Our Culture

At Proactive People Performance, we believe that people capabilities are a source of competitive advantage and our passion is to transform these through leadership. We help our clients:

  • Connect their people with their strategies, engage them in a shared vision, and make people feel valuable again.
  • Determine current effectiveness and what needs to happen to achieve their strategy and deliver business results.
  • Build capability to support change and equip leaders with skills to act.

Our values-driven approach to culture assessment and development is a collaborative way to connect your people and tap into their passion, purpose and productivity.

We can help you understand the workplace culture you have today and intentionally shape the culture you need for tomorrow. Get it right and employee engagement goes up, and with it a sense of belonging and commitment.

Each phase will help you understand what people value most so you know how best to motivate them and keep them engaged and performing at their best.

What Makes Us Different?

There are a lot of HR Companies out there, why choose us? We think there are a number of reasons:

  • We practice what we preach – we’re responsible for ensuring we live our values and help each other to be great by building and maintaining high-performing workplaces.
  • We customise our efforts to your needs. We listen carefully to ensure we understand what you want to achieve, and then develop solutions targeted to your objectives in a proactive, rather than reactive, way.  
  • We take responsibility seriously – we’re self-motivated, self-aware, self-disciplined and use our initiative.
  • We are interested in working with you over the long haul. Your needs will change over time, and we can help keep you up to date. But we also view our work as a partnership. It’s not US telling YOU how to do things. It’s a joint effort aimed at achieving your business objectives.

Meet Jacqui
