Pitney Bowes Background

Pitney Bowes is a leading provider of customer communication technologies, and the number one franking machine supplier in the world.  Based onsite at their Hatfield head office the Pitney Bowes askHR team provides added value HR services to the Pitney Bowes UK workforce.

The Challenge

The existing centralised HR administration team at Pitney Bowes was under-utilised with a demoralised team. Despite operating for seven years it never met company expectations and was typified by a lack of respect from line management. It was described by management as ‘completely broken’.

The Solution

The first stage was to create an effective HR administration team, map all HR processes and establish support for the COEs.   Once the first stage was embedded, phase two involved the implementation of a dedicated Employment Relations (ER) support team and support for specialist areas such as Reward and Talent Management.

The askHR team also provides support and management of one-off projects such as TUPE and relocation.

The team is now a successful integrated part of the Pitney Bowes organisation and delivers a high level of service and response to the business.
