In the 25 years since TPS was established, we’ve worked with clients across 21 different countries, all with different needs to address and we’re proud to have been able to help find solutions to what in some instances appeared to be insurmountable issues:
Costly Recruitment & Training
Our client spent a fortune on recruiting and training over 4,000 factory operators per year due to a high turnover in a skill-critical job. We designed reliable, valid and cost-effective selection tests – reducing recruitment costs by 90%, staff turnover by 50% and required training time by 25%. Big savings for our client.
Board on different pages
Our client was a public facing organisation who was facing both financial and political pressure to reorganise. However, the Board members fundamentally disagreed on the direction of any changes. Working with this group, we helped to identify a common core of values from which an agreed strategy was able to emerge.
We’ve designed it…now we have to make it
Our client was a well-known aviation manufacturer who had spent years designing a leading aircraft. Once significant orders had been secured, a quick change from a design organisation to a manufacturing organisation had to be realised. TPS helped this company to identify essential future-success behaviours, assess current skills and build development plans for all key staff.
“All hell breaks loose!”
Our client was responsible for hosting a major public event in a safe and secure manner. However, history provided plenty of examples of where things had gone wrong. In an effort to build a coherent strategy of planning and operations we facilitated a workshop with our client, the police, local councils, landowners and security experts. The next event was deemed “the best ever”.
“Shall we just sack the whole Department?”
When performance issues look hopeless, it is not unusual for senior managers to look for drastic solutions. However, we recognised that there was significant skills and hidden motivation in this department. What was missing was a vision for success and the skills to help lead this team in a positive and constructive way. In the end, nobody was sacked.
