What is stopping your
HR Transformation?

As HR consultants we’ve worked with a lot of different HR systems, sectors and cultures. We know first hand that the efficiencies, data accuracy and return on investment can suffer significantly through the poor set up of your HR software.

Recruiting a dedicated project manager can help your implementation, but what makes us unique is the addition of our HR expertise and commercial backgrounds.

Not only do we keep your project on track, we integrate with your HR team, speaking their language, getting to know their challenges and engage your wider business leaders to inform the design and configuration of new processes with impact for the whole business.

Feedback from our clients show that we add significant value by challenging, influencing and driving change to best utilise their cultures and chosen software. We don’t just do, we collaborate, lead, create, rethink and deliver results for our clients, building relationships and transformations that last.

“We started working with ReThink HR when we wanted to introduce a global HR system for our business. We operate in 6 territories across the world and, at the time, had no consistent and accurate way of managing our people data.

ReThink HR ensured that we had detailed selection criteria which took into account the need for a new system to work well in every country we operate in and also had a clear focus on employee engagement. We have a young workforce and we knew that having the ability to communicate and share good news on a new HR system would be of great benefit for the business overall.

Having reviewed a range of vendors we chose to implement Hibob and the ReThink team continued to work with us to provide additional resource for the implementation, as well as the project management and systems knowledge that our team needed to make it a success.

We have now rolled out the system to every country and added some new acquisitions along the way, all of which has been so much easier than it would have been with our previous system. Hibob has been really well received by the team and the sheer number of posts from employees globally shows that engagement with it is high.

It has been a pleasure to work with the ReThink HR team, their consultants have guided us through and supported us when we were under pressure. I would be very happy to recommend their services to any organisation looking to select or implement a new HR system.”

Stephanie James, Group HR Director

"Having been introduced to ReThink HR by Access for our PeopleXD implementation project we immediately understood that the team would be a great fit for our project. The consultants bring a wealth of experience in HR systems projects, and it was clear that they understood the process and the challenges we would face.

Upon commencement, our consultant, Sarah, immediately settled the team and helped them to understand the exact expectations for each element of the project. She was able to plan ahead to ensure we were ready for each stage and was able to foresee issues that we were not yet aware of and proactively work on resolutions, so that we were not delayed by them.

It was amazing what Sarah managed to achieve on two days per week on our project; we really appreciated the value she added by focussing her time on where she could add the most for the team and offer the support they wanted and needed.

It was a pleasure to work with Sarah and the ReThink HR team and I would not hesitate to recommend them for any HR systems project.”

"I am delighted we instructed ReThink HR to help and support Chestertons to select and implement a new HR system. Having first worked with us to identify the needs that we had for our business, the ReThink HR team were able to shortlist potential vendors down from the 100s to a manageable shortlist, which we were then able to see demonstrations for. Along with ensuring that the systems we were considering had the functionality we needed, ReThink also provided support for the demonstrations themselves so that we asked consistent questions of each vendor. They oversaw the collation of RFP responses and the indicative costings, so that we could make comparisons across each area.

Once we had selected our system, Access Group’s PeopleXD product, we retained the support of the ReThink HR team to project manage and provide hands-on implementation support from kick-off until we rolled out self-service to the teams, including supporting the parallel run process as we moved payroll provider to Access as well. The key value that the ReThink team added was their knowledge of the stages of the project and making sure that we were ready for each one. They allowed us to focus on the priority tasks at any point, rather than the overall project, which can be overwhelming at times.

Overall, we were really pleased with the support that ReThink HR provided in this project, they made the whole process less painful for all involved and I would not hesitate to recommend them to others who are looking for a new HR system or about to commence an implementation project.”

Sean Thomas, Head of People, Chestertons

"ReThink HR supported our project team through the implementation and delivery of our new HR system. Philippa was an invaluable support to our team, expertly guiding us at all times, ensuring that we could get the most out of the new product and adapting processes to support our complex organisation.

It is easy to underestimate the time and effort required during implementation of a HR system and I cannot over-emphasise the importance of the expert assistance that Rethink HR are able to provide. Philippa’s dedicated support ensured that the project deadlines were adhered to and the rollout was delivered on time. She expertly navigated the complexity of stakeholder expectation with professionalism and humour and she truly felt like one of our team. I would highly recommend ReThink HR."

HR Manager, Independent Education.

"Zoe consistently delivers value on both a strategic and operational level and has supported our business through a period of significant change. Adept at building strong and trusted relationships, Zoe is extremely personable and really connects with people; the feedback from our managers is outstanding."

Gaynor Syed, COO, NLA (Retained HR Client).

"Abbey has been an extension of my team and I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is detailed in her thinking, challenges as if she works for our business and always delivers on what she says."

Laura Bunn, Director of HR & Development, Roadchef (HRIS Project).

"The support and commitment to the project was invaluable... Zoe built solid relationships within the company which were crucial to the project and really took on board what we as a business wanted to get from the system."

Chloe Quinn, Head of HR, PA Media Group (HRIS project)

"Having an expert and dedicated resource has been essential to keep momentum on the project with a HR team that is already working at full capacity. Without the support of Philippa and Abbey we would not be in the strong position we are in now to keep improving the service we provide to the wider School with the help of the data from our HR system. Working with the ReThink HR team has been a pleasure, I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

Anna Tomlinson, HR Director
