A story of best practices in people management strategies for business transformation in an African context. 

Repeated Wednesday at 11:30 a.m.

The integration journey is the story of how the umanesource management function led a business transformation when the shareholding structure of the company changed. It describes the evolution of a state-owned company into a commercially viable, performance-oriented, culturally agile and customer-centric organization. The transformation, which occurred in a unionized environment in an African setting, made impacts on organizational structures, rebranding, reorganization, retrenchments and other people-related initiatives. The end results were phenomenal and the lessons learned worth sharing.

Learning Objectives:

  • Knowing what people strategies are needed in business transformation.
  • Helping employees handle the psychological impact of retrenchment.
  • Applying multiple communication channels for business transformation.
  • Understanding effective stakeholder management.
