Building business success through people


We work in close partnership with you to deliver people and performance solutions for sustainable organisational success.


TalentWorks Organisational Consulting


TalentWorks Organisational Consulting is a boutique, Adelaide-based business consultancy with national scope and the personalised attention of a smaller firm. We focus on the people side of business, providing a broad range of evidence-based services to help organisations build business success through their people.

Bringing our fresh thinking and consultative approach, we act as trusted advisors to organisations – large and small, across the private, public and non-profit sectors. We develop consulting solutions for individuals and client organisations that are customised and impactful. Our solutions foster positive change at each level – individual, team and organisational.

Founded by Joan Underhill, Director and Organisational Psychologist, TalentWorks Organisational Consulting is an ethical consulting firm that is committed to delivering high-quality, tailored consulting and coaching solutions.

Our Vision and Purpose:

Our vision is for TalentWorks Organisational Consulting to be a highly-regarded professional services business with a strong reputation for delivering clients’ results on time and as promised. We will be recognised as an independent and ethical firm that uses best practice, evidence-based solutions to assist people and organisations to realise their potential.

We will achieve this through close collaboration with our clients, providing them with customised, high-quality services that support their goals and strategies, and help them to boost their people performance in order to build sustainable organisational success.

Our client Promise:

•    We are determined to deliver projects of the highest quality
•    We will bring the best ideas and current thinking to designing solutions
•    We hold ourselves to a higher standard of professionalism
•    We are easy to engage and work with
•    We are driven by our clients’ purposes
•    We do not make promises we cannot deliver
•    We do not compromise our independence for short-term gain

Our Approach:


We work closely with clients on their issues and challenges. While we will step-up and get the job done on our own if the circumstances demand it, we believe that in most cases the best way to achieve successful and sustainable results is through client collaboration, co-development and commitment.


Delivering sustainable, measurable results to our clients is fundamental to everything we do. We deliver quality results because we work in close partnership with you to identify and recommend the best solutions – your success is our success.


We operate with the highest integrity and abide by the Principles and Guidelines of the Psychology Board of Australia and the Australian Psychological Society’s Code of Ethics. Our clients can rest assured that we maintain their privacy and confidentiality in-line with legislation and relevant guidelines.


TalentWorks Organisational Consulting is one of few independent professional firms capable of advising on best-fit, customised solutions. Unencumbered by vendor alliances, there is no conflict of interest in the advice we provide our clients, giving you peace of mind that we operate as a fully-independent advisor in making recommendations.
