KLB Group's CSR initiatives

Aware of businesses' impact on the environment and the role that they can play as an agent of change in civil society, in 2009 KLB Group launched the eKiLiBre program, which aims to bring together the various environmental, social and economic actions carried out within the framework of the group's CSR policy.

On a daily basis, on all its projects and missions, KLB Group undertakes to communicate the values ​​that form the DNA of the group: pragmatism, efficiency and responsibility.

 

Environmental protection:

In July 2010, KLB Group signed the Global Compact,, an initiative promoted by the UN in July 2000. The companies and organisations signing this agreement, from the world of work and civil society, undertake to align their operations and strategies with ten universal principles concerning human rights, labour standards, the environment and the fight against corruption.

Culture and values

What is Kulture?

A company culture is, in essence, intangible and therefore very difficult to describe. Culture is not decreed, but rather it is lived from day to day. It is the sum of all our individual and collective behaviours, our habits, our rituals, our ways of interacting, our tacit and explicit rules, i.e. everything that constitutes the way we work together.
Our culture is entrepreneurial and operational.

We trust our collaborators, which helps develop responsibility and autonomy in our teams. We encourage initiative and risk-taking and accept failures. Work is like skiing: if you don't fall over, you make no progress.
We are operations-focused and committed to action, speed, rapid testing and adaptation. We have no preconceived criteria, since we know that experience is often different to the initial idea.

And our values?

Culture is inevitably marked by common values. Obviously, everyone has their own values, but that does not stop us from striving to express the common basis of the values ​​that unite us and guide the attitudes we wish to promote within the company. At KLB Group, these business values ​​are Performance, la responsibility andPragmatism.
 

Performance is our original value. Like most entrepreneurs, we are terrified of the status quo and want to contribute to changing the world for the better. We seek this ambition for progress and we value all our collaborators. This ambition also implies a certain degree of humility, since any way forward begins by recognising that we can do things better. It also requires a measure of performance, because without measurement it is not possible to know whether progress is being made. And systematically seeking to measure and improve performance, we also develop our capacity to engage: with ourselves, among ourselves within the team and with our partners, customers and suppliers. This is an extremely valuable asset to the company.!
 

Responsibility, goes both ways. It is expected and accepted.
We place our trust in our collaborators. We entrust them with the maximum responsibility they require and are willing to take on, i.e. lots of responsibility, because they have a great deal of common sense and a great deal of autonomy. We grant them freedom and resources, they find solutions to most of the problems themselves. To do this, we always need to state clearly who is responsible for what.
And, undoubtedly, the responsibility is taken on. We must be worthy of the trust placed in us, which begins by stating things as they are, without self-deception and without misleading our colleagues. They say that it is at difficult times that great leaders are recognised. And, in general, it is at difficult times when we recognise those who are responsible people, those who take on their responsibilities. And from day to day, responsibility is simply a matter of respecting others, be they colleagues, customers or suppliers, and thinking long term and in the general interest when acting and making decisions..
 

Pragmatism,begins with the knowledge and acceptance of reality. We are big supporters of the famous quote by Yogi Berra, the famous baseball player and manager: "In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is." We are always seeking information as close to the ground as possible, without preconceptions, and while always bearing in mind that the difference is in the detail. And above all, we avoid idealising situations. Things never go as planned. The resources we would like to have are not always possible. Pragmatism means permanently adapting to the situation in order to maximise the resources available. And keeping what works. It is a true talent.
    
We are firmly committed to our values ​​and our corporate culture. We seek to preserve and develop them, because we are convinced that they make us all more effective and stronger, and allow us to grow and enjoy working together. And we ensure that management is exemplary and consistent with our values ​​because these values ​​are transmitted only through action and leading by example.

Talents

At KLB Group, our mission is to identify, attract and develop Smart Implementors.

Smart Implementors combine rational and relational intelligence with the ability to execute.

Many companies, such as the educational system, tend to overestimate rational and emotional intelligence. These intelligences are important, but at KLB Group we value practical intelligence above all, which is what allows us to realise our ideas in the most efficient manner.

Following Goethe, we believe that "truly great talents only thrive with action." We prefer results and action to ideas, however great they may be. For us, ideas are only a means to an end, with varying degrees of relevance, but only add value if they are implemented.

Our mission? To implement your projects

 

We do not merely advise, we also implement your projects alongside you.

We take on two types of products.

  •    Improvement projects: we assist you in taking a leap forward in operational performance, earning 10% or 20% more, obtaining cash or implementing a new organisational structure and guaranteeing the transition process, for example, by establishing and transforming shared-services centres.

 

For all these projects, we quickly mobilise a team of experts with different roles.

We provide and integrate advisory know-how (benchmarking, analysis, design) and project management, as well as operational know-how (monitoring and execution of business processes), to successfully implement your project.

We are fast, efficient and flexible.

Working with you, we will find the most efficient way for you to achieve your goals.

We know how to adapt our remuneration model according to your challenges: management, fixed price, activity unit or success fees.

Since the beginning, our customers have told us that we excel in implementation.

Our main strength is, without doubt, our team: the Smart Implementors!

Professional services

How to optimize your performance in an environment that demands ever more flexibility?

Financial services

Historic crisis, industry consolidation, regulatory constraints, new dynamic players, etc. How do we ensure growth in this environment?

The new players and major regulatory changes due to successive crises have greatly changed the ecosystem.
We must rethink the business model and competitive position by adapting to the wave of digitalization while taking into account budgetary constraints.

Therefore, we must confront the following issues:

  • The digital era has led to the emergence of new players. What will their impact be?
  • What will the industry of tomorrow look like?
  • What stance should be taken on the new regulations?

KLB Group supports you in preparing your operating projects and implementing your transformation projects:

  • Evolution of Information Systems

Our excellent knowledge of the financial services, as well as our international presence, allows us to support you with a flexible solution tailored to your needs.

Our flexible business model allows us to adapt our intervention to each issue, from a simple intervention (technical assistance) to a more complex project (project team with monitoring of deliveries, UO, etc.).

The result? Project guarantee, achieving the goals set and increasing the skills of your teams.

Public sector

Increase in charges, budget cuts, reduction of subsidies, etc. How to get organized?

You face a fearsome economic equation: trapped between rising costs and reduced subsidies, you must meet the expectations of your clients.

The reduction of costs becomes paramount and increased performance becomes essential to achieve positive results and maintain investments. The speed and agility of the actions should be optimal to ensure their success.

Therefore, the questions that arise are:

  • How to deal with provisioning reductions?
  • How to achieve sustainable savings quickly?
  • How to speed up the increase in skills of the teams?

KLB Group supports you in implementing your transformation projects and conducting your operational projects:

KLB Group supports territorial bodies in controlling their operating and investment costs by combining consultancy and implementation.

We provide methods, tools and accredited practices; we install them and then implement them.

  • Identify the real challenges and monitor the cost reduction by moving from an accounting-based logic to practicing control management;
  • Apply a privileged performance instrument, purchasing, encouraging the contribution of suppliers;
  • Speed up performance plans by releasing productivity tracks through mutualization.

Thanks to our local presence, many territorial bodies (municipalities, general councils, regions, etc.) have placed their trust in us and we have helped them improve their practices to better control their spending.

Health and wellness

The hospital sector's recovery clashes with the compartmentalization of organizations and with the difficulty in implementing the deep changes that have been imposed

The numerous changes that occur simultaneously in the health sector have affected the financial balance of health centres:

  • Evolution of finance
  • Evolution of the treatment and care offering
  • Reducing the number of hospital beds to benefit an increased number of outpatients
  • Increasingly stringent legal obligations, etc.

The changes initiated are beginning to bear fruit, but at a rate that does not make it possible to reach the targets within the deadlines. These are different in nature and, therefore, require a tailored approach to be able to address the major challenges, such as:

  • How to buy and from which suppliers, or with which purchasing centres, should we sign contracts? How to achieve profits with purchasing through a vision based on overall cost?
  • How to create and maintain synergies between doctors and buyers?
  • How to integrate technical innovations within the logistics value chain?

The need to control costs at health centres or, for some of them, the need to return to equilibrium, requires a transformation of the organizations and a search for synergies between the support services and the care and assistance services. This change is conditioned by the importance of guaranteeing an impeccable service for patients from start to finish. The compartmentalization of hospital services would yield significant improvements in performance and, at the same time, facilitate change management.

 

KLB Group supports you in implementing your transformation projects and operational projects

Since 1998, KLB Group has supported its clients in the health and wellness industry in their transformation projects and in the implementation of their operational projects, with special emphasis on purchasing, hospital logistics, production and finance.

KLB acts as a facilitator in the decompartmentalization of hospital services (administrative, technical and care) through collaborative actions that make it possible, in turn, to assist the managers in their administrative role and ensure the involvement of the support services, treatment and care services, the medical staff and social partners.A cross-cutting approach by service line that facilitates interfacing, increases profit potential, and makes it possible to apply indicators and perform more appropriate monitoring.

Support in the transformation of activities to redefine your contribution and your interfaces (service agreements) by rethinking your organization and its operations.
An operation by service line that generates logistical and organizational benefits in purchasing, and leads to governance and security of the common goals.
