People strategy


Our people strategy capability helps organisations realise their business strategy and objectives through their people. It is also the critical point of entry to other PwC and People and Organisation services and solutions, linking Strategy& to the people services offered by P&O.

A clear, measurable and executable people strategy is quickly becoming a key differentiator in this fast paced digital age. We use a four stage dynamic and flexible approach based on client need and their entry point to looking at people strategy. This spans the assessment of the current strategic landscape, development of a clear baseline to link business strategy to people activities through the employee lifecycle and to measure success.


How we can help

We help clients make the connection between their business strategy and the people activities needed to deliver it, ensuring agility - for today’s business needs and those of tomorrow - through a framework that maps strategy into all of the aspects of the employee lifecycle. We use a four stage approach to help you create value through your people.


We help you understand your organisation, people, culture and leadership. We break down business strategy to understand people implications and we use diagnostic tools to assess the current people and organisational landscape and required capabilities to identify value and constraints.
