HR STRATEGY, PROCESSES & PROGRAMS
P360 served as interim on-site HR Leader for nine months to quickly prepare a small consumer products company to accomplish its growth plan including international expansion. The company recognized it needed expertise beyond its newly promoted HR Generalist to facilitate dramatic change, but it wasn’t sure how to build out an HR function, so it hired P360 to lay out a roadmap and execute year one initiatives.
During the engagement, the company grew from 70 to 140 employees, and hired the first employees in Canada, Ireland and China. We concluded the engagement by onboarding a VP of HR for the next growth phase. The energy and creative spirit of this client environment was addictive and the collection of cute pets in the workplace made it an extra warm and fuzzy experience! The role included:

I t is a privilege to be a consultant. We support success in others, and we get to work with super cool clients; plus we deliver through a mixture of both creative and structured processes, and that is a great fit for P360! Here’s a brief sampling of Pathway360 projects that have made it fun and engaging to be a consultant:
ORGANIZATION DESIGN & TRANSFORMATION
A corporate facilities management function faced multiple and conflicting processes, procedures, and practices as a result of two recent company acquisitions which also created a new team structure.
P360 conducted team sessions focused on process mapping and determining preferred practices, identifying skills for new jobs, assessing current skill gaps, action planning to develop team members to fulfill a broad scope of responsibilities, and developing ways to synergize across the group to accomplish team goals.
The team’s success was possible because the new leader was committed to demonstrating trust and engaging everyone in process of creating a highly effective team. This team became a role model, and other departments engaged P360 in teaming sessions to build relationships, improve teamwork, and increase productivity.
