance
  • Process  – how effectively people (or technology) performs key processes

We help leaders identify the optimal organisation configuration to drive fundamental improvements to an entity’s performance. We’ve worked with billion $ startups, right through to restructuring 40 year old family conglomerates and private offices.

No two engagements are the same, our projects range from supporting entire HR transformations to providing technical / subject matter expertise in focused areas such as Strategic Workforce Planning, Organisation Development, Leadership Development and Compensation & Benefits.


Strategic Workforce Planning

Strategic workforce planning validates that anorganisation has the capability and capacity to
deliver the business strategy.

Without the right people at the right time, place and cost,
companies risk eroding their competitiveness because people — not technologies —are still the differentiators in the digital era.

Scenario-based strategic
workforce planning is based on a foundation of HR analytics. We support organisations to improve their analytics capability from descriptive to predictive. 

Compensation & Benefits

Effective systems of reward help an organisation become more competetive, retain key staff and reduce turnover.

We support clients with job evaluation, benchmarking pay and benefits and development of both fixed and variable reward components ranging from sales incentives, employee share options and executive compensation.

We’re experienced in all the main job evaluation tools such as Hay, Mercer, Towers Watson, and even design bespoke approaches where it is right for the client.

Organisation Design & Alignment

Although every organisation is different, and there is no set formula for determining the
design, organisational design is a step-by-step methodology which identifies dysfunctional aspects of workflow, procedures, structures and systems.

We ensure your structures, culture, governance, policies, technology and all other artefacts of the ‘organisation’ are aligned with your vision, mission, values and organisation’s wider strategy. 

Managing Performance

A comprehensive performance management approach is an essential element of attracting and retaining key employees, thus significantly improving the organisation’s performance.

Yet we often see approaches to PM, where unwittingly theprogram design, drives unwanted outcomes and behaviours, which are a major drag on organisation-wide performance.

We work closely with our clients to understand their needs, to design programs which ensure the entire workforce is pulling in the same direction.


Talent Acquisition Strategy

We work in partnership with some of the biggest and best recruitment and executive search agencies in the world – our partners are a vital part of our business.

We don’t undertake search assignments ourselves, but we do support with the strategic aspect of how your organisation acquires new talent.

We develop your employer brand, identify critical jobs and associated sourcing strategies, assessment of candidates and effective pre-boarding and  on-boarding of new hires to reduce a new hire’s time to 100% productivity

Employee Engagement

An engaged workforce is the outcome of creating the right conditions for members of an organisation to give their best each day, committed to shared goals and values, motivated to contribute, with an enhanced sense of their own well-being.

It is an approach that contributes to enhanced individual performance, productivity and well-being which roll up to create higher performing teams, divisions and organisations.

We support clients with development of measurement tools, evaluation and facilitation of action planning.

Employee Relations & Investigations

Managing disputes is a natural consequence of having a workforce. However we often see ER as a HR activity in less mature models where Line Managers lack the appropriate training and experience to manage such matters, with legal consequences.

We believe prevention is better than cure, supporting clients in the development of robust employment contracts, policies and clearly documented processes. These steps combine to prevent the majority of disputes occurring.

We offer case management services in the event of sensitive or complex investigations and help you to stay on the right side of the law!

Sale/Purchase Support

When considering acquiring a business, the investor naturally conduct financial analysis to assess value and potential of a business. Yet given the key component of the organisation is always talent, nobody ever looks at the value creation opportunity that lies within a workforce that is not optimised for success – and they rarely consider this post-acquisition too. 

We’ve developed a unique approach to valuing unrealised potential (and fat) in the way a business manages talent. We support both pre and post acquisition, working with Private Equity, Private Offices and Asset Managers to identify value creation opportunities.
