Are you a newer organization that has to develop your Human Resources function?  Recently, Organizational Architecture worked with a company that was just starting on the path of building its HR function, and needed some help assessing what they were doing and how to build their HR processes the right way.

ALICE Training Institute was founded in 2013.  The ALICE [Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate] Training instructor-led classes provide preparation and a plan for individuals and organizations on how to more proactively handle the threat of an aggressive intruder or active shooter event. Whether it is an attack by an individual person or by an international group of professionals intent on conveying a political message through violence, ALICE Training option based tactics have become the accepted response, versus the traditional “lockdown only” approach.

Since they had been in business for several years, we performed a review of their HR practices to make sure they were in full compliance.  Then, we turned our focus to improving processes to ensure the HR function was operating effectively and efficiently.

Dave Mueller, Chief Executive Officer, said:

We contacted Organizational Architecture to help us make sure we were operating in a compliant manner, and to ensure we were building effective processes to ensure our people were treated in a fair and consistent manner.  They didn’t let us down.


Not only did they review our programs and make recommendations to ensure we were compliant and efficient, they also assisted us with building an employee relations model that was responsive to employees and helped our supervisors become more effective at leading their people.

The mission of ALICE Training Institute is to SAVE MORE LIVES.  Their program is critical to helping ensure people have an effective response to active shooter situations. Most organizations could benefit from their training. If you would like to learn more, contact us and we can connect you with their Program Management team to get your training scheduled.
