So how did Simple HR fair when they were contracted by ClickNetherfield – a manufacturer of high quality glass showcases for use in museums and galleries – to provide talent management to the company?
The company: http://www.clicknetherfield.com/
The challenge: Help establish a global presence for the company, especially a Chinese division.
The solution: Simple HR began by facilitating a management retreat for thirteen members of ClickNetherfields’s senior management team. Amongst a number of outcomes that were achieved during the retreat, it was decided that a mentoring program should be initiated.
During this time, the board of directors identified the Far East as a significant market and started to plan a Chinese division of the business. One of Simple HR’s mentees, David Wallace, showed significant talent on the retreat and during the mentoring sessions it became apparent that he was ambitious and entrepreneurial. Following a discussion with the directors of ClickNetherfield it was suggested that David become a key player in facilitating the Chinese start-up as he was keen and entrepreneurial. ClickNetherfield agreed this was a good solution and followed Simple HR’s advice by making David a lynch pin within the new Chinese team.
The result: David is still in China today and the company is seeing great interest and opportunity in this emerging marketplace.
