Client success story – Keith D. Weiner & Associates

Client success story – Keith D. Weiner & Associates

By on Sep 19, 2017 in Blog, Success Stories, Talent Acquisition | 0 comments

This month’s success story highlights how Organizational Architecture assisted its client with a recruiting challenge. Keith D Weiner & Associates Co., LPA is a creditors’ rights law firm founded in 1985 with offices in Ohio and Wisconsin.  Their practice is limited to commercial and retail collections, foreclosures, bankruptcy, replevins, evictions, and civil litigation related to these areas.  They strive to build rewarding and long-lasting attorney/client relationships based upon a foundation of value, accountability, reliability, and integrity. They found they needed help filling their Human Resources Manager position.  We stepped in to assist them with the sourcing, screening, and selection process for their new HR leader. We began this project by having discussions with the firm’s leadership team about the position and its responsibilities as well as the role of HR in a law firm.  Before engaging with any potential candidates, we needed to understand the position description and skills necessary to be successful in this role to ensure we found the right person for the job. Keith D. Weiner, founder and principal of the firm said: Organizational Architecture helped simplify the recruitment process and guided us to find the right person for this opening.  They listened to our needs, asked insightful questions, and took the time to clearly understand what we were looking for and how this role fit into our firm.   They kept us informed throughout the process and took into consideration our feedback every step of the way.  They helped us determine exactly what competencies and technical expertise were needed to perform the duties required of the job and found candidates with those skills.  They also helped us consider the applicants’ strengths and how they would complement our team and lead our HR, personnel administration, and payroll functions.  They provided quality guidance, support, and expertise throughout the engagement.   The candidate we selected had all the characteristics we were looking for…we are extremely pleased with our experience working with Organizational Architecture. Spending time evaluating the responsibilities of the role before searching for candidates is critical for successful recruitment.  Identifying these screening criteria helped make our recruitment fast, efficient, and effective.

Client success story – Cuyahoga County Public Library

By on Jul 18, 2017 in Blog, Government and Public Sector, Success Stories, Talent Acquisition | 0 comments

This month’s success story is an example of how Organizational Architecture assisted its client with an executive level recruiting challenge. The Cuyahoga County Public Library offers the very best in public library service in the nation. The library is focused on being the center of community life and is dedicated to creating an environment where reading, lifelong learning, and civic engagement thrive. Recently, their Human Resources Director retired.  Since we had worked with the Library before and knew the organization well, they asked us to assist them with the sourcing, screening, and selection process for their new HR leader. Before we even started to engage with the talent market for this role, we had discussions with the Library leadership team about the role and its responsibilities.  We discussed the unique role of HR in public sector employers and the critical need for a good understanding of labor relations. Sari Feldman, Executive Director of the Cuyahoga County Public Library said: Organizational Architecture facilitated an incredibly positive recruitment experience for CCPL.  They demonstrate a thoughtful and organized approach to uncover the unique needs of the organization and the role, and then to find the right people.   They asked strong questions and clearly understood our needs.  Additionally, they kept us apprised throughout the process, and within a short period of time provided us with an outstanding slate of candidates to meet.  They helped us consider the candidates’ strengths and how they would complement our leadership team, lead our HR function, and support our employees.  They provided quality guidance and support throughout the process.   The candidate we selected brings all the things we were looking for and more…we could not be more pleased with our experience working with Organizational Architecture. Spending time at the front end of the search to fully understand the role and the organization is critical. Identifying these screening criteria helped make our recruitment fast, efficient, and effective. Do you need assistance with a strategy for effective recruitment?
