A Real-life Example


Benchmark Audit

The company “Super Software” had recently suffered from workforce fluctuations and had lost a lot of employees. In the course of direct conversations with Nowak & Partner, some of these former employees stated that they had left the company due to a lack of corporate identity and team spirit. Some of the former employees even started their own competitive businesses without any legal consequences. The majority of the existing staff was also dissatisfied with the company’s employment benefits and it became obvious that they urgently needed professional training. Therefore, management contributed to the existing HR problems to a certain extent.

In direct conversations with the remaining customers it also became apparent that there was a certain lack of understanding regarding Super Software’s products. After-sales service was considered to be in need of improvement in several areas as well, and some strategies used by the sales team proved to be unclear.

Nowak & Partner identified two main concerns: business ethics and employee morale. For example, the country manager was found to have created and used a duplicate company seal without the approval of headquarters. This constitutes a criminal offense, as a corporate seal is tied to an authorized user. In addition, improper use of employee titles caused several legal consequences as well.

Nowak & Partner recommended replacing the country manager of Super Software in a controlled manner and suggested using our interim management service until a new managing director was appointed. Nowak & Partner offered to search for suitable replacement candidates.

Nowak & Partner also advised the company to create a new technical support position in order to enhance long-term communication with headquarters, while improving the technical know-how of the local employees.

Nowak & Partner's further recommendation was to implement a professional CRM system — for more efficient marketing and sales operations. In the end, the client followed all of our recommendations which led to its success in the market.
