Evolution of Governance
The concept of ‘Governance’ has seen an incredible evolution over the past 30 years. There’s widespread acknowledgement that governance is essential but being able to effectively measure, benchmark and improve governance has been the elusive goal.
Pioneering a Holistic Framework
Enterprise Care developed a proprietary Governance Intelligence® framework that demystifies the ‘how’ of meaningful governance. Our framework shows the inter-relationship between the vital organisation domains contributing to purposeful governance.
From this framework, we have developed a suite of diagnostics to gain clear insights into your operations. This can be used by the board and/or leadership team to enhance effectiveness of decision making, support impact prioritisation and ultimately deliver higher organisational performance.
Who Should Use a Diagnostic
Our Diagnostics are used by commercial, not for profit and government organisations and associations.
What is a Governance Diagnostic?
Although not an exhaustive list of the Diagnostics we provide, these are our most popular:
“A healthy culture both protects and generates value. It is therefore important to have a continuous focus on culture, rather than wait for a crisis.”~ Sir Winfried Bischoff, Chairman of the UK’s Financial Reporting Council
Our Culture Diagnostic has been designed to help you measure and benchmark your current culture and identify key strengths and opportunities. An organisation’s culture is its unique competitive advantage.
A strong organisational culture has been shown to:
- Reduce employee turnover
- Reduce absenteeism
- Increase employee productivity
- Improve client satisfaction levels
- Increase unsolicited employment applications.
“The first question I ask a board of directors and CEO is ‘what is the purpose of your organisation?’ The answer or lack of it tells me volumes” ~ Michael Kouly
Board reviews are a key process for:
- Understanding how boards are performing
- Establishing benchmarks to measure improvements
- Receiving insights or advice on steps to improve organisational performance
Our Board Impact & Effectiveness Diagnostic addresses a range of governance and strategic challenges to ensure that the functioning of the board is future focused and setting an ascent path to improved performance.
“When people are financially invested, they want a return.
When people are emotionally invested, they want to contribute.” ~ Simon Sinek
It’s not a cliché. Engaged employees show the following characteristics:
- More passionate and committed to their work;
- Engaged with the overall vision of your organisation and objectives; and
- More likely to improve your whole organisation’s performance.
By understanding and tracking staff engagement around aspects like teamwork, leadership, connection to vision/objectives, as well as learning and development, our Staff Engagement Diagnostic is designed to collect a wealth of engagement data that can help you improve your organisation’s performance.
“If you think compliance is expensive – try non-compliance” ~ Former US Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty
As you evaluate how you manage the systems and protocols you have in place, our Compliance Diagnostic can give you a snapshot of how compliant your business is and what kind of compliance culture you have. The results will allow you to quickly identify areas of potential risk and financial losses.
Talk to us today about your specific compliance needs e.g.:
- Wages Integrity (system and cultural compliance of wages, overtime, superannuation, penalty rates etc.)
- Incident Management System Sufficiency (developed for the Aged Care industry, off the back of the Royal Commission recommendations)
