Helping a tech-based financial services business build a Global HR team and develop their talent strategy 

Organisation: A technology based financial services business, balancing the demand from market stakeholders to expand the business model into new currencies with the expectation of the regulator, to continually mitigate risk.  The CEO, executive and operational teams were based across London and New York and a significant element of technology expertise was outsourced to a third-party in India.  The HR team in London provided global operational support, without strategic leadership.

Solution: Working closely with the executive team, discussions took place to understand the unique business model, culture and need for a global HR team.   The combination of innovation and risk management required strong commercial business skills and collaboration.  The Global People Strategy focussed on building a clear proposition for attracting, developing and retaining both operational and technology based employees.  The HR Operating Model provided support across both time zones, balanced UK and US employment legislation and leveraged consistent HR policies and practices.
