“I believe every person is capable of greatness.”

Leah Akoka

Founder, Wall Street

Culture is everything

At Wall Street, we believe that a strong corporate culture is the foundation for ongoing business success. Our PeopleEconomics® framework can help any organisation, big or small, to grow their people and strengthen their culture.

Immersion and understanding

By immersing ourselves into a client’s business, we can ensure our goals are completely aligned. This allows us to gain a clear understanding not only of the business, but also what our collective success looks like.

Using PeopleEconomics®, we will ensure your people live the values and goals of your organisation, and that new team members will both complement and build your culture.

Ultimately we challenge and inspire people, to ensure that nothing stands in the way of their greatness and in turn their success.

A little history

Wall Street was founded in 2001 by Leah Akoka, formerly a highly respected people leader at Dodo Internet. As time went on, Wall Street has evolved into a leading Human Resources supplier, with clients across more than 15 industries.

PeopleEconomics® is a 12 point framework designed by Wall Street that captures the effects of psychological, cognitive, emotional, cultural, and workplace factors that impact the mindset & decisions of individuals and business leaders; and ultimately the performance of the business.

Understand Why

In a purpose driven economy your people need to know why you do what you do. They also need to know why they come to work each day.

Own the Business Values and Goals

Aligning your team with your values and goals begins with the leaders. The right communication, at the right time is key. Hold them accountable.

Know Your People

Beyond the social interactions, know their skills, passions, drivers and most of all their potential. Know your gaps.

Make It Ok To Make a Mistake

Successful businesses allow ideas to flourish, to trial initiatives, and to support the entrepreneurs who drive growth through fresh thinking.

Redefine Productivity

Productivity should not be about taking less time to do the usual tasks, but to find new ways of doing things that solve the bigger problems. Learn to make more time.

Reward the Right Behaviour

Set behavioural expectations clearly, and reward them. Set the example and cull the behaviour that limits your growth, no exceptions.

Awaken the Potential

Understand what drives your people. Set goals and raise the bar. Inspire. Anything is possible.

Anticipate Change

The right communication is essential. How are your people going to react to change? How do we ensure they feel ownership?

Make It Ok To Be Authentic

Create an environment for individuality and acceptance, and your people will bring their 
best game.

Everybody Is An Ambassador

Your people are the best voice for your business. When they are saying ‘we’ instead of ‘them’ they become your passionate advocates.

Make Doing Business Simple

Bringing behavioural economics and efficient systems into the workplace helps your people remain in touch, add more value, and love what they do.

Measure Successes and Constantly Evolve

A mindset of constant improvement and keeping a finger on the pulse of results will engage your people more and help drive results.
