Who we are and what we deliver
We work with our clients to improve the delivery of services, save costs and prove impact. We do this mainly through strategic planning, management support and evaluation. We have a strong reputation with the international network of social value practitioners, through Social Value UK and Social Value International. We build an organisation’s Contract Readiness to have a business with market credibility, financial strength, internal delivery skills and skills to bid for, win and deliver contracts effectively.
Clear - but never over-simplified
Why use three paragraphs when three sentences would do the same job? And why spend time on clever graphs and charts which show our computing skills - and little else? By using Plain English and Clear Graphics, we get to the heart of the matter.
Practical - but never ordinary
When you’re choosing a partner, you’re obviously going to demand robust research skills and sound methods. That’s a given. However, what sets Hall Aitken apart is our insistence on applying real world experience to every project, to illuminate the process and the findings.
Innovative - but never rash
New tools. Fresh approaches. Workshops. Focus groups. Skills transfers. For all the novel ideas we bring to a project, there’s always a clear focus on the end result. In other words, style never triumphs over substance.
