Consulting

We believe that employee experience drives organizational success. With that in mind, our programs start with understanding your people and your culture, which allows us to customize our programs to meet the needs of your organizations.

At Hummingbird Humanity, we are building the type of culture that we partner with organizations to create for themselves—a community aligned around thebelief that leading people-first is core to the success of any endeavor. With diverse lived experiences, our team of experts works with you to develop an individualized approach to your organization’s specific needs.

Through our unique methodology, which combines HR + DEI practices while infusing head and heart thinking, we work with small to medium-sized companies to help you foster humanity in your workplace—always beginning with the voices of your employees. Our relationships with a broad community of consultants, who join us in honoring the importance of intersectionality and the power of storytelling, makes Hummingbird Humanity a distinctive partner to ignite the possibility of your people.

Our consulting services fall into four categories:

Assess

Our intersectionality-based approach looks at employee experience through multiple dimensions of identity.

DEI DNA Assessment

We’ll assess your organization through multiple lenses to take an in-depth look at where you are today – an essential step towards creating an environment where employees feel seen, valued, and heard. 

Data Collection Channels:  

  • Interviews (up to 12 one-hour senior leader interviews)
  • Focus Groups (up to five 90-minute focus groups with up to 12 people each + demographics)
  • An electronic survey* (up to 12 employee experience rating questions and 1 free response question)
  • Company materials review 

The readout will include reports and employee quotes – which illuminate your current state through head and heart. We also include areas of strength, areas of concern, and recommendations for next steps. The insights help inform your actions and communications, ensuring you feel confident you are taking the next steps to create an inclusive environment for all your people.

Collectively, these engagements will continue to foster your commitment to creating an environment where your employees thrive.

Overview:

  • Intended for groups of 10 – 12
  • A 10-session program with 90-minute sessions

ERG Design and Development

Understanding that your employees are the heart and soul of your company,  creating safe spaces for them to feel seen and heard is key to the DEI journey.  While Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are often touted for providing a positive environment where employees of different genders, nationalities, and backgrounds have equal opportunity to succeed, they can also be a launching pad for allyship, business innovation, and leadership development.  Whether your company is at the beginning of its ERG journey, or needs help with a reset or “level up,” we can guide you every step of the way.

Example Steps:

  • Garnering support from Top management and / or employees
  • Evaluating your company’s needs and setting goals
  • Promoting ERGs
  • Measuring Success
