Change management and strategic human resource management
Government – NRM
THRL was engaged to assist with the ongoing restructuring process across HR, Finance, IT and two technical driven, highly regulated program units. The project involved a comprehensive review of all functions through work flow analysis, the design of jobs and subsequent implementation of the new structure resulting in the right people in the right places. Some staff were required to accept changed roles and responsibilities. This process involved considerable change in the way work was undertaken.
THRL successfully minimised the level of staff resistance to the changes by adopting an inclusive approach within the process and drawing on staff as ‘subject matter experts’ In the redesign of jobs The project was positively executed by reinforcing the advantages the change would bring to individual job enrichment and the overall performance capability of the organisation. Adopting this process and assisting in the design of an effective communication and change management strategy, made the transition process seamless.
