How we create value
Through value creating advisory and solid execution, we assist top managements in ambitious organisations reach top performance and solve their most important challenges.
We approach these challenges as if they were our own and contribute to the organisation as good colleagues would do. We are present and ambitious on behalf of our clients – and not afraid of addressing the difficult issues. Only that way, we make sure to solve the right problem in the right way.
Our vision is to create sustainable solutions that last in the long term – while taking into account the organisation’s short-term needs. This ambition permeates our way of working, and we are not satisfied until we have created real and long-term value for our clients.
Enabling good leadership
Leadership creates growth and increases competitiveness – and it is crucial for a good working environment and a high level of well-being. Therefore, our mission is to enable good leadership for more people.
Our clients notice this aspiration in our constant focus on strengthening the organisation’s leadership power and its ability to deliver results through others.
For people, with people, as people
We believe that people and their knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviour are the essence of any organisation. Active involvement, competency development and knowledge sharing are therefore a crucial part of our way of working. It ensures execution and anchoring and prepares the organisation for solving future challenges.
High professional standard
H&B is strongly rooted in the academic world and we have contributed to more than 30 books on topics such as leadership, governance, complexity and customer experiences. We pride ourselves on our high professional standard and this professionalism characterises our way of working.
We have a strong learning culture, which means that we all actively develop and share knowledge. We create our own tools and models and our advisors therefore have an in-depth understanding of them – as well as the ability to adjust them to match the specific organisation.
We actively take responsability
For us, social responsibility is not something you only take on special occasions. It is an attitude and a way of thinking. We believe that if you have the ability, you also have an obligation. Therefore, we commit to taking responsibility in our dealings with colleagues, clients and the world around us:
We relate to our clients’ reality and work to create long-term relations
We cherish solidarity and believe that as a company we are most successful if we work as a team
We drive the management agenda and strive to propagate good leadership
We create robust solutions by standing up for what we believe in and challenging our clients
We support passion, creativity and initiative through a high degree of autonomy
We contribute to sustainable transformation through our clients and partnerships
We lift our clients through various transformations and holistic consultancy
We take responsibility for the personal and professional development of ourselves and the people around us
We spend the equivalent of 1% of our turnover on charity
Partnership with PlanBørnefonden
We have formed a pro bono partnership with PlanBørnefonden who we give the most valuable we have: Our time, knowledge and skills. We have chosen PlanBørnefonden as a partner because of its long-term approach to development work which helps to ensure children’s rights and equality for girls around the world. That is something we would very much like to support!
