A highly successful financial services company was experiencing delays in filling a critical role within its human resources function. The role required an experienced talent and organization development manager to provide leadership and continuity to a team that was responsible for providing significant services to the company. This team had also recently seen several staff changes, with people moving to new roles within the organization or leaving it altogether. The team needed continuity, guidance and support to help it continue to fulfill its role in the organization.
Globalise provided a director-level organizational development manager with broad experience in several sectors, including financial services, to perform the duties and responsibilities of the Director of Talent and Organization Development on an interim basis. In addition, the Globalise manager was charged with drafting the 2013 operating plan and budget for the talent and organization function.
Our manager performed the day-to-day duties of the director while also providing the specific guidance and expertise needed to support a range of key initiatives. These included the annual employee engagement survey, the first annual talent review process and toolkit, the system requirements for the proposed talent management system business case project and a two- to three-year roadmap for leadership development.
The manager also completed a first draft of the function’s 2013 operating plan, project charters and operating budget, which were presented to the human resources leadership team to initiate the prioritization and funding processes. Our manager then facilitated the induction of a permanent director to ensure continuity and an accelerated assimilation.
