Interim Management in the Services Sector

MANAGERIM provides you with interim managers who are experts in the services sector to help you meet your transformation challenges

In developed countries, the service sector is the largest in terms of the number of persons employed. It is divided between:

  • Market / Commercial services (financial activities, business services, services to individuals, accommodation and catering, real estate, consulting, information, communication, advertising, etc.)
  • Non-Market/Commercial services (human health, social work, public administration, education, etc.)

More specifically, for Personal Services, which represent a large sector of activity that includes home help for dependent persons, gardening, childcare and computer assistance, the demographic lever is one of the main factors of development, particularly with the aging of the population and the increase in life expectancy (the "Silver economy").

Companies in the sector have a large number of employees, and the management of human resources and talent is often their priority strategic asset.

The challenge for this sector is to differentiate and continuously upgrade their services. Businesses face many challenges, including:

  • Expand / develop their client portfolio
  • Innovate and offer new services to their clients
  • Strengthen and personalize the customer relationship
  • Stand out through the integration of new technologies
  • Transform their organization to be more agile and flexible
  • Accelerate the digital transformation of their tools, methods and processes
  • Drive continuous performance improvement or process redesign to further optimize cost structure
  • Increase the utilization rate of their resources
  • Boost human resources management, training, and talent management and retention policies
  • Strengthen financial performance management
  • Develop through external growth
