Business Redesign and Restructure
Businesses evolve all the time, mostly reacting to external or internal influences but sometimes because they are leading change within their sector. Influences could be political, economical, legal, social or technological, the reasons are many and varied. Whatever the reason, it is always best to take a strategic review of what is right for your business so that you can make the changes required in a positive way, taking with you those in your business who you want to retain, and parting company fairly and lawfully with those you don't.
Having worked with many businesses over the 24 years of our existence, CHaRM is able to provide independent, strategic input to ensure that the change that is being proposed is right for the business, even if it is only to ask the obvious questions that people close to the business don't need to ask. If you are considering re-designing your business from scratch, or simply restructuring it, we can help. Our team of HR professionals provide not only the legal knowledge of restructuring and redundancy processes, but also the human element, to make sure that the end result is hassle free. Working with you as a partner, we will provide everything you need to make sure the outcome is a good one and the process is smooth. We can even provide the outplacement coaching for those people you will be parting company with to ease them on their journey. All of the following are included in our support, so you can choose the level of input you require to suit your needs:
- Scenario planning for longer term organisational design
- Assessing the most appropriate design or restructure to meet organisational need, identifying issues and opportunities
- Producing the business case for change
- Planning and applying the communication and consultation approach or approaches
- Preparing managers and business leaders for their roles in the change process
- Supporting individuals and teams through the change process
- Managing any redundancy process from end to end.

Their real strength is their ability to recognise the commercial demands we all face in running our businesses on a day-to-day basis."
