At Match we like to do things differently.
Why? Because the old way of conducting business doesn’t cut it in a world dictated by trends, technologies and, most importantly, change.
Like every business, we’ve had to evolve, become more agile, and continuously adapt to evolving market demands.
By keeping a finger on the pulse, our unique mix of experience, knowhow, insight and technology can solve the challenges our clients face to ensure they too can stay competitive amid the chaos.
The proof of this philosophy and adaptability can be found in our own business success. For more than 20 years we have thrived as a dynamic, innovative and inspiring delivery outfit, as part of a wider Management Consultancy group; optimising technology and data to help organisations realise their ambitions for change.
We are brilliant because of our...
Change. It’s a small word but one that should be embraced, not feared. Change brings opportunity, and it’s the ability to react to it that allows businesses to flourish through alignment and mutual agreement. At Match our motivation is to ensure that every action has a profound and beneficial impact, through a set of values that drives integrity, trust and ethical business practice. We don’t do change for change’s sake, but we do help our clients develop clarity and understanding of the capacity they need to achieve their goals, and we only help if we can add real value.
We always take a comprehensive and holistic approach to the challenge of organisational and digital change.
Working together, we use our expertise, toolkit and lessons learnt to ensure we add significant business value. We identify priorities and drive outcomes, implementing the best approach to maximise clients’ ambitions.
Using a mix of consultancy, technology and networking we tailor our service to the exact needs of our clients by:
- Assessing an organisation’s challenges and approach to capability strategy, planning and execution
- Providing consultancy services to address challenges by working with clients’ own teams and in assessing their shortfalls
- Matching an organisation’s strategy to specific competencies
- Matching the specific requirements of candidates in our extensive network
- Supporting attraction, acquisition, development and retention of high-performing resources
Match was born out of a belief that we can, and do, help our clients to achieve their capability goals in a better way – in a way that other consultancies can’t. We bring a unique mix of experience, insight and technology to solve the challenges our clients face. We know our solutions work – we have applied them many times over the years, and technology just keeps helping us apply them in more and more innovative ways. Our effective services, unrivalled expertise and insight help organisations improve their own performance through their people, sharing challenges and utilisation of data.Challenging economic conditions, a crowded market, a sector engaged in a race to the bottom… Match was formed to bring a better way of working. The directors of Match Performance Solutions Ltd. have all been in business, performing Senior Management roles in FTSE 250 companies for several decades before forming this company. Match was formed out of a belief that the current model for capability management, change delivery and data is inadequate and ineffective in the face of accelerating change and increasing demands. We believe that companies today need a trusted advisor who can help determine requirements as well as give insights into the market of capability management; opening up access to a wider network of high calibre talent.
