Organizational development is the use of organizational resources to improve efficiency and expand productivity. It is a planned effort for a work group and/or the organization, managed by leadership and supported by employees, to increase organizational effectiveness through planned change in processes and systems. Implementing organizational development requires an investment of time and money. But when you understand its importance, you can justify the costs.

Here are some of the services Platinum HR offers for Organizational Development:

  • HR Department Setup

  • HR Strategy Session

  • Organizational Restructure

  • Implementation of HR Software

Various factors affect the success of your small business, including the knowledge and abilities of your employees, technology, customers, competition and even the political environment. As a small business owner, you have to consider these factors, and more, as you make plans for business growth. Organizational development helps employers determine which processes can improve their businesses in ways that will benefit everyone from their employees to customers.

Below are some examples of how Platinum HR will assist your organization with development and change management. Each organization is unique and we will work with you to devise the best plan.

Strategic Planning

Strategic planning occurs at the highest levels of the organization. The chief executive officer lays out where he wants the company to be at certain points in time. Platinum HR will analyze where the company lacks talent, and where talent overflows. From there, we can implement a system to provide more balance. For example, we may suggest labor reductions are needed and encourage early retirement. In other cases, we might recommend layoffs, although usually as a last resort. After a thorough analysis, we also might recommend passive or active recruiting efforts, depending on the goal.

Job Analysis and Design

During restructuring or when assessing necessary changes, Platinum HR will conduct a job analyses of some or all positions in the company. This involves studying the duties involved in the positions and ensuring they align with the company’s organizational development plans. For example, let’s say the CEO wants to downsize the clerical staff, combining positions into one major administrative role. Platinum HR might review the staff’s duties, interview employees and observe their performances to decide where to trim. From there, we can design a job description for the administrative professional with higher responsibilities and possibly higher pay. This is a simple example. In reality, job analyses can get quite complex which is why Platinum HR is here to help you.

Recruitment and hiring

Depending on the organizational development assessment and plan, Platinum HR may need to find and hire new talent. We would recruit and interview candidates to decide which candidates are the best fit for the job and company and help the executive staff make decisions on whom to hire.


Assisting with organizational development means having the business savvy to project the amount of money the organization can save by cutting some jobs, merging others and creating new ones, or how spending money on certain programs can improve the business and its bottom line. Platinum HR will work with your organization to determine your profitability after changes are implemented.
