Client success story – Athens Foods

Client success story – Athens Foods

By on Mar 29, 2018 in Blog, Compensation Consulting, Success Stories | 0 comments

This month’s success story features our work with Athens Foods.  We were asked to assist with updating their compensation system and provide information on best practices to help them remain competitive. Athens Foods is the world’s largest producer of fillo dough and fillo products, including convenient, pre-baked Mini Fillo Shells. Since 1958 they’ve been perfecting fillo. Athens® is committed to continually creating new recipes, gourmet appetizers, handmade desserts, and a full array of fillo delicacies. Bob Tansing, Chief Financial Officer at Athens Foods, said: Organizational Architecture brought a fresh set of eyes to our compensation practices.  They took the time to thoroughly evaluate our needs and understand our organization.  They also made valuable recommendations to improve our compensation practices.   We pay close attention to labor rates and have developed useful tools to understand the competitive landscape.  But we wanted to know if there were ways to enhance our current system as well as learn best practices and what other organizations are doing. Organizational Architecture gave us a good perspective on what approaches are being used, how to enhance our compensation philosophy, and what merit increase trends they are seeing. Organizations of all types and sizes can use help to assess if their compensation program is driving the results they want. Implementing basic compensation tools, systems, and policies can make a world of difference in your reward strategies.

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.
