What We Do
Here at HATCH we provide businesses with cutting-edge research to help you make evidence- based decisions about your workplace transformation. Through the application of psychology and social science we provide our clients with actionable data to develop the best possible workplaces and cultures for their business.
We don’t look at projects in isolation. We look at the three spheres of work – people, place and technology – and ensure each of those interlinking elements are considered. Unlike larger consultancies that offer project management or agent services under the same roof, we are independent. This means you can trust that our advice is based on what is right for your business. Our evidence-based and distinctly human-centric approach makes us different. We have a whole toolbox of validated measures at our fingertips that can test for everything from personality and psychological safety to culture and physical workspace. We know that no two businesses are the same, so no two solutions are the same. No cookie-cutter solutions here.
Our ways of working have dramatically changed in the last few years, some by force, some by design. Crafting a successful hybrid working plan is more than just ensuring people have the technology kit and know how to use it. Innovation, onboarding, and cultural connectivity can all take a hit if hybrid is not managed well. The flip side is that hybrid working is the most desired non-remuneration benefit for employees, so recruiting and retaining top talent requires some type of hybrid approach. HATCH will balance these sometimes competing demands. Our consultants will help your teams develop their operating rhythms and align those across the organization. With a thoughtful, integrated hybrid working strategy your business can not just survive but thrive in the new hybrid working landscape.
HATCH act as the ‘rocket fuel’ for your change program. First we help set the change strategy. Next, HATCH train and support your internal team to deliver the strategy using our workplace change toolkit. Since HATCH clients are global, we are experts in delivering change modules both virtually or face-to-face, making sure no one gets left behind. We use a community model of change, leveraging existing sinews of connectivity within the organisation, finding that change is adopted more quickly from people who already share a social cohesion. This means faster adoption of new processes, less ramp up time, lower change related attrition, and a more successful transformation. These all equate to stickier change at a lower consultant fee.
Our approach is collaborative, working with you as experts of your own business to understand the challenges faced and the best way forward, matching that with an evidence-led approach. We bring our expertise in managing change in similar environments, along with our understanding of the psychology of behaviour. Your programme is built on both essential change principles as well as global best practice, to maximise success of your transition.
What we test for
From hybrid working, culture, and facilities to psychological safety, wellbeing, wonder, and behaviour we have a suite of tools to help you collect the right data to get the right solution. We are always developing, refining, and retesting our set of validated measures to ensure they are fit for purpose and reflect cutting-edge research.
Wonder at work
Based on the research for her Wall-Street Journal best-selling book The Power of Wonder, Monica can bring the power of wonder to your workplace. Her debut book is already receiving a tremendous reception from the business world and represents the culmination of decades of observations and research.
“Wonder at work” is a program that takes scientific research about wonder and applies it to actionable learning outcomes in the corporate environment. From leadership to teamwork to organizational culture, wonder can support core social and emotional competencies like empathy, flexibility to change, curiosity, emotional intelligence, psychological safety, authenticity, resiliency, and more.
If you’re looking for just a bit of inspirational food for thought for an event, some primer trainings, or want to engage in a full wonder-based business strategy, Monica is offering a series of wonder-based keynotes and trainings specifically aimed at the business audience.
Equity, diversity & inclusion
Equity, diversity, and Inclusion is not just a strategy initiative. It should be integrated into every aspect of a business, from design to processes; communications to culture. Each step in the employee experience should be accessible and equitable. HATCH use validated psychological measures and our proven change management approach to help you understand your culture and identify the specific gaps or barriers where people might be getting left behind. We then work with internal stakeholders to craft and deliver interventions that have measurable impact and help you to create an equitable, diverse, inclusive culture of belonging.
Sometimes big conversations need external support. HATCH facilitators engage stakeholders and draw out key topics for discussion, helping find consensus and pin down next steps. Whether a large or small group, HATCH facilitations are tailored to your specific project outcomes. Founder Monica Parker is particularly adept at challenging and guiding even the most senior executives towards shared, actionable goals.
HATCH are experts in research and we use these skills in custom research and whitepapers. These whitepapers can be based on secondary research focusing on existing published data, or can involve a piece of custom, primary research designed and gathered by HATCH social scientists. We will work with you to develop what research question you seek to answer, understand what you hope to achieve with the research and what audience you want to appeal to with the finished product. The end result is a deeply researched, well-written and polished piece.
We’d love you to get in touch.
