Human Resources (HR) Consulting Case Study
Our client reached for support setting up an operational Human Resources department and completing the hiring process four weeks prior to starting to trade. The challenge was to support the small team of staff already appointed, interview and hire for 50 new positions across many levels, set the tone and culture for the organisation, and review/create policies to meet HR compliance requirements. Our work needed to ensure the incoming HR team had the structure in place to serve the current and future state of the company.
Brannigans was briefed and asked to engage in the work and the very next day we were able to commit 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, assess 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 offered and negotiated contracts for new hires.
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 – as we stepped out, they stepped in and so the new company came into reality.
