When his business experienced a period of unprecedented international growth, the MD of a global engineering firm knew he needed help.

He needed to take on a number of new employees and wanted to make sure he had the right foundations in place to grow his business effectively. He contacted Lynn at Pennine HR to carry out a comprehensive review of his workforce, and his people management processes.

Lynn helped identify the additional skills that would be needed as the business grew and recommended appropriate training and development.

A new performance management programme ensured that staff received regular feedback on their performance and that development plans continued to reflect the business needs.

We highlighted the need to put in place a leadership team to manage the growth and were able to access funding for a leadership development programme through Growth Accelerator.

At the same time, the firm knew that they needed to make sure they kept the highest standards of health and safety, and so appointed Pennine HR to develop a thorough but practical health and safety management system.

Several years on, the business continues to grow in international markets and Pennine HR is an integral part of the management team.
