Bill Giesler

President and CEO, PEDCO

Developing a comprehensive plan for HR that is in alignment with the overall business strategy.

Client

PEDCO is an engineering and architecture consulting firm with about 80 employees, based in Cincinnati. A Aliniti partner since 2009.

Challenge

When Bill Giesler became the President and CEO of PEDCO he had a new vision for what the company’s HR program could be. Instead of just providing benefits, he wanted to be strategic about employee development, training, reviews, and promotions.

Solution

The Aliniti team worked on developing a comprehensive plan for HR at PEDCO that is in alignment with the overall business strategy. And then, we divided it into goals that could be achieved over time.

To help PEDCO, our solutions included:

  • Participation in PEDCO’s strategic planning process, and helping to refine the organizational structure.
  • Writing employee job descriptions, performance indicators, and performance reviews and accountabilities.
  • Facilitating personality TriMetrix® assessments for the Management Team.
  • Establishing a rewards and recognition process for employees.
  • Conducting the annual employee engagement and satisfaction survey, including summary report and recommendations.

Results

Bill Giesler is confident that Aliniti was the right partner, “We didn’t need to hire someone full-time, but we needed a highly qualified resource to help us. We needed to get an HR program up and running for a company of 80 people, and Aliniti was the right company to do just that.”
