Building a stronger team - how to restructure and plan for success post COVID-19

Over the last few weeks we have spoken to clients about Fast Forward, our commitment to help businesses plan for January 2021.

As part of Fast Forward, we collated a list of topics for our Ask the Expert sessions. ATE's to help owners and directors over the next six months as we look ahead to the this pinnacle time. We start with an area at the top of people's minds, restructuring the business. 

Building a stronger team - how to restructure and plan for success post COVID-19

Many businesses have taken recent events as an opportunity to take stock and reassess what they actually need to move their business forward successfully which has resulted in lots of discussions around restructuring and how to plan and implement these types of changes.

As a HR Director I have worked with many businesses to shape a new future for them and I am delighted to welcome Charly Melia to join me on our next Ask the Expert session on 21st July at 8.30 – 9.30am.

Charly Melia, Managing Director of Integrated Recruitment joins us this week as part of our focus on restructuring businesses as we head out of lockdown. Charly will bring her 17 years’ experience in implementing and managing recruitment strategies for businesses as we look at how to build stronger teams, equipped for the opportunities that lie ahead.

We will look at:

  • How to reassess what your business really needs in terms or roles / people / structure
  • How to recruit from within and utilise talent you already have
  • How to handle redundancy selection interviews with existing employees
  • The best way to plan recruitment post COVID-19

As always, we will be open to questions in advance as well as during the session on any topic related to restructure.

You are all doing a fantastic job guys and I just want to let you all know we would be in a real panic had it not been for the support and advice you have given us so far. I really don't know if we would have been in business at the end of this. But with your exceptional effort I feel much more confident that we can ride this storm and come out the other end. The decision we made as a business to procure your services has paid massive dividends.

Thank you from all at Dragonfly.

Sarah and the team at Quest have provided us HR support since January 2013.

Quest Consulting Services provided us with a comprehensive employment structure with contacts and a handbook and have been on hand to help me deal with the occasional issue I have faced with team members through their telephone support service.

As our personal Consultant, Sarah provides a quality, professional and complete service which is great value for money.

Sarah has transformed our HR and has introduced systems that have taken lots of hassle away from staffing issues within our company.

We have worked with Sarah and her team for 5 years and in this time our business has grown considerably. With telephone support available for all our Managers as they need it plus Sarah and her team proactively keeping us updated on changes in legislation we are reassured that we are in safe hands.

The HR software that Quest implemented also helps us keep on top of the routine aspects of HR such as holiday bookings, recording absence, holding personnel records which then allows Sarah and her team easy access to give us relevant advice.

Our Managers have also benefited from workshops run by Sarah to help develop their skills on handling issues such as disciplinary, appraisals, recruitment etc….

The support of Quest is invaluable and provides a much more cost effective solution than employing a HR Manager in house.
