A HRD to support a drop in activity after COVID
The situation for businesses has changed dramatically with the pandemic. Whether they have suffered from a decline in activity, transient or long-term growth in activity or even a profound change in business model, our experienced, competent and operational managers have successfully supported them.
Our client is an international group carrying out a retail activity related to its main activity. It had 9 licensed children’s toy stores in France (2 owned and 7 under concession) since 1987, comprising 100 employees at the start of 2020. With the confinement, the activity of its stores fell and the group decided to close a part of its establishments, the least profitable and located in the worst locations, all of France.
The inventory at the time of the arrival of the Interim Manager
Christian, our HRD Interim Manager who has already faced this type of situation in close areas, ensured the conduct of the mission after the departure of the HRD in post.
The solutions proposed to remedy the situation
He took charge of social relations and finalized the PSE with the social partners, without impact on the business while ensuring regular reporting to the European HRD. Subsequently, as the economic situation did not recover, he generalized the PSE to all French establishments, in a peaceful social climate.
Precise skills guarantee the success of the mission
