The restructuring and reorganisation of a company often entails the reduction of the work force. In these cases there is usually very little room for manoeuvre.
Therefore, responsible employers support their often long-time employees by trying to find solutions for them during this phase of transfer from one company to another. iowell supports its clients during this difficult time.
By advising the best possible process of separation for all concerned, our professional outplacement services will benefit all involved parties: the employer, the redundant employee and of course the remaining employees within the company by offering new perspectives for the future.
„The success of a company is the sum of the successes of its employees.“
To ensure the continued success of a company, there are two vital issues: On the one hand the constant education and development of the individual employees´ skills and knowledge is of fundamental importance. Of course on the other hand this constant learning process must be integrated into the company’s strategy and philosophy and encouraged within the company.
Together with our clients we:
- define the demands the employees need to meet in the future.
- analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the employees.
- utilize the existing potential to its maximum.
- we develop individual training measures
- support the targeted training and development of individual employees.
- offer individual and/or group training.
„Hire the right people is the best thing a manager can do.“
It is not always necessary to fill a position permanently. A temporary placement is sometimes required when it concerns a project limited in time or for the temporary management during a transition phase e.g. to initiate and implement a restructuring process within a company. Sometimes temporary management is simply required to keep the daily business going while a permanent solution is found.
As these phases can be of vital importance to the company´s existence, it is necessary to be able to provide highly qualified and experienced executives as quickly as possible who are willing to lead and take responsibility during this time at short notice.
Therefore iowell offers management solutions and supports its clients in search, evaluation, assessment, and selection of possible interim managers with the emphasis on their qualifications, leadership qualities, and management abilities, as well as their personality and values.
In situations of competitive markets, with increasing demands for the ideal candidate or due to the increased necessity for confidentiality, the most effective method of finding the appropriate employee for a company is the direct search contact. Instead of publishing a vacant position to the general public, this valuable information is targeted at the small group of executives and specialists most likely to be of interest to the company.
In other cases, e.g. if time is a vital factor, the search via advertisements (in the print media or via internet) could be the most suitable and effective method. Within a short period of time, this method leads to direct contact of interested candidates who are already open to new offers of employment and willing to change their current position. Web-recruiting and internet search are becoming increasingly important.
Combining the different search methods has also proved to be very successful as the various advantages are combined and benefit the search process.
The selection of the appropriate method is determined in accordance to the individual circumstances and the requests of our client and therefore results in highly qualified consulting which consists of the following elements:
- analysis and concept
- research and evaluation
- selection and presentation
- integration and coaching
If our client wishes to advertise for new executives in the company´s name our iowell media service offers support regarding the concept, layout, wording, and placement of the job offers.
The coincidence of the continuing recession with globalization of the business environment has led to a serious increase in the number of bankruptcies in Germany. This development has increased the need for effective reorganisation consulting services. As long as an endangered corporation has not reached the stage of having to go into liquidation, a targeted reorganisation program can still bring it back to profitability.
iowell offers, particularly to mid-size corporations, the road to greater profitability from its specifically developed toolbox. This toolbox contains our internationally gathered experience with the intention of keeping and improving our clients competitive advantage. Emphasis is in applying a cleary structured plan of action, so that we can realize a maximum of „cost versus profits“ result.
Building blocks for a successful reorganisation:
- Crisis and cause analysis
- Basis for the restructuring
- Innovation – investment and divestment
- Development of the business strategy
- Formation of a task team
- Definition of the reorganisation goals and their implementation
- Definition of the reorganisation projects
- Information policies and reporting
Business processes are the central nervous system of every corporation. They interlink the efforts of the workers, the clients, and of the suppliers. The better these business processes are organized the greater the profitability.
After a vision has been formulated and with the appropriate strategy in mind, we help you to adapt the processes to the organization. We emphasize in our consulting services to provide you with active support and monitoring of the implementation of optimised processes and with this the improvement of your organisation (the organization follows the process). Our methods adhere to the most up-to-date and modern concepts available.
The constant changes in the market must be followed by changes in the organization. Ideally, they should go hand in hand. For the dynamic entrepreneur there are an unlimited amount of solutions available.
