We are pleased to share that Organizational Architecture has been certified as a Veteran Owned Small Business.  This program is part of the US Department of Veteran Affairs and ensures that government set-aside funds are awarded to legitimate firms owned and controlled by Veterans. OA participated in a lengthy verification process over several months.  Besides the recognition of being a Veteran Owned Small Business, this certification will help us reach new clients. It will also give us opportunities to work more closely with government and other public agencies. Want to learn more about us and our human resources consulting services?

As we mentioned a few weeks ago, we’ve had some staff changes here at Organizational Architecture.  We are pleased to welcome Melissa Pfeiffer-Fiala as our new Project Support Specialist.  Melissa started on May 15, 2017….well, actually that is her ‘official’ start date. Since the beginning of 2017 she worked part-time while in school on some of our marketing efforts. Other experiences prior to Organizational Architecture include website development and social media accounts management for a real estate company. Melissa graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics and Minor in Actuarial Science from Walsh University in April 2017. While attending Walsh, Melissa completed an independent and original research project evaluating the effectiveness of online social media sites for expanding personal networks. Feel free to connect with Melissa on Linkedin.com. Please join me in welcoming Melissa to our team!  ...

Hail and farewell

Hail and farewell

By on May 8, 2017 in Blog, Recognition | 0 comments

In the naval service we have a tradition of sending off our shipmates with a ceremony that acknowledges their service and wishes them success at their next duty station.  This tradition is referred to as Hail and Farewell.  Usually, as we say goodbye to one person we are welcoming another [see below].  It is a bittersweet tradition but is part of how we maintain the continuity in the service. Cody Bees has accepted a new HR role with a large company here in Cleveland, Ohio.  I am pleased that his experience at OA has prepared him for this new endeavor and I wish him nothing but the best as we go from being co-workers, to colleagues, and always friends. Cody’s last day is Friday May 12 2017.  Stay connected to him on LinkedIn.com here. I want to reassure you that an orderly transition of his work is underway and that we hope to be introducing you to a new OA team member to you shortly.  Meantime, feel free to direct your questions to me, and join me in congratulating Cody!...

Cody Bees participates in the Cleveland Leadership Center Civic Leadership Institute

Project Specialist Cody Bees recently participated in the Cleveland Leadership Center’s Civic Leadership Institute program. The Civic Leadership Institute gives a behind the-scenes look at the community… the past, the present, and the future. Participants learn about community issues from top local leaders and gain a greater understanding of the interconnectedness of community assets, organizations and issues, as well as how they each impact the local public and private landscapes. Cody comments, “CLI has so much to offer everyone, whether you’re a Cleveland native or brand new to the city. I gained such a greater understanding of our history, economy, infrastructure, education system, and arts and culture. Not only do you walk away from the program with such great knowledge, but the Cleveland Leadership Center presents a vast amount of opportunities for you to become an active leader in our community.” Cody participated in several sessions over the winter to learn more about civic engagement in Cleveland, and meet other professionals working in Northeast Ohio.  Participating in this program is part of Cody’s development program as a young professional.  Well done, Cody!
