Our Work | Case Studies

Case Study #1

Systems + People

Concern / Struggle

With previous experience of Kevin’s management style, this client knew that some of the “basics” were not in place, and needed a snapshot of the gaps / concerns.

What we did

With the basic people systems not in place – it resulted in unnecessary use of time, resources + lost money (fun fact: manual and poor attendance capturing is known to cost organisations up to 3% of their payroll).

the solution

More accuracy in recording of time (with staff being paid correctly + unnecessary overtime being addressed). Future system upgrades also exposed a longer-term need for the development of staff – in order to keep up with the business changes.

Our company hired Kevin to carry out a group HR assessment and we were very satisfied with the results.

Kevin has given us valuable advice on all matters pertaining to the HR function, including documentation, contracts, statutory needs, skills assessment to name a few.

We valued his input and will continue to take his advice in the future.”

Case Study #2

Absenteeism

Concern / Struggle

This company approached us to assist with an absenteeism problem they were having. Too many staff were abusing the system + it was impacting the ability for the business to run properly.

What we did

Working with the company, an analysis of the concern areas were undertaken. Remedies were put in place to address the relevant issues.

the solution

Absenteeism was reduced by 10%.

fun fact: if your entire workforce absenteeism is 10% – over a 10 year period you will have paid for your entire workforce to be home for 1 year.

“We engaged Kevin for an assessment and review of the HR aspects of our QMS in the cleaning and security divisions.

We benefitted by having the HR Risks highlighted + addressed.

The updating and standardising of job descriptions has enabled us to identify development and training gaps which is assisting in career + succession planning.”
