Building HR systems to enable and support organizational growth
Ma Foi’s structured intervention helped a leading beauty and wellness service provider to establish a standardized HR delivery platform across the organization
Due to rapid consolidation across India and a high rate of growth (60-70% YOY) of client’s business, a lack of uniformity and transparency in systems and processes resulted in reduced efficiency and profitability. Furthermore, a lack of accountability and ownership among employees affected the service standards and increased the attrition rate. Ma Foi was appointed by the client to develop its HR systems & processes, organisation structure, individual roles and responsibilities, and to implement the same so as to adapt to then current conditions and be equipped for the future.
