What Clients Say

In a complex organization like ours, we must manage current issues, plan for the future and maintain a respect for our history of regional autonomy, all at the same time. WMS made that job easier for us. We have a common way to align goals, performance management, 360-degree feedback and succession planning. Throughout the process, Ms. Heet was sensitive to our history and the need to foster management ownership for our human assets throughout the organization.

How to best consolidate four separate recruiting functions and achieve better outcomes? My advice is to call Workforce Management Strategies. With the help of WMS, we redesigned our recruitment process, identified roles and responsibilities with the new structure and put the right people in the right jobs to staff our newly formed divisional Talent Acquisition group. One year later, we have moved our 1st year turnover from 50.6% to 21.2% and we received a 2009 Richmond All Star Employer Award for "Best Recruitment, Engagement and Retention Practices." We are definitely hiring better employees in less time and retaining talent more effectively. Thanks Nancy!

Finding an experienced leader to help us work through all the human resources aspects of divesting two of our business units was a major challenge. I'm so glad we decided on Workforce Management Strategies. When the divestiture was complete, there were no unexpected HR surprises for either party and everyone was well informed.

-David Jones, Senior Vice President
Bon Secours Health System

Before we selected our HCM technology, Workforce Management Strategies led us through an evaluation of our current performance management tools and practices. Each of our regions had their own way of doing things. With skilled facilitation and knowledge of best practices provided by Workforce Management Strategies, we were able to achieve common tools and practices that more closely tie each individual's work to the objectives and values of the organization. Now every manager is clear on what he/she is accountable for and how it advances Bon Secours Health System.

Growth has its own rewards and risk: and we needed to better manage the risk part of our successful business situation. We needed to build an HR function to ensure proper management of an expanded workforce and show the value that HR brought to the boardroom table. WMS was a great partner. They developed one of our employees — new to HR responsibilities — into an effective HR leader.

-Carl Eichenberger, COO/CFO
Town and Country Bank

When a consultant exceeds expectations, it is worth noting. Initially, we expected that Workforce Management Strategies would help us find a performance management technology. We ended up with much more than that — an integrated human capital management solution. Now, we have a best practice method for setting and aligning goals, performance management, 360-degree feedback, development planning and succession management. On top of that, Nancy Heet helped us develop a three-year plan that has guided us as we make ongoing, related decisions and implement deeper in our organization.

-Lisa Reynolds, System Director Organization Effectiveness

We are operating at a new level of strategic talent management. With guidance from WMS, we were able to find HCM technology in a timely way that also fit into our budget. The result is that we have just what we need to support career development, talent reviews, learning management and performance management across our entire enterprise.

-Jack Owczarczak, Vice President
Ralcorp Holdings, Inc.

Adopting a real pay-for-performance system meant that our managers need to be more accountable; to make better people-decisions. But, we didn't have the right tools in place. WMS made sure we found the best solution. Today, our people know how their contributions relate to our business strategy and their performance is reflected in their compensation.

-Rex Budde, President/CEO
Southern Illinois Healthcare

Our annual offsite meeting focused on the interdependency of several departments within our organization. After listening to our golas, Nancy came up with appropriate ideas to generate interaction and she ultimately facilitated an effective teambuilding experience. She was very flexible and easy to work with.
