Disadvantages in the assignment of an interim manager?

Experience has shown that existing employees outside the department assigned to the interim manager are always skeptical of external resources. Why do they not trust us as an existing team to solve the problem? The focus is on strong track record in combination of extra resource even to protect the current workload! Because the company usually does not have resources for projects outside the operational business.

Typical tasks / Which specific problems can be solved by us?

  • Transformation is the change of traditional people management to a modern and service-oriented work culture in the HR department, adapting it to the requirements of the ever-changing work environment and world of work. Flexibility, innovation and high adaptability should replace the traditional human resources administration. Nowadays, it is about motivating the organization as well as the employees to change consistently, acquiring new employees and retaining them in the long term with excellent service by developing

    employees according to their skills, interests and needs. However, this includes, first of all, a greater use of technology

  • The origin of interim management is the use of an experienced executive on a temporary basis. As an operational human resources manager, director of human resources or member of the executive board, we take responsibility for an important leadership position in your company to cover a vacancy and ensure that the company continues to function smoothly until a permanent solution is found. Interim managers often bring a very diverse set of skills and experience, based on previous leadership positions, to quickly and effectively address an urgent business crisis or day-to-day business challenges.

  • This relates to a wide range of activities within your HR organization. For example, the implementation of a new human capital management (HCM) system, the transition to a new compensation model, the execution of various recruiting campaigns, or the launch of an executive development program. In such projects, people in charge of personnel have to perform a variety of tasks at a high level in direct cooperation with the HR department,
    rather than simply "administering" a project. Professional, controlled project management involves experienced service provider management, monitoring of deadlines, monitoring of budgets, coordination of internal and external resources, and communication. We do not position ourselves as an external Project Management Office (PMO), but rather empower your own human resources organization to be progressively responsible for projects in addition to the operational " craziness".
