Why HRCubed is the perfect partner to transform your HR processes

By Mandy Chapman

At HRCubed, we are focused on helping enterprise organisations strengthen their HR function, whether they need to transform their whole approach, or simply improve elements of their HR operating model.

We are your guides on this journey to positive HR and business success. We understand the transformational power that trusting and empowering employees brings to an organisation and we recognise that ensuring all employees feel truly engaged, trusted and empowered has to be a key HR objective.  We concentrate on partnering with you and delivering the expertise in HR best practice; business processes; and technology to drive efficiencies for your HR function.

Our clients often tell us that we open their ‘eyes’ to the level of administration and low value tasks their HR teams engage in, leading them to reconsider their HR approach. But don’t just take our word for it. Our roster of clients is ramping up and they all have a story to tell.

Events company, The NEC Group, for example, has an array of employment and workforce management issues to manage, so it turned to HRCubed to deliver a review of processes. Workshops were undertaken to understand the key challenges and opportunities for process and business improvement in the short- and long-term.

Martina Zdrahalova, HR Shared Services Manager, said: “the workshops were engaging, fun and our team’s feedback was fantastic as they didn’t fully realise the end-to-end processes and the complexities they deal with during their day-to-day delivery, until we were all in the room together. The outputs are robust and clear and will help us to move forward to the next phase of our project.”

We also focus on being a trusted, long-term advisor for our clients, adding value and driving efficiencies in their HR functions and providing them with practical, actionable feedback that delivers quick value.

Stephen Dixon-Mould, Group HR Operational Improvements Director at Wincanton, said: “We’ve worked with Mandy and the team on a number of occasions. We’ve had a number of breakthroughs on the traditional “we’re special, we need to be different” through a number of simple facilitated workshops with stakeholders. The light-bulb moment of a team coming together and seeing how they can simplify is priceless, especially when it puts the end user at the heart of the process.

“We were fortunate enough to work directly with Mandy and Lindsey on some very complex and highly challenging areas within the employment and pay lifecycle. As a result, we had a highly engaged team, who simplified 20+ operational processes into seven meaningful tasks, that are a lot easier to follow and explain to our managers.”

Another customer, Chris Oglethorpe, HR Director at legal firm, Gowling WLG, also highlighted the strength of HRCubed’s process review, when he commented, “We really enjoyed working with the HRCubed team, feedback from the delegates was great. Their leadership of the process was invaluable and we were impressed that they never over-engineered what they delivered – they made the process simple and taught us to do the same. They really understand how world-class HR processes should operate.”

Following a process review activity with HRCubed and further highlighting our process and HR expertise, Jon Everard, Director HR Systems Transformation Project, University College London highlighted: “how brilliantly HRCubed facilitated, controlled, and extracted the information needed from the attendees. Many thanks for your help in achieving our aims and bringing this work-stream to such an important point in its timeline.”

These are just a few of the endorsements we have had from clients about how we work in partnership with them, challenging them to change HR for the better and focus more on high value activities that enables them to drive operational efficiencies and achieve a fast RoI. HR matters and by simplifying and strengthening your HR function, you can really transform your business outcomes.
