In this article we examine case studies of reviews we conducted for Human Resources Planning.

Reliable Human Resources Planning

Children’s Aid Society

The Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa wished to improve efficiencies in the HR function. Staff time was consumed with duplicate data entry and many paper based manual transactions – limiting the department’s ability to serve its clients.

We conducted a review of the HR organization, HR programs and procedures, and HR service delivery. Recommendations were made in the areas of Human Resources Planning, organization, strategy and operations. This included increasing transparency and communications, identifying opportunities for greater efficiencies, realigning HR business processes and determining the best mix of Human Resources Planning for roles and skills.


Human Resources Planning for CCCCanadian Commercial Corporation

At the Canadian Commercial Corporation we worked with the Aerospace, Defense and Security Branch through the implementation of a major reorganization. This restructuring created a need for the redeployment of resources and the staffing of over thirty positions.

We provided guidance, direction and services in the areas of Human Resources Planning, job profiling, recruitment, interviewing and selection for both internal and external candidates – resulting in the successful implementation of the new organization.


Health Canada

Human Resources Planning for Health CanadaThe effective use of Informatics is critical to the success of the Health Protection and Food Branch at Health Canada.

OIMT was facing the need to better address client service and business requirements. There was a need to consolidate current Organization and Staffing plans; to effectively track, process and manage all Classification and Staffing actions; and to address skill set deficiencies for effective Human Resources Planning.

We developed Human Resources Planning that provided a strategic vision of HR management and outlined the right set of activities and programs to put Human Resources Planning into action. This defined how they could best align the skills and competencies of limited Informatics resources with the needs of clients to ensure effective Human Resources Planning
