The Future of Consulting Services
Reimagine new concepts of how consulting services might be shaped to meet new challenges for both markets and ways of work. Identify external challenges over 3-5 years and develop new organisational design and ways of working.
wHAT IT IS

Roobiks is an employee management platform for consultancies. It helps align employees’ individual growth and the organisations growth. The platform currently consists of an expectation management and staffing feature.

WHO IT IS FOR

Roobiks is designed for senior management, project managers, as well as employees of all levels.

WHY

We have identified that bottom up growth is the more sustainable way to grow and develop new capabilities and service offerings within an organisation as opposed to top down growth led by the senior management. Roobiks gives employees a way to express their interests and individual growth targets. This provides the project managers responsible for sourcing new projects with the necessary information to make better informed decisions.

HOW

Roobiks ensures a two way interaction between senior management, project managers and employees by making use of digital tools, as well as physical artefacts as conversation starters and means to provide necessary information. Roobiks identifies employees’ career trajectory and interests to provide them with the most suitable projects while also assisting senior managers and project managers to make better informed decisions.
