- Management Team Development; Performance Mangagement. For two years, Robbie was retained as the consultant for Pharmatech, Inc., a regional clinical research organization, and worked closely with the company's President and Director of Projects. During the business start-up phase, she managed recruiting and was a key partner in developing a highly effective management team. Her ongoing work included facilitating top management in the development of a vision statement and strategic plan, developing sound personnel policies and procedures, performance management counseling, and presentation of communication and conflict management training.
According to the Director of Projects, the outcome of Robbie's consulting work was a significant contribution to the company's 400% expansion of staff, multi-million dollar increase in revenues, and growth to a nationwide business.
- Restructuring of a Human Resource Department. Ms. Glantz was retained by an aviation-related corporation to restructure the Human Resource Department with a goal of improving internal customer service to its 3600 employees. The process included 1:1 interviews with Program Directors and Human Resources staff, job analysis, review of HR functions and processes, and assessment of overall communication strategies to branch sites.
Outcomes included successful implementation of a restructured Human Resource Department with ongoing process improvements, higher levels of HR team program recommendations for recruitment and retention, and improved customer service. Other improvements included: faster turn around time for inquiries and actions, continuous coverage during business hours, establishment of a help desk so customers could reach a "live body," and cross job training to provide continuity of service and job enrichment for incumbents.
- Change Management. Ms. Glantz worked with the Deputy Regional Director of Region 6 of the Fish and Wildlife Service to meet congressionally mandated implementation of a new ecosystem management approach. Region 6 was enduring budget cuts and mandates to reduce staff. Robbie collaborated with top management to strategize a change initiative, including the formation of a Regional Facilitation Team (RFT) and its mission to provide leadership, support, and guidance to newly formed Ecosystem Teams. Robbie assisted in the development and implementation of team training throughout Region 6, which included the development of a work plan describing specific action items and time frames for ecosystem implementation.
The outcome of this project was timely implementation of the congressional mandates with a communication and change management plan to ease the transition, and maximize buy-in and participation from field personnel.
