What Our Clients Are Saying
MacLean Fogg Component Solutions, Chesterfield MI
Centering Advisors, LLC has become a key strategic partner for our Company. In this talent shortage, finding the right talent can be a challenge, let alone ensuring the talent is the right fit for the culture. Julie not only introduced us to a spectrum of new tools to ensure we put the right people in the right seats, she brought new insights on how to grow our business through and with our employees.
A year and a half ago, we were struggling with a lack of engagement on the shop floor, a mature workforce with multiple retirements on the horizon and an opening for an HR Manager. We really needed someone to help groom the plant employees for higher level positions while creating succession plans for those close to retirement. As we began discussing the HR Manager role, Julie really forced me to think about what success would look like if this person were to meet my expectations. I provided her with a job description that looks like most with a page of bullet points and she quickly pointed out to me that it did not answer the question of how success is defined. We then sat down and she asked me very pointed questions relating to activities, success measurement, priority of success and timeframes. This exercise led to the “ideal profile” of skills and behaviors needed for the role. The ideal profile combined with behavioral interviewing and assessments allowed us to be more objective and deliberate in our hiring process. Eighteen months later, we have an HR team that is engaging the plant employees, creating development plans, promoting employees internally and planning for succession.
VP & Chief Administrative Executive,
One area of the business that was really impacted by Julie’s expertise was in our sales department. We hired a new VP of Sales who was interested in evaluating the existing department structure and how his team members fit that structure. We first evaluated the current state and then focused on creating a future state based on his goals – removing the ‘people factor’ from the equation. We more clearly defined the expectations for each role while removing redundancies and including others critical to driving the business. One of the biggest AH-HA moments in this process was when we identified that one of the employees was better suited for a finance role. We ended up changing that individual’s position to the finance role, which allowed that individual to excel. The transferred employee appears much more satisfied and engaged than before. The sales department proceeded with the key hires – those with distinct experience and contacts specific to the targeted growth goals for the sales department. All of the employees affected are still employed, engaged and prospering to this day
