Maintaining this focus enabled PerformHR and Resimac Group to move efficiently through the merger’s structural aspects and policy changes, ensuring both compliance and best practice were met. Aligning everyone under one framework gave Resimac Group a clear direction to move in, resulting in a smooth, successful integration.
Today, Resimac Group’s successful integration makes it one of the most successful non-bank lenders in Australia, with a loan portfolio totalling more than $12 billion, a customer count exceeding 50,000, and a thriving team of 250+ people across multiple locations.
Resimac was aware of the potential for an ‘us versus them’ mentality to develop during the merger and recognised the need to have the right people strategy in place when bringing CEOs and team members together in the newly formed organisation. They needed not only to merge teams across multiple locations but also bring together different working styles.
Rather than build a sizeable internal HR function, Resimac Group engaged PerformHR to deliver a combination of a fully managed HR partnership, with specialist industrial and employment relations support.
PerformHR helped the newly formed group to assess structural and policy changes and managed integration by adopting a flexible HR model that could adapt to the ongoing shifts.
This was delivered through a combination of onsite and virtual HR management of business-as-usual (BAU) activities.
