The IM of the Year is awarded to the individual who has made the most significant performance contribution to a client organisation.
Press Release - Prit has completed a number of interim engagements helping his clients through difficult times. "I enjoy creating order out of chaos or being at the forefront of evolution". At his recent assignment with npower, he took on the task of improving performance and customer service levels whilst reducing costs. His clients praised the speed with which he fitted in and introduced new ways of working.
The changes he had to bring about, included improving failing service levels, introducing a performance management culture. Such was his impact that the results included service levels at the contact centre increasing to 96 per cent - a 66 per cent improvement.
In tandem with this, he set in motion a number of initiatives that involved briefing management and gaining buy-in from long standing members of staff to achieve benchmark performances and capability.
