Connections Create Value

Please click on the thumbnail to enlarge.


“Connecting” matters now more than ever. CEOs talk about the need to connect with customers and suppliers, across teams and business units, and to meet strategic goals. New recruits are encouraged to connect with key people. Even getting a job is all about “being connected.” We’re technologically connected in more ways than we can keep up with. Never before have so many diverse people been connected across professions, across generations, across cultures, and across borders in a huge global network. 


The bottom line is that certain kinds of connections are more likely to maximise performance than others: connecting people to people in ways that promote personal and professional growth, connecting people to a sense of purpose, and connecting people to the resources they need to deliver great work. Indeed, how people connect can mean the difference between a loyal, engaged workforce and a costly revolving door.  


The kinds of connections that launch an organization’s top talent to new levels of performance are not ones that occur by chance. These connections happen by design. 


In this knowledge era, organizations need to improve connectivity across many boundaries. This requires a deep analysis of the relationships among organisational structure, competitive strategies, and the external environment. It means building reward systems that reinforce clear accountabilities and encourage collaboration. And it means cultivating a culture in which people produce results based on a sense of well-being and ownership in their work, rather than fear of management reprisal. 


Connecting people to what matters is where Deloitte can help you generate more value for your organisation. 

When considering a company’s human capital chain it’s important to see the bigger picture. At Deloitte we understand that every aspect of a business is interrelated and interdependent and that their collective interaction between them affects a company’s overall success.  To this end, we develop an independent and unbiased viewpoint culminating in a human capital solution that gives businesses the competitive edge. And helps them keep it.

The adjacent images are a series of “connect-the-dots” images. See the dots connect and create value and how understanding and maximising these connections can help your company thrive during difficult economic times.  Deloitte Human Capital focuses on five industries, namely, financial services, consumer, mining, energy & resources and public sector.  Each industry requires different types and combinations of connections.

In these volatile economic times it is important to maximise the value of your biggest asset, people.  So allow us to work with you to gain value out of these connections.
