Middle Management Development Case Study

GKI Resourcing’s strategic HR Consultancy was approached by a large corporate that had grown significantly through acquisition and was in the process of consolidating its different operating companies into a single brand. This included making a number of site closures and the integration of people and product into a single RDC.

In addition, the new five-year plan demanded significant UK growth through further acquisition but, importantly, also expressed a need for organic growth to play a significant role in this expansion. However, two years into the plan it became clear that the senior and middle management teams did not possess the requisite skills and knowledge to drive the business forward.

Rather than putting in place a wholesale change, the client has worked with GKI Resourcing to complete a full review of the entire leadership team and the layer below in order to identify areas of existing strength and development needs and to obtain key data to support future decision making. Each individual now has in place a tailored development plan, with identified development needs, that is fully aligned with the objectives of the business.

GKI Resourcing has also been able to support the business by providing talent to fulfil additional identified skills gaps at the right time for the business through our Search & Selection and Interim Management practices and we are expecting a six month return on investment.
