    Example Case

    THE PROBLEM

    The Client, a major big IT firm, requires a professional People & Organizational Advisory, and EpoCh has been their `Executive Advisor’ since June 2023. Main tasks are:

    • To identify the root causes of engagement issues across the organization and to provide professional advice to plan and create concrete action plans to improve their employees’ engagement
    • To support and implement `Succession Planning’ exercise to identify and develop internal future potential talents to the leadership role
    • To accompany to an HR senior leader who aims to be a future CHRO as a practical mentor.

    These three tasks can be delivered in parallel on a bi-weekly basis.

    THE SOLUTION
    • EpoCh assists The Client to facilitate their Organizational Culture transformation process with both of top-down and bottom-up approach and collaboration based on several successful case studies from much experience of MNC.
    • EpoCh advises to implement internal Talent Review process together with Succession Planning flow from scratch based on much knowledge and practical exercises as ex-CHRO and ex-HR Director in the global companies.
    • EpoCh accompanies a future HR leader as a `personal partner’ that matches his/her condition and goals so that he/she can get the ideal state of mind/motivation to move forward and maximize his/her potentials with uniqueness based on our own experience of both HR leader of MNC and CHRO of Japanese listed company.

    For all solutions above, one of the EpoCh’s key strengths is not a single consultation but a practical accompaniment to people and organization as a change agent based on both of theory and experience.

    CHALLENGES

    One of the challenges is that most senior leaders and managers in the organization has less experience and knowledge on People & Organization strategy and tactics, however, that makes EpoCh special and valuable to The Client to be accompanied through healthy dialogue and discussion.

    THE RESULT

    Some concreate action plans with both of ‘quick-wins’ and `mid to long-term solutions’ on improving engagement has been created and implemented to the wider organization to drive The Client to be a Talent Attraction company which eventually helps to improve engagement score significantly.

    Also one of the future HR future leaders has been just promoted to Vice HR Director with much confident based on a few month’s continuous mentor exercise. He would like to this relationship even after he becomes to CHRO in the future.
