International organisations dominate the marketplaces and start to leave the consumer with restricted choice, if any. For example, have you found yourself caught in the trap of always using Google or Amazon? Or let’s look at Trump, the 45th President of the United States. He was voted in by Americans, but exactly how global will the impact of his actions be?

Whether you agree with it or not, the UK has voted to leave the EU, pushing for us to have more control over the ways of our country.  There are also examples of strong opposition to takeover bids such as the recent Kraft Heinz’s failed £115bn bid for Unilever, which might otherwise have contributed to globalization.

In our field we have seen Occupational Psychology firms being acquired by larger companies, which in turn have been acquired by a larger company and so on. It would be madness to be oblivious to the benefits of large international consultancies, such as pooled resources and offices across the globe.  But maybe clients feel priced out of the market in using the ‘big boys’, or simply prefer the vibe of a smaller consultancy that is a little more friendly and accessible.  For instance have you ever been in the situation where a consultancy’s slick communicator pitches for work with you, and then you never see them again?

At Work Psychology Hub, with a close network of associates, we deliver the work we take on. We believe in offering our areas of expertise, keeping it friendly and professional, and building great relationships with our clients – many of whom have used our services for years. If, like the government, you are keen to do business with smaller service providers, then get in touch with us to see what we can do for you.
