Our expertise will drive your organisation forward 

The DEJA Team

At DEJA we believe in evidence based practice. Fads and gimmicks are all very well but latching onto the latest buzzword or implementing a trendy intervention won’t build you a sustainable business.

Evidence based practice is about accessing the most appropriate information from:

  • The scientific literature - from psychology, management and business.
  • Your organisation - organisations are often data rich AND information poor.
  • Your stakeholders - in particular, their values and concerns.
  • Our professional expertise - having worked from the Boardroom to the Shop Floor, internationally and locally. We understand the subtleties of your culture.

Evidence based practice ensures we work with our clients to get the best value from their diverse workforce.
