With some 77 per cent of Human Resource leaders globally saying their organisation is in a “constant state of change”, Grant Thornton Ireland recently confirmed that it had experienced over a 30% increase in enquiries from clients around people issues and challenges over the last two years.
Research published last month by the International Coach Federation and Human Capital Institute also found that 85% of organisations have experienced an unsuccessful change management initiative in the last two years.
The Grant Thornton People and Change Consulting practice which was launched recently headed by partner Patrick Gallen, focuses on seven discrete but interlinking services for Human Resource Directors and senior management ranging from Leadership Development and Performance Management to Strategic Workforce Planning and Change Management. It also embraces Board Effectiveness, Organisational Culture, Stakeholder Engagement and Learning & Development. Grant Thornton has also established an “HRD Room” for thought leadership amongst Human Resource Directors to complement its existing services for Chief Executives and Chief Financial Officers.
“This is an exciting step for Grant Thornton as it addresses an important need across the Irish business and public-sector landscape. Patrick and his team are recognised international experts and will add even more breadth to our service offering for clients right across Ireland”, said Grant Thornton Managing Partner, Mick McAteer.
