Client success story – Keith D. Weiner & Associates
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.
