Case Study: Steadying A Spinoff And Enabling Profitability
A sudden spin-off of a high-profile media company from its parent threatened the performance of the media company. Tasked with helping lead through the transition as well as upgrading talent throughout the spun off organization, the EVP of HR reached out to Denise Cooper for her help through the contentious transition.
By helping the team connect 'talent and fit', better understand the expectations of high performance organizations, developing specific desktop tools to help company managers implement those high-performance behaviors across the organization, and individually coaching struggling HR team members, Denise was able to help the organization elevate their employee engagement scores from a low of 68% to a high of 86% 18 months later.
The HR department was also recognized by the CEO and Board of Directors as a key reason for the media company's continued growth.
