Ingenia Consulting is a management consulting firm that solves issues related to the economy, the labour market and human resources. We are a trusted advisor to leading businesses, governments and educational institutions.
We like finding solutions
We work with leading organizations across the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. Our experience and knowledge allow us to address issues in a practical way. We have deep functional and industry expertise and can work across North America and internationally. We are passionate about taking on challenges that matter to our clients.
We work with our clients as colleagues. We do this to help build internal support, get to the heart of the matter and provide recommendations that clients can implement. We bring out the capabilities of clients to fully participate in the research process and lead the ongoing work.
We are a network of experts
We draw upon a team of experts with integrity, sharp analytical minds, creativity and the ability to work with people at all levels of an organization.
Associates who work with Ingenia join a team bound by a shared set of values and a culture of support, trust, respect and integrity.
We are hands-on and practical
Working with our clients on challenging issues requires deep industry and functional expertise. We invest significant time and effort in developing and renewing a knowledge base that offers unique perspectives and insights to our clients.
We believe that the best consulting takes place “on the ground”, interacting directly with the people affected. We think that the best solutions most often are created by integrating our knowledge of leading practices with our clients’ innate understanding of their own issues. We deliver ideas that they can implement.
Our mission is to help our clients find innovative, enduring, and measureable solutions and to build a great firm that attracts, excites, develops and retains exceptional people.
We believe we will be successful if our clients are successful.
We are a values-driven organization. For us this means to always:
- Celebrate excellence
We deliver what we promise and add value beyond the expected. We achieve excellence through innovation, learning and a focus on client needs.
- Value teamwork
All of us are smarter than one of us. Effective teamwork requires honesty, respect and open communication. We use a structured problem-solving approach, where all opinions and options are considered, researched and analyzed carefully before we make recommendations to our clients.
- Behave as professionals
Uphold absolute integrity. Show respect to local customs and culture, without compromising our integrity.
- Keep our client information confidential
We don’t reveal sensitive information. We focus on making our clients successful.
- Tell the truth as we see it
We stay independent and will speak truth to power, regardless of the popularity of our views or their effect on our fees. We have the courage to develop and champion unconventional solutions to problems. In this way we build internal support, get to real issues and reach practical recommendations.
- Deliver the best of our firm to every client as cost effectively as we can
We expect our team to spend client and firm resources as if they were their own.
We operate as one firm. We maintain consistently high standards for service and our associates so that we can always bring the best team of experts—with the broadest range of industry and functional experience—to bear on every engagement.
Our Values are governed by a Code of Conduct that ensures a framework for ethical decision making and mutual respect.
