Set Your Vision Right
Put on your ESG lens
ESG, an acronymn for Environmental, Social and Governance, is a framework that helps stakeholders understand how an organization is managing risks and opportunities created by changing conditions, such as shifts in environmental, economic, and social systems.
ESG has gone mainstream over the last decade because of how important it has become in the investment community. There are a growing number of ESG rating agencies and reporting frameworks, all of which have evolved to improve transparency and consistency of the ESG information that firms are reporting publicly.
Integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles into your business strategy is no longer a should-do, but a must-do. Failing to take a position on ESG will leave you trailing the competition. ESG criteria have also become a key part of any risk management strategy. By measuring the impact of ESG on operational and reputational risk, you are better placed to mitigate them. Without effective strategy, businesses leave themselves open to ESG risks and also miss presented opportunities.
Even if you're just starting out your business, Elyon can work with you to integrate ESG to build a positive reputation by ensuring that your business is associated with responsible and sustainable practices. This will make investors and customers more likely to do business with you and recommend you to others.
People and Change
Getting the best from your people at every level, especially when there is constant change ongoing, is the key to creating sustainable competitive advantage for your business. Solid strategies, processes and technology alone do not deliver results. It takes people to accept, adopt, drive, and sustain the change to realise tangible impact.
We have experienced HR professionals to solve your people and change management challenges through their knowledge, skills and expertise in harnessing the power of data analytics, designing and implementating structured organisational interventions.
Program management is the coordinated management of multiple projects that will allow the organization to prioritize funding, optimize resource allocation, and manage interdependencies and conflicts between projects. A program is successful only if its components or projects are successful. You need to have an effective Project Management Office (PMO) to help your business contribute to its ESG goals.
We have experienced program managers who will conduct such PMO activities to ensure they align with your business goals and those set out by your ESG policy.
Organizational excellence helps an organization to excel in all its sphere of activities. It makes the organization to achieve and sustain outstanding levels of performance which meets or exceeds the expectations of all the stakeholders. For organizational excellence to be achieved, leadership and staff need to develop a culture of customer-centricity, focus on creativity and innovation, and develop organisational capabilities to meet the needs of its stakeholders.
Elyon can help your business create a holistic environment for the culture of organisational excellence to thrive.
Health and Mental Wellbeing
COVID has had a profound impact on health and mental wellbeing. Our bodies and minds are not separate, so it's not surprising that poor mental health can affect your body and vice versa. With more people working remotely, this has caused greater stress and challenges for employees, who have reported heightened stress and anxiety levels.
For staff to give their best, business owners need to place priority on their employees' mental wellbeing. Mental wellness is more than the absence of mental illness - it is a positive state of mental health. Elyon works with socially and environmentally partners to help equip your staff with resources to cope with different stressors in order to lead a fulfilling life and career.
What does success look like to you?
An organization advancing a clear set of values and intentions will attract intrinsically motivated employees with similar values more easily. These employees are also more likely to stay and will produce high-quality work because they see themselves contributing to a higher purpose.

What is the problem you are addressing? By clearly identifying the problem your business is responding to, it will focus every action you take to ensure you stay on track for success.
Who are your beneficiaries? Your business will operate more effectively if you keep your target audience and their best interest in mind.
How will your products or services address the problem? Doing so will reveal how your offerings will advance your goals and which one you should concentrate your efforts and resources on.
