Leading With Humanity During a Crisis.

COVID-19 created an economic crisis where millions of livelihoods—nearly affecting half of the global workforce—were threatened. Many were compelled to undergo an organisation restructure, leaving C-Suite and HR executives scrambling for resources to develop a redundancy program and transition plan in a hurry.

The People Shift was created not only to support leaders and decision-makers during this trying time but also to help them discover the value of treating employees with dignity and respect when handling any crisis.

This is what our clients are saying about us.

"Jamie is one of Australia’s most accomplished and innovative Human Resource professionals. Over a three-year period, Jamie led a team that designed and executed Australia’s most successful restructuring project.

The approach taken by Jamie and the team resulted in 98% of impacted employees finding new employment, maintaining or improving their skills and ensuring that the plant prior to closing had the best safety, quality attendance and cost outcome.

Importantly, the teams focus on ensuring that the ‘last car was the best car’ built in Australia was delivered with the vehicle residing in the Museum of Australia in the nation’s capital. Jamie is an accomplished public speaker having shared his experiences as a leader in challenging times with audiences across the globe."

GENERAL MOTORS
“At the Adelaide Casino, we have had the opportunity to work with Getgood Consulting over a number of programs. Their guidance in our change programs was incredibly detailed and valuable.

We were excited to engage Jamie after watching the impressive redundancy and transition programs that his team carried out with Holden. The Holden closure program was such a significant event in Australia and we watched the positive results via the National media that streamed regularly.

As a result, I would highly recommend the redundancy process that Getgood Consulting has developed.”
Cameron Tannock
GENERAL MANAGER
ADELAIDE CASINO
“Jamie and his HR Team ran an incredible redundancy process at Holden that was so supportive to all of the impacted individuals, including managers like us who had to deliver the message to our staff.

The Assessment and Selection process was evidence-based, extremely thorough and was heavily focused on a fair outcome for the individuals and business. Their level of engagement with us as Managers throughout the process ensured we were not only informed but involved in the process which delivered consistency throughout the program from beginning to notification stage.

With the redundancy notifications themselves, we as leaders had clear guidelines, scripts, training and timelines so we knew how to handle the employees sensitively and allowed us to be consistent in our approach.”
