Change project

When there is a need to downsize headcount, a company typically also looks into other ways of optimising its business’ efficiency. As a result, our client launched a project to focus on specific anomalous costly HR practices and PWS Consult was selected to run this project.

The role of the Consultant started with capturing the business challenge and translating it into solutions fitting the client’s needs. More specifically, the client’s business is bound to seasons and their construction sites are very remote, spread over three countries. Thus the Consultant scoped the project around re-defining the work time policy, harmonising the travel policy, as well as developing related HR policies on topics such as remuneration and performance.

PWS Consult was also in charge of the implementation of the Change project.

Restructuring program

Our client is an established international company in the infrastructure industry, whose part of its activities was going through an important business transformation within a critical economic environment. The company had unfortunately to review its cost structure, also downsizing substantially its headcount.

PWS Consult has taken on responsibility of leading and delivering the Restructuring Program. Its Transition Manager handled the project from the analysis phase, proposal of solution, through to leading negotiations with unions into the implementation of the Collective Dismissal Plan. The Restructuring program was covering two jurisdictions, Luxembourg and France, and PWS Consult dealt with both.
