Projects – inhouse HR support

An organisation in the agribusiness wanted to have the job descriptions for all ‘above labour agreement’ level positions drawn up and graded after a merger. As their HR business partner lacked time, Hamstra & Partners took on project management and made sure that within two months approx. sixty positions were accurately described, graded and approved.

Other inhouse HR projects:

  • set up an HR analytics department on an interim basis and advise and support the CFO on workforce management issues
  • Fill in for the HR manager during absence
  • Projectmanagement for harmonising the variable reward schemes

Client: Kawasaki Motors Europe

Question: develop and facilitate a performance management workshop

We divided the workshop into sessions for the Japanese senior management and sessions for middle management. The main focus of the first session was providing insights into the theory of performance management. In the middle management session we dealt with theory, but also focussed on day-to-day practice. The participants had the possibility to share knowledge and practice with each other. As a result, the performance management goals for the coming years were accepted and clear to all and understanding between the different disciplines improved.
