Transformation & Integration Programmes
Processes and systems are integral elements of any transformation project. But is there a company that exists
which has gone through major change without impacting it’s people?
Over 30 years experience
Arriving to a sustained competitive advantage
In today’s environment managing people related change has become a greater part of the business transformation journey, and many companies’ HR function is driven by the recognition of its significant impact on sustained competitive advantage. Therefore, the function is now less about traditional HR expertise and more about communicating and supporting people in an organisation that is going through change.
The role of a modern HR function is to partner with their organisation, making sure it is fit for purpose, ensuring their people strategy totally aligns to their business strategy.
People are still at the heart of every organisation and everything from the creation to the delivery of the company strategy relies on those people. It remains very important to make sure your people are developed, incentivised, motivated, and ultimately engaged.

What type of HR talent do you need to support Transformation & Integration programmes?
Individuals need to be experienced at managing change and have the ability to partner with the business to drive the culture that is set by the leadership team.
They need to be strategic and know how to translate a business strategy into a people plan that is commercially aligned, pushing the business in the right direction.
Quite often its short term support you initially need followed by a different person that you need to sustain and grow from the foundations you’ve built. We have a team of experts you can utilise whenever you need in the short to medium term and our HR Recruitment Consultants can work with you to find your post integration hire.

What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.
Brilliant service, friendly staff, lovely team
Amazing service and support from extremely knowledgeable people, who also take great care in the standard of their work. Can't fault them, thank you so much!
5* all round, Mel was extremely helpful and answered all my questions, very friendly and professional. Recommended to others and would definitely use again. Thank you again Mel and Helen.
Mel and her team are fantastic, help me all along the way with some complex issues. Couldn't recommend more.
I've used Optimal PBS on a couple of occasions now to assist with due diligence on an acquisition i've been working on and also to provide contract and handbook production. Cannot fault the support or advice provided.
We love this company and Mel is a god send to our business, she sorted everything for us from employee contracts to helping us source the right accountant, she is at the end of the phone whenever I have any HR questions (even when on holiday) can not fault her commitment. Keep up the good work!
