Organizational Design & HR Structure

Many HR functions face increasing expectations with limited resources, often turning to restructuring for the answer. HR departments strive to engage in more strategic work and decrease time spent on non-core and administrative tasks. A well-designed HR structure enables both HR strategic effectiveness and organizational performance is typically the result of intentional action vs evolving organically. Poor structures can delay decision making and impede communication, workflows, and employee engagement, resulting in costly overhead and waste. There is no one-size-fits-all HR structure, as each HR function has different strategic objectives, clients, and employee value propositions. Optimize HR structure to ensure resources are allocated where they will have the biggest impact. Design for the future, and prepare to iterate. No structure can operate at the extremes - a fully centralized structure with no flexibility is frozen; a fully decentralized structure with no control is anarchy. McLean & Company offers our members practical, step-by-step project blueprints, training, tools, templates, assessments, and surveys to help HR leaders identify a restructuring strategy and fit-for-purpose HR structure based on the organization’s strategy. In addition, expert guidance and interactive workshops are also available across a range of topics to enhance and accelerate project completion.
