Copiae was approached by a fast food processing company to provide HR support during a major change programme to introduce quality management and reduce costs.
What we did:
We worked closely with the Managing Director reviewing their current organisational structure and contracts of employment. This resulted in a recommendation of some redundancies. We advised on the change process to ensure it was carried out fairly and legally. We concluded by drawing up new employment contracts and addressed one particular problem which was the amount of time lost due to sickness absence. We developed policies and procedures for better attendance management and provided training to managers on how to implement these.
The company now has a new structure enabling it to continue the change process towards its quality goals.
The Client has reduced their cost based by reducing the size of the workforce without any problems arising.
The company now has employment contracts which comply with current legislation and yet have the flexibility to meet dynamic business demands.
Line managers are using the tools provided to help them reduce short-term sickness absence.
