Home > Services > HR Transformation
In highly complex HR environments, where causes can be nuanced and effects long-term, successful transformation is all the more difficult to achieve. The complexities are multiplied by the many different ways HR affects every aspect of your business. Yet it can deliver great value too – from reducing inefficiencies and costs through to focusing your workforce more effectively on improving the performance of your business.
You cannot afford to miss out on the opportunities or get the task wrong. Drawing on our deep experience of major HR transformations, we can help.
We help our clients across three main areas of HR transformation: setting HR strategy, driving through business change in HR, and delivering systems and process changes.
We tend to concentrate on high value, complex HR challenges - for example, larger systems-driven change in back office processing, or smaller but equally complex projects in specialist areas such as talent and resourcing.
You might be doing a number of projects at once, creating a big coordination challenge across business areas and an important storytelling and stakeholder management requirement. Or maybe you want to make a substantial change in one area, for example overhauling your learning and development across your business around the world. Either way, we can help – from working with you to set strategy through to planning and helping to lead the transformation.
We bring critical skills and experience to help you set direction and define and sell in change across the business. Our independent outside perspective and our skills in analysing, codifying and telling the story can make a big difference for you. With our help for example, you can not just describe a transformation but connect it in strong and positive ways to your business.
We will work closely with you to mobilise and implement change, applying our deep understanding of the particular nuances and complexities of HR transformation.
We are well aware, for example, of the challenges of driving through business change from within the HR function, where persuasion is everything.
Our real understanding of the function - its characteristics, role, issues, trends and developments - means we talk the language of HR. At the same time, we bring our core project management rigour and skills to bear in a way that fits in with your particular HR environment. We also apply intellectual sharpness to help shape and tell the story, and critical stakeholder management skills - so the right people across HR and the wider business are properly engaged and support the transformation.
