In every organization, there is a passionate group of people obsessed with leading with the future in mind.
You think about a future where work practices are agile, reflective and productive, and where the People function is the catalyst and key driving partner for organizational transformation.
At co:grow, we believe that there is no one best practice approach to solving organizational challenges. Your vision of the future is - uniquely yours. The Future of Work is not a reaction to the future, but an active creation of the world you want to operate in.
We partner with growth-minded leaders to co-create and realise your vision of Future of Work
Realize the power of the Future of Work, today.
For a more meaningful tomorrow.
Transforming the People function
During an unprecedented time, many look to the People function for support and guidance. At the same time, HR as a profession and function continues to transform and, for the most part, struggles to deliver on the promise of a brighter, more flexible, and deeply engaged future workforce.
co:grow is built on a deep-rooted optimism that the People function is at the forefront of the next wave of changes, accelerated by the pandemic and a shift in our fundamental work structure. Now, it is even more important that HR leaders not only see the possibilities, but that they practice a different way of thinking and working together to run and own business performance.
Our mission is to work with you to break free from a best practice mindset and deliver on your one-of-the-kind organizational transformational vision, together, by reimagining your HR function. We do this through consultative projects, fractional leadership and co:lab learning experiences.
Our flagship 4 weeks “Reimagining HR through growth mindset” is a HR incubator learning journey that takes you and your teams through a discovery engagement where you not only learn about the HR function fundamentals, but be provided the tools to engage and develop as a growth-minded HR leader. You will also be able to network with like-minded learners and leaders, as we embrace the journey of change and evolution together.
All the learning modules will be delivered live virtually, with two 1 on 1 coaching sessions and 1 optional networking closure in the location indicated in the sign up.
Future Of Work
The Future of Work is an informed perspective about how work structures and the way we work could fundamentally shift. The Future of Work perspective is also an opportunity for organisations and teams to take a proactive step to not just react to the future, but to create the world you want to operate in.
Our mission is to partner with you to co-create that vision, and turn them into sustainable futuristic workplace practices.
What is keeping you up at night?
Our mission is to be the partners for visionary and growth minded leaders everywhere, to not only dream about the future, but to create them, together.
co:grow officially kicked off in 2023 with the deep-rooted optimism for the People function and the Future of Work. co:grow embodies the spirit of co-creation and growth, with the colon symbol (:) serving as the reminder of how we must challenge ourselves and client partners to think about the direct relationship between co-creation and sustainable organisational growth.
Inundated by the shifts in the post-pandemic world and through in-depth conversations with various business leaders, we felt the sense of urgency and need across the industry to support our client partners to prepare for that future.
