Human Centric Consulting & Advisory

Nurturing People, our human-centric initiative, ensures our tailor-made interventions enable human beings recognise every day as an opportunity to enhance their excellence. Working across levels, we help create incredible stimulated teams to produce favourable business outcomes.


As businesses are getting empowered by technologies - we are now seeing human ingenuity and creativity being given more and more emphasis.

There is an added curve in the Change Management challenges faced by any organization - from technology, processes, skills - and now to Human Excellence.

The knowledge that "Change is the only constant" will lead us to acknowledge the key drivers to success in these challenging times.

We at Avid Miner uphold an irrevocable conviction in the infinite potential of the human mind.

We believe that businesses must safeguard their employees' wellbeing and upskill them regularly to manoeuvre steadfast organizational development.

Change is happening in your organization.

This change could be driven by Technology, Processes, or Skills.

Managing change means managing the conversation between the people leading the change and those who are expected to implement the new strategies, managing the organizational context in which change can occur, and managing the emotional connections that are essential for any transformation.

Yet - change is intensely personal.

For change to occur in any organization, each individual must think, feel, or do something different.

You could be implementing technology to enable a more mobile workforce, reengineering a process to ensure regulatory compliance or pursuing an enterprise-wide transformation around customer experience.

You have Technology Companies, Process Consultants, L&D Interventionist organisations that efficiently manage all these.

There is a common denominator for achieving the intended outcomes of your initiative that does not get addressed efficiently - Your people.

We work with organisations to help develop and refine the Victory mindset of the workforce.

We also work closely with Technology Providers, Process Consulting Organisations, Skill Development and L&D Organisations by adding the Human Excellence dimension to their offerings to the corporate world.




Our approach of Nurturing People is completely Human-entric and we work with Organisations to create a blueprint that allows Employees to move from just being benefactors to actually being Nurturers - of Visions, Teams, Objectives, and Organisations.

  • DECODING HUMAN EXCELLENCE - Read Excerpt here...

    HR professionals could never have imagined the challenges that COVID-19 has brought. The uncertainties have crushed global economies, employees are in stressful situations, and HR professionals are trying their best to keep everything in perspective and aligned.

    The top priority for HR professionals is crisis response and how to keep their employees engaged and motivated. They need to set new guidelines and change policies if needed and provide the right communication channels and tools for remote work.

    They need to reframe job descriptions and expectations to accommodate part-time, full-time, and remote working definitions. New mechanisms will be required to monitor the productivity of employees working remotely.

    To enable their employees to work remotely, the performance management system may need a complete overhaul and revised policies and guidelines should address resource availability and utilization.

    HR managers will need to have innovative ideas to keep the organization ethos and culture vibrant - for existing employees as well as for new incumbents.

    While the importance of mental and emotional health has received attention in the past couple of years, the pandemic highlights how critical these initiatives are for employee well-being.

    As HR teams look to the future, they will realize that a lot many practices will change, redefining their roles. They would need to evolve and be perceived as caregivers for the employees and the organisations.
