Finding your way from your company's main strategy to a good HR strategy is an important and often challenging task. Which HR processes should be prioritized based on the strategy, and how smartly are these processes designed?

During our 20 years as a company, we have seen how more and more people have become aware of the importance of HR as a function, and how HR helps manage the company's important resources; People. By putting HR and your company's employees on the agenda, you take a step into the future and make sure that you are a preferred employer both today and in the future.

Strategy

To actively support the business strategy, HR must be able to renew and change both its own department and the organization. The direction is defined through a clear and consistent HR strategy, a clear vision, values and strategic goals that encompass the entire organization.

We help you develop a consistent HR strategy and strategic plans to solve both short-term and long-term business needs. We advise you on how your company can stimulate, implement and follow up positive action patterns in order to perform aligned with your business goals.

HR Transformation

The term "HR transformation" has been used for several years by both HR managers and consultants. But must a process of change be a transformation? The key word is potential: HR has the potential to support your business' needs and create greater added value. HR transformation is what makes it possible, and which contributes to better results. Change creates value for a while, but it takes an HR transformation to land the optimal results.

Here's what we do:

Understand

We help you map and analyze today's HR function from three perspectives:

Outside: The employee experience

Client: Managers' needs

Inside: Obtaining desired effect and process efficiency.

Design

We help you design your HR function in a way that purposefully creates a unique employee experience, meets your managers' needs and works efficiently, especially through:

  • Design thinking
  • Organizational and process understanding
  • Digitalization
Change

We support your company's implementation of your HR transformation through:

  • Planning and project management
  • Execution on time and at cost
  • Follow-up on obtaining the desired effect

Today, any real HR transformation is based on the purpose of the HR function: mission, mandate and role. Then the question focuses on what the HR function should deliver and how this should be done. An HR transformation thus includes three dimensions: Why, What and How:

Why should we have an HR function?
  • What is the need for a dedicated HR function?
  • What role should HR play?
  • Should HR only support the managers?
  • Run your own strategic initiatives?
  • Provide advice on efficient work methods, organizational design and innovation?
What will HR deliver?
  • What will be the mission and what mandate will be included?
  • What should a dedicated HR function deliver?
  • What is included in the delivery?
  • How should a coherent HR delivery model look?
How will HR produce and deliver?
  • How will a traditional three-part delivery model with personnel policy and strategy, advice through HR business partners and administrative services manage new demands?
  • How should the assignment be carried out for the delivery to meet the needs?
  • How is the mission deployed for the needs to be met?
  • How is the HR function structured, designed, resourced, lead and managed in order to deliver with precision?
  • How should each component be designed?

When these questions are asked honestly, from the outside in, the answers provide a to-be state that is significantly different from the current situation. An HR transformation is required to fully succeed with the change.
