  17. 17. Case Study 1: A Fast growingorganization in the QSR sectorProblem Statement:• This organization was facing an attrition challenge and also needed to plan its HR strategy to look at trebling its growth in the next 3 years. A large proportion of the employees in this organization were in the age group of 18 to 22 years . Attracting people in this age group was not a challenge, however, retaining and engaging them was very difficult with stiff challenge from the BPO and Retail sector for hiring this target group of employees.A Snapshot of Our Approach• Identified the aspirations of the young workforce taking into account their socio- economic backgrounds.• Aligned these aspirations with what the company was doing well, and with the vision of the company to arrive at the EVP• Identified the Brand Busters to ensure that all causes of attrition are mitigated or nullified• Used the Brand Signature to create a pull for the right profile 2011 @ People in Business India Private Limited 17
  18. 18. Case Study 2: Leading GlobalFinancial Services PlayerProblem Statement:• One of the world’s largest bank began its operations in India some years back. This company is one of the best paymasters in the industry and also offers challenging opportunities to employees. However, every year a sizeable chunk of the employees left the organization (voluntary/involuntary). This has caused a sense of insecurity within the current employees. Also, in the job market, this has led to a lack of a pull factor and fewer people are expressing interest in joining.A Snapshot of Our Approach• Collaborating with the Senior Leadership team to identify the right profile for the company (who would be the right passengers on the bus).• Re-pitching the company as a career investment for ‘entrepreneurial people’ and as a place where they have an opportunity to build an “Organization for Tomorrow”.• Identifying an approach to build an emotional connect with the current employees by asking the manager to take ownership for the outcomes and move away from transactional management.• Building internal strengths to generate a positive brand image in the eyes of the prospective employees while lowering the negative perception alongside. 2011 @ People in Business India Private Limited 18
  19. 19. Case Study 3: One of India‟s largestBusiness ConglomeratesProblem Statement:• This business group operates across 7 industry sectors with multiple locations in India and globally. The company was finding it a challenge to change the market perception of a slow company to one of high growth in the market place. Younger employees felt stifled with the culture and did not tend to stay with the company. In addition, the company needed to attract graduates from the IIM/ IIT’s to partner in the journey for exponential growth.A Snapshot of Our Approach• In-depth analysis of organization’s brand perception across sectors to identify strengths and gaps• Workshops to identify distinctive and differentiating EVP for the entire group (built on the strengths of the group). This resulted in EVP for the entire group as well as for group companies.• Analysis of process touch points to enable the translation of the EVP into reality.The Group is currently engaged in implementing the Employer Brand Plan to translate thebrand promise into actual employee experience, based on our inputs. 2011 @ People in Business India Private Limited 19
