Mergers And Reorganisations: How Can You Come Out on Top?

Mergers and other reorganisations are fraught with difficulty but also ripe with opportunity. Your role in the process should be to add value at all stages, and by doing that you not only are helping your colleagues, but also enhancing your own standing in the (new) organisation.

Often HR/P&C gets involved operationally once the high level organisation design is done (either by external consultants, or by a ‘secret’ team in the organisation). But then you are faced with two challenges:

1. How do we manage the process of change?

2. How do we communicate the right information, at the right time, in the right way, to the right people?

Get this right, and you and your team can be the heroes of the reorganisation process, and be placed well in the ‘new’ organisation.

And this is how we enable your success:

​HCR works with your team to design clear, confidential and compelling organisation charts – highlighting the key changes that are under consideration. These charts are created and refreshed automatically from a combination of ‘as is’ and ‘to be’ data, taken from your existing HR systems, combined with the proposed changes.

These charts can be used with executives, line management, unions and team leaders. The charts are interactive, showing changes made in consultation in real time, and enabling the proposed organisation to be instantly and securely shared with stakeholders and decision makers.

In addition, you can also add value during the difficult process of the execution of the merger, acquisition or reorganisation.

AUTOMATICALLY produced and securely distributed organisation  charts, including the key metrics for measurement of progress – and of your success – will support the process every step of the way. 

In this way, the election of the change, while not exactly painless, will at least show respect and empathy for those involved, as well as protecting the enterprise from the worst effects of major surgery.

So, before you move too far down the reorganisation track, contact HCR, and get ready to add value every step of the way.
