As part of a merger a proposal was developed to close the client’s first UK office with 250 employees affected with relocation options to four other UK and international office locations.
The client was keen to engage with an external HR consulting supplier as all of their HR team was impacted by the office closure. They needed a supplier who understood the commercial challenges they were facing as well as the ability to flex their style and approach so that all employees felt supported and engaged with throughout the entire consultation process.
“We had worked with Connor before on a big company reorganisation. They delivered against the brief then which gave us confidence that they could deliver again this time round. We trusted them to provide a turnkey solution on the A-Z of this complex relocation programme that included project management, data tracking and case management.” said the client’s head of HR.
We listened carefully to the complex brief and formed a Connor programme team that fitted the exact needs of the business. We gave the client confidence that we could deliver on this programme as our programme team built robust project plans, KPI’s with contingency plans in place, if needed. We also ensured that all stakeholders were listened to and we demonstrated that we could deliver on the task elements as well as showing that we could adopt an empathetic approach to all affected employees.
