Business Performance

BlueInk builds effective and sustainable business performance around strategies which are aligned to the individual vision and objectives of each client.

Working in genuine partnership with owners, investors and managers, we help them to crystallise their vision; to diagnose their current position; to develop the strategies required to help them reach those goals – and then to work side by side with each stakeholder against a defined plan to execute those strategies constantly reviewing and reshaping throughout each phase of the project to successful completion.

Our solutions are hands-on as well as strategic. So as well as helping you to crystallise your vision and define your proposition, we’ll take ownership of tactical initiatives such as increasing your headcount (see Recruitment 2 Recruitment), supporting client-facing business development activity, overseeing tendering operations, performance managing your teams (see People Development) and implementing improved financial tools and systems to aid business management

Underpinning our work is a fundamental belief that a business plan without timescales offers little more than good intentions. No business has the luxury of time – in our experience there’s only ever a limited window of opportunity to maximise the success rate of a turnaround project, and stagnating businesses need growth before good people move on.

That’s why everything we do is built around timed critical paths detailing exactly what needs to be achieved – and by when. Whatever your business vision, BlueInk offers 100% recruitment sector expertise which can help you achieve:

  • Turnaround strategies to put your business back on the sustainable path to growth;
  • Growth strategies that turn your small and / or stagnating businesses into the success story your hard work deserves; or
  • Disposal strategies which not only identify, qualify and engage committed buyers and facilitate sales, but successfully re-engineer your business to extract maximum value for the benefit of all stakeholders.
