A friendly family run business, Harrisons wished to establish firm succession plans for the future management team within the finance and administration team which ensured growth and allowed for investment in talent. All with the aim of future-proofing the business for another 100 years of trading.
Solve supported the Finance Director in the following ways:
Creating the business rationale and creation of organisational structure
Drafting the communication plans
Supporting in the consultation process and scripting meetings
Drafting of documentation including job descriptions
Managing adjustments post consultation and redundancy discussions
Recruiting and selecting vacant roles that had been defined in the new structure.
Within one month the restructure had been confirmed as complete and employees and the management team were able to start in the new roles. A robust process which accounted for employees views throughout; resulting in an improved final organisational structure which allowed for extra and cost effective coverage at peak periods. Additionally, through searching and scoping the roles out thoroughly Solve were able to fill the much needed vacancies using initiative and responsive recruitment practices.
Testimonial from Kate Thomson, Finance Director at Harrison Ford:
I just wanted to drop you this quick mail to say how much I have enjoyed working with you both through this period of change at Harrisons.
I’m really pleased I found SolveHR on Google and you have ‘held our hand’ through a tough time, one of the worst I can remember!
You have been both professional and open minded and your understanding of where we needed to get to has been excellent.
I am now looking forward to having our new recruits on Monday – a new team and new challenges that should be workable.
Going forward, we would like to discuss at some point how we engage you permanently as our HR consultants.
