I'm looking to start a project and I'm wondering if anyone has done anything similar and has advice or guidance on where to start....
I work for a group of companies and over the years each has taken on it's own culture and way of working. Since officially becoming a group last year, we're trying to align all of the companies and get to one culture. One of the key things for me is our structure as a group, particularly at management level.
Some companies in the group refer to their line managers as "Manager" and others as "Head of". If you then take just one company, there's such a varying degree of experience and authority among all the "Head of" people that, on paper, you'd think they were all operating at the same level, but they're definitely not - some are what I would consider Managers and others are true "Heads".
So, before I try to unpick what we already have in place I need to define what our management job titles mean to us as a Group and set expectations/behaviours/competencies for each, then determine what each existing individual should be called.
But where do I start!
Is anyone happy to share what they currently do in regards to job titles and defining the levels?
(For context, we're a Financial Services group of about 120 staff)
Thanks in advance!
