We’ve all seen the signs and read the stories about the seismic change in the American workplace. Businesses are bidding for workers by offering higher wages, better benefit packages, and promises of better working conditions. 

Studies show that in addition to better pay, colleagues demand that companies demonstrate social responsibility and create a more positive work environment. Colleagues want an inclusive workplace where they feel valued and engaged in the company culture. Companies have taken notice.

From restaurant, retail, to medical professionals, businesses all serve one thing: the customer. And the first person that the customer encounters is the worker, or colleague. Whether or not a business is ultimately successful depends on the colleague’s performance.

Businesses are reaching out for help.

More and more businesses are striving to create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive work environment and are reaching out to professionals for guidance. Hiring a consulting firm is an essential step for any business to grow and enhance the culture in their workplace. 

Hiring the right firm isn’t a “one size fits all” enterprise. Selecting the right consultant for any business is easier said than done. The firm you choose must possess the ability to objectively assess its needs and gaps from a top-down approach with a 360-degree perspective. Companies today need expert advice in enhancing the culture and experience in the workplace to engage each employee successfully.

“Each and every challenge an organization faces is unique to that company,” says Alexandra McGroarty, Co-founder and HR Consultant at McGroarty & Co. Consulting, LLC. “No two companies are alike. Their leadership, management, culture, and values all have a lasting impact on the performance of their business and its ability to continue growing and remain successful, especially through periods of uncomfortable internal shifts.

 McGroarty & Co. Consulting, LLC (MCG), based out of Marlton, New Jersey, is co-founded and led by accomplished HR consultant Alexandra McGroarty. MCG is one of the world’s leading consultancy firms that can tackle issues and implement solutions for businesses across a broad array of needs. 

“Each challenge requires an equally unique approach to solve in a way that remains aligned with the organization, its leadership, and its internal culture,” McGroarty advised. “As a certified professional leadership coach and diversity professional, my work takes me through the ins and outs of every organization I work with to craft and implement solutions that truly solve their needs and help them meet their goals in order to create a thriving company that people are glad to work for, and with.”

From Human Resources and Project Management to matters of diversity and inclusion and colleague engagement and Change Management initiatives like mergers and acquisitions, MCG has established itself as one of the top global consulting firms in operation today.

McGroarty, who prefers to use the term colleague instead of employee, says that focusing on the colleagues as a whole instead of just their nine to five personae is an essential step to building a positive work environment.

McGroarty advises businesses to show gratitude and thank their team for all they do. Practicing what she preaches at MCG, she is grateful to her colleagues. “We are blessed to have such strong and valuable team members working with us to achieve our goals and growth as a business.”

Before co-founding MCG, McGroarty worked as the VP of another world-ranked leading HR firm. She developed the skills necessary to become an effective and capable business leader and consulting expert at local and global levels. 

More recently, McGroarty was listed as a finalist for the 2021 HR Person of the Year award for her continued drive and dedication to her company, employees, and the clients they serve. She will also be making a charitable contribution to the Humanity Preservation Foundation under the name of her late husband and co-founder, Michael McGroarty, who passed away earlier in 2021.

Businesses are learning that to keep quality workers; they must improve working conditions and the workplace environment. As companies move forward to enhance the culture for their colleagues, consulting firms will play a pivotal role in strengthening the experience in the ever-growing and constantly evolving landscape of today’s business world.
