In Building Your Workforce, Everyone Matters

Everyone wants to know they matter to your organization. The Birches Group Community™ approach helps your organization recognize everyone’s contribution in a holistic way. It is anchored by a purpose-driven organizational framework starting with jobs, which drives both employee growth and achievement. We know how, let us show you.

“I’m going out to clean the pasture spring;
I’ll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha’n’t be gone long.—You come too.” – Robert Frost

We Can Shape Your Organization

Much like a potter using their skills and expertise to create art on a potter’s wheel, we can help shape and form your workforce to achieve its purpose – its mission. Building an organization is important, but it is not easy. Structures and talent need to be shaped carefully, using purposeful tools and proven expertise, that will ultimately result to an engaged and integrated workforce.

Community™ – Our Integrated Talent Management Solution

When managers and staff are clear about the purpose of their roles, they become empowered and focused on achieving your organization’s mission. Good organizational design enables the team and creates and maintains effective team structures.

Our Community™ approach to integrated workforce management puts jobs at the foundation of HR. Jobs are the primary unit of measure that allows us to create HR standards that guide all HR functions, from compensation to recruitment, to learning and development, and performance management.

Community™ is organized around four areas of focus for human resources – JobsMarketSkills, and Performance – to support a full range of human resources management functions. Jobs and Market form the structural components of the organization – jobs and pay, while Skills and Performance define the capacity – the knowledge and capacity of individuals and the measurement of performance.
