Weekly HR

Our expertise

Akoya is a strategy consulting firm, dedicated to human resources in companies. We assist our clients in the transformation of businesses and organizations, the exploitation of HR data and innovation in HR processes and tools.

Workforce transformation

Strategic workforce planning

While it is a pure strategic human resources exercise, Strategic Workforce Planning is first and foremost a virtuous process that promotes continuous dialogue between HR, business lines and finance management, in order to anticipate as accurately as possible the evolution of business lines and the workforce and skills needs of an organization.

Organizational Development

Should it be to analyze its performance in the frame of Organizational Reviews or to make it evolve during Organizational Design projects, Akoya has built a simple and pragmatic approach to organization based on 3 pillars: organizational vision aligned with business issues, analytical sizing linked to a detailed understanding of activities, decoupling structural and individual issues.

Competency mapping

Changing business models, digitalization, internationalization, automation... so many evolutions that are changing the skills needed for today's and tomorrow's jobs. Without the right skills, there is no chance of achieving your strategic vision. From identification to sustainability, including the acquisition, evaluation and mastering phases, the challenges related to skills are numerous. It is essential to clearly set out your targets and objectives before taking any action.

Workforce data

Data structuring

Volume, Velocity, Variety: Big Data and its 3Vs open up a wide range of opportunities. Even though the HR function cannot yet boast of handling terabytes of data, it has much to gain from professionalizing the management of existing data. It will gain credibility with its interlocutors and monitor better its activities.

People analytics

People Analytics, or the intelligent use of data, is based on a simple equation: the identification of a problem that is compatible with data analysis, combined with a great volume of quality data. Not an end in itself, People Analytics provides the human resources the insight needed to understand and solve some of the organization's major challenges, such as collaboration or the performance of new ways of working.

Workforce innovation

Talent acquisition

The changing expectations of candidates - in search of a real "experience" to live in their professional environment - coupled with the growth of HR Tech, which can help streamline old processes in an original way, are leading HR professionals to transform the traditional recruitment process.

Talent management

Until artificial intelligence relieves us of work, it is still the human factor that remains the success factor of organizations. Identify, attract, evaluate, develop, retain: establishing a talent management policy does not tolerate improvisation. On the contrary, it is by anticipating both the needs of the organization and those of the talent that the subtle balance underlying a high-performance structure is achieved. And it is by involving all available forces that we move from a simple process to a new virtuous state of mind.

Workforce adaptation

Humanly sustainable restructuring

In the current post-Covid-19 crisis context, companies are rethinking their economic and operational models, with strong budgetary constraints. In response to these challenges, restructuring projects are likely to increase. Human Resources teams have a role to play in these operations, alongside the Finance and Legal teams, to limit the human impact as much as possible.

Our solutions

Albert

(Strategic workforce planning)

Strategic Workforce Planning has become an essential process and tool for the modern HR function. At Akoya, we have been practicing it for 10 years, that's how well we know it. And because Strategic Workforce Planning is too often endangered by fragmented management and cumbersome methodology, we have created Albert, the only SaaS tool that aims to simplify SWP while making it ever more powerful and actionable.
