Discover Balanced HR
We help leaders in small businesses build a company that's flexible, effective and engaging, not slowed down by outdated corporate ways and unnecessary hierarchy.
I'm Riikka, the founder of Companies in Balance. As a HR leader I have delivered fast scale-up, business and culture transformation and built HR functions from scratch in a variety of B2B sectors, such as technology, life sciences and professional services.
At Companies in Balance we combine a commercial understanding and comprehensive HR expertise with up-to-date research and a dose of creativity. We work collaboratively with your own team to craft solutions that work in real life, in your environment.
Companies in Balance was born when I saw businesses wasting energy and diluting their success due to extremes and blind spots in how they operate with people. Not to mention de-motivating employees and, at worst, affecting their wellbeing.
This is why, even in business, I believe holistic thinking leads to health!
By looking at the full picture, we can adjust people, culture and leadership towards
balance: a dynamic state of optimum function.
When your company is out of balance...
Missing the right HR solutions to drive our strategy and culture.
Time wasted on unclear priorities and disjointed initiatives.
Struggle to recruit, retain and develop the talent we need.
Half-hearted performance and settling for the status quo.
The truth is, when companies lack balance, employees are unable to focus their energy on what matters most.
By aligning your HR with strategy and culture,
you build the company you want to be:
Leadership practices that drive business goals and target culture.
A clear common direction and coherent priorities.
Becoming the company where people want to work.
Better performance, adaptability and creativity from everyone.
We have been working on our internal company goals and HR processes, on keeping the culture we want we as we get bigger, our contracts and policies so that they better reflect who we are and where we are going.
We're launching new ways of peer buddying, 360 degree feedback, positive accountability and more.
I can't recommend Riikka and Companies in Balance enough!
