Developing a Management Competence Framework
We helped to develop a management competence framework for Alpha. This was a major project which involved running focus groups with Alpha managers around the country, establishing their roles within the company.
Management Development Programme Evaluation
We evaluated a newly developed management development programme for three levels of store management; the results subsequently supported further programme development.
Customer Satisfaction Surveys
We carried out quarterly customer satisfaction surveys for Berkeley Scott, the recruitment consultancy, over a period of 18 months, to assist them to monitor and improve service delivery.
The Securities Institute
We carried out client research for The Securities Institute with some of the UK’s major financial services firms to establish their view of the content of the FSA regulated examination and its relevance to current practice.
Sales Team Research
Pareas Associates was commissioned to research a range of sales positions within the company – leading to a review of sales team competences and the development of team members.
CLB, a firm of chartered accountants, commissioned us to carry out telephone research across a number of different charities on a range of trustee remuneration issues. The firm’s aim was to offer a series of informative workshops to support these organisations in their practices.
Developing Management Competences
We were commissioned to investigate the range of skills and competences required by the top tier of managers in a fast growing dot.com company – with a view to facilitating a reorganisation of the business.
Pareas Associates worked with Champneys Health Resorts to carry out an HR audit with their staff and managers – our role included questionnaire design and development, and consultancy advice on sampling, selection and data collection.
We have also carred out research for the following clients:
• The Department for Education
