People in Business Transformation

Aligning your strategy, transforming your business

Many organisations believe that barriers to business transformation come from deviated strategic positioning. Based on our consulting services experience, the barriers are often results of misalignment between human resources management and transformation strategy.

In view of this, we are committed to provide companies with the best operating models and solutions on people and organisation based on the companies’ transformation strategy. We assist companies with defining their strategic goals, assessing the compatible levels of current organisation structure and goals, identifying and proposing corresponding measures as well as focusing on corporate culture and team atmosphere. Business transformation also brings about the change in demands for talents and employee lifecycle. We also help corporations to find, cultivate and encourage professionals who are suitable for future business transformation and development.

How we can help

We work closely with clients from various industries including retail and consumer goods, technology, pharmaceutical health, industrial products, financial services, etc. We provide comprehensive organisation, culture and talent transformation services based on the diversified transformation scenarios that our clients are facing, including multi-brand and business diversification, internationalisation, improvement and breakthroughs of organisational capabilities, agility and customer-orientation, digitalisation, etc. PwC's extensive global network and experience allow us to provide services to many leading companies in China and abroad, and to develop localised knowledge methodology system and case study database. We are recognised as a leader in change management and business transformation for our strong capabilities in strategy execution.

New entity setup

We provide one-stop organisation and talent-related services to newly established business entities, helping companies to create an organisation and talent system that support the vision of strategic development.

In the preparation stage, we work with our clients to develop strategic planning and business models, and to clarify on the corporate governance structure. Through benchmarking against the industry and cross-industry organisations and talent management models, we provide our clients with market best practices for corporate organisational design and talent management.

During the implementation stage, we assist the new business entity to address professional issues that may arise during the process of filing and business registration, drafting of the company's charter, as well as business plan and development blueprint design. We help to design an organisational structure that supports strategic business development effectively and assist the formal appointment of the senior management team. In addition, by fully integrating shareholder interests and market benchmarks, we help to establish the equity incentive mechanism, grading and salary system for start-ups (including position grading, talent planning, capacity model based on organisational capacity and incentive assessment plan). We also work closely with the legal team to ensure employee contracts and labour contracts are legally compliant to reduce enterprise human resources risks.

Diversified ownership transformation

Based on our past experience in the reform of state-owned enterprise (SOE) ownership, we mainly assist our clients in solving the following three key issues:

  1. Help customers identify the strategic positioning of the mixed-ownership companies in the Group's future business portfolio and clarify the purpose of the mixed ownership reform. On the one hand, state-owned capital gradually exits the business while maintaining value and increasing value through mixed reform. On the other hand, choosing strategic investors with business synergy through mixed reform to enhance the competitiveness of the business, setting the general direction for future reforms with different positionings.
  2. Help the newly-reformed enterprises to build a new governance structure to meet the management requirements of SOE shareholders and external strategic investors, and clarify the scope of management responsibilities of each role to ensure that the reform will not bring extensive challenges to the existing management processes of the enterprise.
  3. Assist the company to design employee or management shareholding plan after the mixed reform, help the enterprise to realise the institutional mechanism innovation, bundle the economic benefits such as individual labour income, return on equity and other economic profits as well as long-term interests and overall profit of the enterprise. By establishing equity bond to form a stable risk-sharing and benefit-sharing mechanism and to enhance employees’ sense of ownership, encourage and motivate employees to be more proactive, creative and forward-looking.
