Don't just take our word for it, see what our clients have to say . . . Organisational Strategy Testimonials
Established in 2018, our client is a privately owned manufacturer managed by the 2 founders that have grown rapidly in a niche market, and by 2023 had over 50 full-time employees across 2 sites. The business already had some basic contracts and policies in place, but the directors identified the need for more strategic advice around people as they planned for the next stage of growth.
What We Did
We worked with the directors over 2 x 2-hour sessions to understand the business plan and provide advice and guidance on organisational strategy. This meant reviewing staff turnover rates, the organisation chart, and proactively planning for the right roles in the right places. We also reviewed the directors’ roles and worked to create a solid management structure so that they could concentrate on leading the business. We then discussed managing future changes in a controlled way and offered coaching to the directors on how to communicate this internally.
An immediate outcome was that the directors felt that they had defined areas of responsibility. The business had a solid plan for growth in the workforce and a clear organisation chart with line managers in place for each function.
We planned for existing staff to evolve into required job roles – removing the need to hire 3 new and expensive job roles and identified other areas of cost saving through outsourcing rather than hiring. For future recruitment, we clarified the job descriptions to ensure these were supporting the overall achievement of business goals.
