Challenge: This company had been through several mergers and name changes in the past few years. As the organization changed, the Human Resource (HR) team’s focus had blurred. The Vice President of HR was looking for a way to align the global team around a common vision for the function. She wanted to transform the team’s skill set, allowing them to transition out of their traditional, transactionally-focused roles, and become true strategic business partners with their line clients.
Challenge: Achieving a key initiative in this pharmaceutical company’s vision: the design of a seamless operating model (from molecule to market). To provide a powerful base of sustainability, the initiative was led internally by HR executives, with Peak Development providing additional expertise in organization design and executive coaching to sharpen their consulting skills as they cascaded the effort throughout the company.
