EHS Partners’ structured operational performance improvement program delivers a broad range of operating improvements, sustainable cost savings and tactical revenue improvements while simultaneously optimizing a company’s operating platform and improving the functioning of the business.
The benefits are not just financial, they are operational and organizational. Clients report that improvements to their operating platforms and increased knowledge about their organizations are just as valuable as the most striking benefit — the generation of significant new cash earnings.
20-40% impact from the short 18-week EHS program.
Our clients achieve a recurring annual impact from efficiencies and revenue enhancements, typically worth 20% – 40% or more of “normal earnings,” with 65% of value in place within the first 12 months. For financial institutions and clients with suppressed earnings, the improvement has equated to well over 10% impact against the cost base.
We have a 100% success rate, with results leading to a refined operating platform that ensures greatly improved effectiveness.
The EHS program’s operational benefits include process changes, the improved resource-use prioritization, alignment of activities across the organization and the standardization and optimization of business practices.
Without exception clients cite our program’s numerous organizational and cultural benefits, despite initially engaging EHS Partners based on the certainty of financial and operational improvements.
These additional benefits include:
- The leadership team gaining unprecedented insight into a company’s business and people through a newfound visibility of its processes and capabilities
- The creation through collaboration of a common bond across previously disparate parts of the organization, honing the company’s cultural alignment around performance
- The establishment of a clarifying and confidence-building trajectory, including the development of organizational leadership
- The development of internal skills that result in sustainable performance improvement
Clients have found that our specially designed program’s process and tools enable them to integrate the same keys for success into their new or developing Continuous Improvement efforts. These programs are run internally by the client and continue to typically yield meaningful incremental impact annually, albeit a fraction of what the entire EHS program achieved. To support our clients’ ongoing efforts, EHS typically offers advice and the continued use of software gratis.
In some cases a client will engage EHS years after their initial program to re-energize the organization with a partial or enterprise-wide program. The results in this case have nearly mirrored that of the initial program in financial magnitude and overall success.
A Program with a 100% Success Rate
Unlike the consultant-heavy study/recommendation approach of traditional firms, we focus instead on impactful, specific, tactical and achievable operational performance improvement. Our highly structured, proprietary turn-key program is fast and efficient, designed to identify and capture every opportunity within a company’s control while mitigating risks associated with change.
EHS acts as a catalyst to help companies accelerate and magnify performance improvement by mobilizing and coordinating their existing resources to achieve tremendous operating traction. Our program is built around the involvement, ownership and accountability of line managers — the very people who have to implement any recommendations and who hold the key to long-term success; and we work closely with client leadership teams to ensure that success. In addition, we purposely build our clients’ capabilities to utilize our approach and tools on a continuous basis, without the need for future outside assistance.
Our senior-level team has been dedicated to this single practice for over 30 years, successfully applying our time-tested process in leading scores of performance improvement projects. We understand the elements that result in a successful engagement, and we have the results to prove it, as well as the continuing, unwavering and enthusiastic support of client leadership.
We are proud that all of our clients have met or exceeded their goals from their EHS-led programs, ultimately realizing 100% or better of the anticipated impact.
