The hatching of Hatch

Hatch Solutions was born in late 2019 when we saw organisations struggling to keep up with the changing nature of work and retain their most valuable asset – their people.

As a leader, you know there’s an easier way to do things. Trouble is, you’re way too busy to identify all the issues, make an action plan and implement all the changes you need to make. That’s where we come in.

We’re all about working with you through the challenges so we can support you every step of the way. We never dump a report on your desk and run. We’re here to help you understand our advice and recommendations so you can make meaningful change for your business.

People + tools + data – jargon = success

At Hatch, we have the tools and the people to navigate change seamlessly. We use data-driven insights, shared in a way you understand so you know what’s happening and what your next steps are. This is a jargon and buzzword free zone.

We also hold a range of internationally recognised qualifications and certifications including; Prosci, Lean Six Sigma, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and EQ-i 2.0® Emotional Intelligence Inventory, and leverage various others tools to get the job done.

We help you to create the work environment that you want, a business that thrives because its people are supported, motivated and empowered.
