Whatever sector an organisation belongs to, the relationship between workplace, people and productivity has never been more complex, or more important. Arup helps organisations that are working hard to deliver long-term, major projects in a world of constant change and ambiguity. 

Our People and Organisations team helps clients to revisit core assumptions, define their business needs and evolve into the high performance organisations they need to become. We help clients to align their real estate, workplace design, and operational wellbeing.

How we can help you

Operating model, organisation design and governance

We develop fit-for-purpose operating models, organisational structures and governance models that enable our clients to deliver on their strategic and operational objectives.

Culture, transformation and change

We support our clients through every aspect of transformation, from articulating a vision for the future and then putting the right foundations in place to mitigate risk and enable lasting and sustainable change.

Team alignment, effectiveness and collaboration

We help our clients align individuals, teams and organisations to achieve high performance across multiple contexts and levels of complexity, from business-as-usual situations to highly complex, multi-party environments. 

Leadership, talent and capability

We enable our clients to lead across boundaries by building and integrating talent and capabilities across an entire enterprise (including owners, investors and suppliers where relevant) to work as one team and optimise value to the entire system.

Resilience and wellbeing

We work with our clients to promote wellbeing and resilience at all levels and contexts during complex and stressful situations often encountered in times of transformation, systems change, or concentrated programmes of work. 

Organisational assurance

We help our investor clients to understand the people and organisations dimensions of potential investments, acquisitions and divestments. We work across the deal lifecycle, from pre-deal due diligence to post-deal integration, separation, using our expertise in organisational design, culture, leadership and complex asset development.
