12 CASE STUDY Background Following the Governments comprehensive spending review, the London Borough of Camden had the challenge of significantly reducing their workforce whilst maintaining exceptional standards of front line services. With 970 'post deletions' expected during its three-year change programme, Camden Council's HR service is in the second year of supporting the organisation through a large-scale transformation programme to make £83 million of savings. As an ‘investor in people’ Camden selected Hays Career Transition to provide expert employee support to those individuals affected by this restructure. We were tasked with ensuring employees remained motivated, were supported and obtained the requisite skills to secure their future employment either elsewhere in the Council or externally.
13 FEEDBACK Solution "Through offering a range of tools, from redeployment & skills workshops to online learning modules such as negotiating job offers, writing a good cover letter and networking, we have had a positive response to support available," says Vanessa Lincoln, change manager at the council. This is represented by a strong take-up of 85% for workshops, 51% for e-learning usage and 14% for 1:1 career coaching. "In everything we do, we need to be cost-effective and with the support of Hays, we have constantly challenged ourselves to do things differently. For example, we hold bite-size face-to-face sessions, deliver a number of sessions in the same day and increase the ratio of trainer-to-employee to meet high demand," says Lincoln.
14 POSITIVE RESULTS & PUBLICITY "Through this partnership, we have managed to redeploy 25% of staff facing compulsory redundancy, and have saved the Council approximately £310,000 in severance and recruitment costs."
