Karistem helps a global player in the manufacturing industry
harmonise and optimise its HR function



The adverse economic climate prompted the company to launch a global transformation programme to improve business performance.

Both Business Unit and Support Function heads were requested to implement the programme within their scope of responsibility.


Four drivers of change were identified for the HR function:

  • One common HR team in all countries (shared by the Business Units)
  • One common framework for HR processes and tools worldwide
  • Streamlined decision making process for key HR decisions
  • Empowered local management

Sponsored by the Chief HR Officer, the programme involved the whole company-wide HR community including:

  • Business HR Vice-Presidents to ensure consistency with business needs
  • Country HR Directors (HRD) to ensure local implementation
  • Process Owners to coordinate and monitor the activities carried out in each HR domain

Four key factors explaining why Karistem was chosen:

  • Understanding of Client’s context
  • Expertise in international HR projects
  • Expertise in change management
  • Expertise in project monitoring
