Client success story – Wickliffe Public Library

Client success story – Wickliffe Public Library

By on Dec 17, 2019 in Blog, Government and Public Sector, HR Consulting, Public Libraries, Success Stories, Talent Acquisition | 0 comments

Organizational Architecture has been fortunate to work with many of Ohio’s public libraries including the Cuyahoga County Public Library, Stark County District Library, Cleveland Public Library, and others. We’ve even worked with their statewide professional association, the Ohio Library Council.  Our latest success story is helping the Wickliffe Public Library’s Board of Trustees select its new Library Director. The Wickliffe Public Library serves all people, addresses informational needs, and provides opportunities for lifelong learning.  Their vision is to be the destination that inspires a learning community. This summer the Board invited us to meet with them to learn more about their needs and share our expertise working with public libraries.  Board President Mary Ann Korenewych said: Some of us on the Board had experience working with search partners in our professional careers, but some hadn’t. We needed a partner that could help all of our Board members understand the process and make sure the Library’s investment in working with recruiting professionals was the right thing for our patrons and the community.   We selected OA and the project team of Mark Fiala and Ryan Sheehan to work with us based upon their experience and understanding of the needs of Ohio’s libraries.   Ryan and Mark collaborated with us each step of the way.  They provided weekly updates with their activities and the progress of their candidate screening process.  They provided us with a slate of candidates that all had the ability to do the job and at the same time brought unique skills and experience to the table.   We could not have been more pleased with their help and guidance on this project, the quality of the candidates, and the timeliness of their work.  The Board is excited to start its work with our new Director…and continue our partnership with OA. Public sector employers are one of our specialties.  Whether you are a municipality, agency, or public library system, we can help with your HR programs, including compensation benchmarking and pay structures. If you need assistance with recruiting, compensation strategies or other HR consulting needs, contact us and check out other success stories to learn...

OA supports Motogo bringing shop class back to schools

OA supports Motogo bringing shop class back to schools

By on Dec 3, 2019 in Blog, Community Support, Non Profit | 0 comments

OA is a proud supporter of Motogo.  Motogo builds confidence by providing a hands-on introduction to real world problem solving and critical thinking through the tangible avenue of motorcycle maintenance. They bring the generations of skill-building once learned in our grandfathers’ garages into the classroom. Through an industrial arts curriculum centered on a getting-your-hands-dirty application, students learn proper tool usage, measurement, calculations, and small engine operation and maintenance. Higher learning and vocational careers should not exist as mutually exclusive entities. ALL students benefit from understanding how machines work. Many schools don’t have the resources to offer shop class in-house, or transport students to an off-site location. Motogo meets students where they are. Our Bringing Back Shop Class benefit is on Saturday February 8 2020. Not only will you get to meet the Motogo team and learn more about the program and our early successes, there will be food, open bar, interactive demonstrations, silent auction and raffles, and live entertainment.  Details will be available soon. If you want to help now you can donate here. Organizational Architecture is proud to help Motogo bring these skills to students in Northeast Ohio and beyond and will be involved with helping Brian and Molly bring this program to students in 2020.
