Bacon6 became an integral partner in the finance transformation programme at Tate & Lyle.  The aim was to transform our finance function to support our business strategy and ensure we have the capability in our finance population to deliver against the new agenda.  Our goal was to understand the aspirations and talents within the finance function to allow us to effectively match people to roles in our new organisation.  The Bacon6 team worked closely with Finance Leadership Team and HR stakeholders to design and deliver a series of development centres to assess the strengths and potential within the function, taking these insights they worked in partnership with local HR teams, managers and individuals to build the capability required to make the transformation a success.

In partnership with another specialist consultancy Bacon6 supported Tate & Lyle to design a series of Development Workshops aimed at benchmarking and developing the skills of professionals in their Global Finance function.

The process allowed Tate & Lyle to understand what skills, behaviours and capabilities they needed from their finance function to deliver the transformation and vision. We designed a development centre approach which informed a re-structure and culminated in the creation of individual development plans as well as ideas for an on-going development programme within the organisation. Individuals now have a clearer idea of how they can continue to support the business and develop critical relationships with the business to achieve common goals and a stretching vision.

This project was a great example of the benefits of having a team of external, objective consultants working seamlessly with HR and the business. This combination ensured that the solution was tailored and delivered high value.
