Remploy is an organisation which provides employment placement services for disabled people. It is a major welfare-to-work provider, delivering a range of contracts and employment programmes for people with substantial barriers to work. Between 2009 and 2014, it found 100,000 jobs for disabled people.
Remploy was awarded a significant Government contract requiring them to deliver tangible employment results within the South Yorkshire and Derbyshire area. Remploy commissioned us to develop their Project Management Office (PMO) and lead its evolution to enable the rapid growth of the business and a newly defined operating model.
Remploy now have a solid platform and in-house capability, enabling future growth
Remploy embarked on a mission to radically improve its project and programme capability through the design of a company-wide governance structure. We worked closely with Remploy's Employment Services division to embed a project management methodology and toolkit while working to improve the team's capability, skills and retention.
In 2009 Remploy and the National Leadership and Innovation Agency for Healthcare (NLIAH) joined forces to design and deliver a European Social Fund and Welsh Assembly Government-funded employment programme - Wellbeing through Work. Following staff changes and slipping milestones, Remploy commissioned Nine Feet Tall to support the new Programme Director to define the organisational structure and infrastructure upon which the contract could successfully be delivered.
Nine Feet Tall provided the "glue" to our structure and people at a time of upheaval and staff changes - I would have no hesitation in commissioning them again.Stuart SilcoxNLIAH, Vice Chairman, WtW Executive Board
