HR is promoted to the position of strategic partner

A hospitality business transformed its HR function to make it more efficient and get it in tune with the company’s most important goals.

When a multi-billion-dollar international hospitality organization embarked on its own large-scale profit growth initiative, it was aiming for substantial efficiency gains across the entire organization, and getting HR in shape to help fulfil that mandate was a key goal. Executives hoped to redesign HR to make the company’s people and culture an impactful differentiator in its crowded market. Getting that done while simultaneously aiming for a $10 million cost reduction and a $200 million growth target would be a challenge, one they knew they couldn’t attempt on their own.
