51%* of organizations require a major culture overhaul

Most global execs agree employee engagement is critical, and confess their firms suck at it.

In short, BUS is uniquely qualified to help enlightened brand leaders achieve their business’ true potential by helping their people to do the best work of their lives.

BUS works exclusively with complex organizations struggling to solve the most challenging internal engagement issues.

In Good to Great, Jim Collins creates a lasting metaphor by comparing a business to a bus. He said,
“You are a bus driver. The bus, your company, is at a standstill, and it’s your job to get it going. Most people assume that great bus drivers (i.e. business leaders) immediately start the journey by announcing to the people on the bus where they’re going—by setting a new direction by articulating a fresh corporate vision.

In fact, leaders of companies that go from good to great start not with “where” but with “who.” They start by getting the right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus, and the right people in the right seats. And they stick with that discipline no matter how dire the circumstances.”

Poor internal engagement prevents more companies from becoming great than the lack of funding, strategy, or vision.

Until the advent of BUS, business leaders had few places to turn for help. While there’s no shortage of HR consultants with niche skills, few lack the ability to deeply engrain themselves within organizations and add substantive value across a host of disciplines – leadership coaching, internal communications, team training, hiring/onboarding, firing, culture management, etc. And far too many service providers are overly-biased with their own enabling technology or tracking tools that almost always overpromise and underdeliver.

In stark contrast, BUS has the expertise to work with multi-facetted organizations, the experience to properly diagnose and prescribe the correct remedies, and the scale to oversee implementation – with no other objective than ensuring meaningful and lasting improvements to employee performance.
