English term or phrase: getting to his feet
Digby once worked for a business that started life as a division of another company. He arrived just as the new outfit was {getting to his feet} and found “the departing ‘engineers’ shoved everything into a fairly small server room, with three racks in an L-shape, cabled it up to get it working, and then buggered off.”
另,既然主语是the new outfit,为什么不说getting to its feet呢?

Outfit 指公司,因此其后用its、his或her都可以。

the outfit 也有可能是指全套设备,也就是这些设备都被架设好、准备好运行了。因为是集体名词,因此用单数的his。作者没有用its,是因为这里是拟人用法。
