HR Department Structure and Capability Review
THRL undertook a comprehensive HR department structure and capability review to improve performance and align with the strategic directions of a large government agency. The process involved assessment of strengths, weaknesses and the introduction of improvements, in the context of broader business directions and best practice.
A series of recommendations on how the HR department at the corporate and regional level could be redesigned was provided. Recommendations would lead to improved delivery of the full suite of HR functions, improvement of operational programs and the delivery of quality operational HR services at a local and regional level. The new structure introduces a HR business partner model necessary to supporting an incredibly large, regionally dispersed workforce. This work also included the redesign of existing positions and the introduction of new positions. The capability review process informed the design of positions descriptions. Leading on for this work, the organisation’s first HR Strategy and Capability Framework was developed.
