Organisations need to know that their employees and their structures and processes are aligned with, and complement, their business strategy or corporate plan. Strategies also need to be agile enough to change and flex when other forces, be they internal or external, cause an organisation to adjust its current direction. We can assess how well an organisation's structure is aligned with its business strategy, and how it measures up against best practice in its sector, through a process known as an Organisational Review. We also work with clients to assist them through all types of change including restructuring, TUPE transfers and mergers and acquisitions.
We are experienced in carrying out organisational reviews that focus on one particular aspect of an organisation, or look at all the people related aspects including structures, roles, policies and procedures, working practices, tools and equipment, and skills profiles. We focus on aligning the organisation to its business strategy and also ensuring it benefits from our knowledge of other comparable organisations. Based on our experience we provide a level of independent insight that is invaluable when making key decisions about how an organisation can achieve its future strategy.
Many employees become apprehensive about the prospect of any significant change at work, which is natural. We assist our clients by developing comprehensive change management action plans, defining the change that needs to take place and all the required actions to get there, in a measured and timely way. We also train and develop leaders and coach line managers in effective techniques to manage change within their teams.
Restructuring is a fact of life in today’s fast-moving workplace. But the way in which it’s handled can make a massive difference to the impact that it has on the organisation. Our consultants have years of experience of managing restructuring processes and they use this working knowledge to guide clients through restructuring and redundancy processes, maximising positive impacts and minimising disruption.
When organisations and teams come together it’s critical that this is done in the right way. Not only to protect the organisation from legal challenge, but also to minimise the disruption to the existing workforce, ensure that productivity is not adversely impacted, and capture any potential synergies. We are experienced in handling all the people related aspects of bringing organisations together, and draw on our practical experience to make the process smooth and efficient for our clients.
