Case study

Human Resources (HR) Consulting Case Study

The Challenge:

Our client reached out for support in setting up an operational Human Resources department and completing the hiring process four weeks prior to starting to trade. Our role was to ensure the incoming HR team had the structure in place to serve the current and future state of the company. To do that we needed to support the small incumbent team, interview and hire for 50 new positions across different levels, set the tone and culture for the organisation, and review/create policies to meet HR compliance requirements.

The Solution:

Brannigans was engaged and briefed and the next day we brought two full time team members into the organisation for a seven-week period. This allowed our team to become immersed in the business and get the required exposure to assess the current state of the organisation and the gaps, and prepare for a seamless transition to the incoming HR team. We built an induction programme tailored to the organisation, continually revisited the initial organisation structure for validity with the existing and growing team, and negotiated contracts for new hires.

The Result:

The new company started trading with all the required roles hired. They started Day 1 with a comprehensive on-boarding programme and a set of policies and procedures to hit the ground running.

Brannigans was able to hand over a full HR solution to the new HR department so that as we stepped out, they stepped in seamlessly and got to work.
