Looking for your expert advice on the same:-
HR Business Partners have a critical role to play, whether it is for integrating a new acquisition or deal with some major changes in the internal structure because of the knowledge and reach they have in all the areas and functions of the business.
Your organization is amidst one such change and the senior leadership looks up to your expertise to shape a change management plan.
A big restructure is on the cards- the marketing team would be shrinking in size because of the renewed marketing strategy and outsourcing of some of the specialized marketing activities to our external partners. This would mean that some of the roles will shrink in size, some roles will become more strategic and there will be some role redundancies as a result. The marketing team which is currently of a team size of 30 will be reduced to 17.
The team currently consists of:
24 Marketing Executives
4 Online Marketing Team Leaders
2 Senior Managers
The plan is to get the executive count to 14, the TL count to 2 and the SM count to 1. This necessarily means making 10 executives, 2 TLs and 1 SM role redundant. One Senior Manager who will be retained will move to a more strategic role. The marketing team is anticipating a change due to sudden frenzied activity over the last few weeks and a few hearsay moments due to which the mood in the team is quite somber.
As a HRBP you are expected to be actively involved in the planning and execution of this major change and extend a complete support to the business. Give a presentation on your approach on your involvement and execution to initiate this activity and bring it to closure.
