Ricoh UK is part of the Japanese owned multinational imaging and electronics company and provides document management solutions, IT services, commercial and industrial printing and industrial systems technology with the ultimate goal of making traditional processes more efficient and sustainable. The Ricoh UK brand has been built around the core principle of creative collaboration, with the business openly recognising its greatest asset as the imagination of its people, thereby making effective HR and Talent Management of key importance.
Ricoh UK employ in excess of 3,000 employees across the UK, with a Line Manager population of around 300. In May 2017, Ricoh UK decided to outsource their front-line Employee Relations (ER) and Line Manager HR support function to a specialist partner in order to free up the time of their in-house team of HR Advisors (HRAs) and HR Business Partners (HRBPs) from dealing with administrative ER enquiries, allowing them more time to focus on strategic and value-added HR activities. It was important to Ricoh that they entered into a partnership with an organisation that had strong operational knowledge of the business as well as a complete understanding of their cultural values.
