With over 62 happy clients, here is what a few have to say about us:

  • "Alisdair helped Acciona deliver the implementation of Workday and a new payroll system in one of the most challenging environments that we have ever faced. He initially focused on just the Workday implementation, which had to be adapted from the Global configuration to the local requirements, to then move to assume also the coordination of the Payroll migration from three different systems to a brand new eco-system with its particular configuration which combined self-developed proprietary software with best of breed systems. This had to be done not only in the middle of the COVID pandemic, but also halfway through the acquisition of Lendlease which tripled the number of employees, introduced new complexities in relation to employing entities, Payroll and EBAs, and required a high level of coordination between Lendlease and ACCIONA leadership , to guarantee a seamlessly transition in a safe manner, to bring across all relevant data and systems.

    There was a “before and after” Alisdair joined our team to help us with this project, as he brought a clear and effective methodology to guide the business in the implementation, with discipline and governance rules, helping us to define and meet achievable milestones that resulted in a very well tailor made implementation in a timely manner, for the Australian and NZ businesses within the Global framework.

    The tools he brought, his personal approach to an effective way of dealing with internal and external resources and his highly professional work ethic, helped us keep the teams aligned, focused and progressing as required, despite changing requirements and multiple other challenges.

    I believe Alisdair is a well-rounded Project Director who I will have again working for me if I had to approach a new HRIS implementation or HR transformation undertaking in the future."

    Pilar Gomez Fabra

    Chief Human Resources Officer, Acciona

  • "We were recommended Alisdair from one of our Board members in the rebuild of our website and platform. Alisdair has been fantastic with helping us through each stage of the process and working with the developers, designers and my team. Having someone like Alisdair on your side as you go through this process... is a hugely valuable asset."

    Steve Torso

    Managing Director, Wholesale Investor

  • "Alisdair started with Optiver originally tasked to help us gather and document our internal business requirements with the purpose of being to help us select a new HR Management System. We saw Alisdair's potential and skill in this area and asked him to stay on to help us conduct an in-depth assessment on the HR System landscape and then to assist in rolling out Workday across APAC. Optiver has also engaged him to rollout a new regional payroll solution and to help consult on the global website. Having now been with Optiver for 16mths, Alisdair is a pleasure to work with and a valued expert to help us in delivering these key projects."

    Irene Frisby

    Head of Talent Engagement & Experience APAC, Optiver

  • "Alisdair and the Digital Rehab team have been working with the Coates team for over 18 months and during this time have successfully delivered our new company intranet, first release of our Customer Portal mobile app, and the Fleet Portal which houses all our technical and safety documentation and information. The Digital Rehab team are been terrific in managing the entire process from scoping, stakeholder management, business case formation, solution definition and specification, vendor liaison, project management throughout the front end design, build and implementation, governance modelling and documentation, training of staff and release and deployment"

    Leigh Ainsworth

He made an efficient but comprehensive assessment of our environment and needs and matched these with the functionality offered by a potential vendor. He then worked with that vendor to improve the user interface of their system so it better met our requirements. He undertook all of this in a professional, fast and efficient manner and I can highly recommend his services"
