The Challenges Businesses Face During Expansion & How to Tackle Them
At this Engagement Excellence Live event in November, we're going to be focussing on business growth and the challenges associated with it. We'll be hearing from a number of companies of different sizes who have experienced exponential growth in recent years. They'll be revealing the HR challenges that have arisen as a result of business growth and sharing the strategies they've used to overcome those challenges.
Our first speaker is Joanne Barton, Group HR & Training Manager at Coleman & Company, the market leaders in complex demolition and specialised associated services who were heavily involved in the recent redevelopment of Birmingham New Street and Grand Central. Coleman & Company have been through significant growth over the past 7 years, both organic and through multiple acquisitions, and Jo will be sharing their story with us - focussing on the actions they've taken to alleviate any potential negative effects that growth could have on their people and what they have yet to do.
Kieran Grundy, Interim HR Director at SNC-Lavalin, will also be speaking at the event. Kieran worked as a Business Partner to implement HR strategy following the acquisition of Interfleet Technology by SNC-Lavalin in 2012, working to understand HR challenges and drive growth of both companies. As the UK is currently undergoing investment of £37.5bn into the rail sector, Kieran will be focussing his talk on Interfleet UK and the growth of the rail sector, the competition for talent in the market and the struggle of attracting and retaining technically skilled employees.
To wrap up the day, Founder & CEO of Reward Gateway, Glenn Elliott, will be sharing the engagement strategy that powered Reward Gateway's growth. As a private equity owned business, Reward Gateway recently changed ownership and received a £140m investment from US-based Great Hill Partners. Glenn will be giving us a peek behind the curtain at Reward Gateway and will reveal the tools they use internally to engage staff.
