Many forward thinking companies recognise that to survive in today's business world the same strategies and skills deployed previously will not take their business to the next level. Change programmes are frequently used to manage mergers and acquisitions, diversifying into new sectors and, above all, expanding into emerging world markets. While this may sound simple, it actually means major challenges for businesses that need to manage change while engaging their most valuable asset, their people.
Not only are clients having to find talented people to lead them into new markets, but they are also competing for skilled teams to ensure they deliver complex projects. Emerging markets have become the place to focus upon when looking to attract elusive talent, cost-effective labour and technical experience.
In any successful company or change programme, excellent communication is essential. Effective communication inspires trust in leadership. Once a retention approach has been determined, a strategic communications plan must be deployed to publicise key initiatives.
GPP Ltd helps our partners assess the impact of change programmes not only on the business, but also for the career paths of c-level executives, middle managers and technical specialists. We examine this holistically, including partnering with specialist international wealth management companies who offer services for globally mobile workforces, such as visas, taxation and compensation, schooling and housing.
Over the past four years, we have proactively and strategically expanded our networks and intelligence in emerging markets such as India, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. We partner with organisations to help them understand this is a means of developing global strategic innovation that can redefine the identity and scalability of a company. In order to achieve this, global human capital strategies need to be aligned and deployed.
