Sample Acton Experience:
Acton assisted an Alberta municipality with an organizational review of the town’s administration structure as well as a review of their operational processes. An assessment of the administrative workload and staffing requirements, as well as an assessment of the administration’s service efficiencies and effectiveness was also conducted.
Acton was able to deliver a comparison of the current level of resources and priorities to community demands and expectations, with recommended areas for change. Research was conducted by interviewing key stakeholders as well as a review of leading practices from other communities to ensure recommendations were prioritized and able to be implemented by the town’s administration.
Acton was enlisted by a Government department to develop a new organizational structure that identified key functions for each division. This process helped determine how many full time associates were required in each branch and assisted HR to identify new positions as a result of the change, as well as those that would be terminated. Moreover, a communication plan and strategy was developed with the organization’s Communications group to inform staff of the changes, in addition to briefing sessions with the Executive Committee.
