This month’s success story highlights how Organizational Architecture assisted its client Ohio Travel Bag with an analysis of their HR processes. Established in 1908, Ohio Travel Bag is the leading supplier of components, fasteners, and hand tools to the luggage, case, trunk, handbag, leathercraft, garment hardware and shoe industries. They also provide a popular line of gifts and travel accessories for retailers. Michael Fox, President of Ohio Travel Bag, said, “Organizational Architecture provided us with just the expertise we were looking for. We knew what needed to be reviewed but did not have the resources internally to conduct the analysis. We were very impressed with the review and analysis of our employee compensation and performance management system. Their benchmarking analysis was detailed and thorough, and gave us a better picture how our overall organization compensated our employees compared to the market. They were also able to provide us with real, actionable suggestions and tools that could be put into place right away to help enhance our performance management system”. There are many different components that must be considered to develop an effective HR function. Organizational Architecture is here to help, whether you need assistance with one specific area within HR or a complete overhaul of your HR strategy.

Today’s success story highlights how Organizational Architecture can assist smaller organizations with improving their HR processes. Our client in specialty goods wholesaling reached out to us after a change in ownership to help review some of their HR functions as they were reviewing all other operational functions. There were two specific areas that our client wanted us to review: compensation and their performance management system. Regarding compensation, they wanted a better understanding of how competitive their pay was relative to the market for a variety of jobs. We conducted a benchmarking analysis and provided them market data for both base and incentive compensation for those selected jobs. The second area we reviewed was their performance management system. We analyzed their current system and then provided them with suggestions on specific elements that should be added to their current system or ways they can be improved. Items analyzed included employee policies, the corrective action process, and the performance appraisal forms and procedures. Our analysis provided them with the right information and tools to help build out a workforce strategy that also supported the overall business strategy.

This month’s success story highlights how Organizational Architecture has assisted The Centers for Families and Children with an executive compensation study. The Centers for Families and Children is one of the oldest and largest nonprofit human service organizations in Northeast Ohio. Through innovation and leadership we strengthen the community by providing individuals and families with life-changing solutions to lead healthier and more successful loves. We employ an integrated strategy to improve the lives of those we serve through integrated behavioral health, primary care, early learning, and workforce services. Last year, The Centers served more than 23,000 people throughout Cuyahoga County. Kerry Bohac, Vice President Human Resources and our partner on this project, said, “Over the past year or so, we started down the path of developing an executive compensation program to ensure our leadership team was being compensated fairly and competitively. With shifting priorities and limited bandwidth, we decided to bring in Organizational Architecture as the experts to assist us with completing this task. Their insights have really given us a strong foundation for defining and implementing our executive compensation program. Not only have they given us market data to compare, but they have identified other elements and components of an executive compensation program that were suitable for our organization”. There are many different components that must be considered when developing an executive compensation program. Organizational Architecture is here to help, whether you need assistance with executive compensation or your overall compensation philosophy.

Client success story – executive compensation study

By on Feb 13, 2017 in Blog, Compensation Consulting, Success Stories | 0 comments

How organizations compensate and reward employees can already be a challenge to attract and retain top talent, and it becomes more challenging when we start to look at how we compensate our executives. This month’s success story highlights how Organizational Architecture assisted a large not-for-profit organization headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio with an executive compensation study. Our client wanted us to review their executive compensation program for their five top executives. To kick off the project, we reviewed our client’s current practices and identified the different cash and non-cash compensation components of their programs. From there, we located and analyzed market data to provide current benchmarks for each position. After our analysis, we provided a detailed data summary of our findings for the executive’s cash compensation and how they currently compared to the market. Our final report also included suggestions on developing short-term incentive plans such as a more structured bonus plan, as well as other forms of compensation that are commonly found in executive compensation programs for similar organizations and industries. Whether you are developing an executive compensation program or an overall compensation program for your organization, having a formal compensation program provides a simple and effective tool to communicate and engage with your employees and the external labor market about your organization’s compensation philosophy.
