This month’s success story highlights how Organizational Architecture has assisted their client Montefiore conduct an HR operations audit. For more than 130 years, Montefiore has cared for Cleveland’s aging Jewish and general community. They continue to provide excellent and comprehensive care to individuals as they age and support to families by offering a full continuum of care services. Seth Vilensky, President and CEO of Montefiore, said, “As our organization and healthcare industry has grown and evolved over the years, we recognized that new developments have presented new challenges to the way our Human Resources department provides service to our employees and organization. And it can be difficult to address these challenges internally. Organizational Architecture has provided us with exactly what we needed to face these challenges: an outside perspective to assess our entire human resources function, paired with a thorough analysis of findings and suggestions of best practices to improve specific areas. Our leadership team feels much more comfortable with how we can stay strategic and proactive in addressing HR challenges as our organization continues to grow and our industry continues to evolve”. When current processes and procedures are faced with new challenges, conducting an audit of your HR function provide a strategic approach to identifying and solving any issues, whether it’s your entire HR operations or a specific function within HR like compensation or talent management.

Client success story – HR operations audit

Today’s success story highlights how Organizational Architecture can assess their client’s overall human resource function through a meaningful, focused, and thorough HR operations audit. Starting in October 2016, Organizational Architecture conducted an HR operations audit for a local nursing home and assisted-living facility to identify and address any compliance issues or areas of improvement. Senior Leadership and the Human Resources department initially contacted us to help them assess their HR function and make suggestions in areas they could improve their service. We started the assessment by conducting on-site audit meetings and interviews with key leadership members and the Human Resources department to collect data and gain a thorough, in-depth look at their current human resources processes and procedures. Areas of assessment included talent acquisition; compensation and benefits; employee and labor relations; performance management; succession planning; training, development, and orientation; legal and regulatory compliance; and recordkeeping, administration, and HR systems. Once we concluded our HR operations review, we were able to provide our client with specific findings and action items including a detailed report of the analysis, findings, and recommendations based on data collected during the audits and interviews. With our analysis, our client feels equipped with the right tools and resources to improve their current human resources function to help better service employees and the overall organization.

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!

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.
