Our client's success stories leveraging Pillar One's frameworks
The Private Bank Division of a US Based High Tech Commercial Bank was looking to enhance its financial reporting, improve management routines and articulate a long-term transformational strategy. Over the course of six months, worked with the parent corporation’s finance teams to build relationships, increase interactivity, and create more user-friendly financial reports; mentored the product and strategy team to refine financial models and implemented monthly and quarterly business review structure. The result was that the leaders in the division were able to make better business decisions and ensure they remained on track to achieve their strategy.
A regional medical group serving over 300 physicians and nearly 150 medical offices was interested in evaluating leadership capability and areas of weakness. Pillar One was engaged by the Board of Directors to perform an assessment of the management team and leadership practices. Pillar One developed a thorough strategy and evaluation instruments to independently assess strengths and areas of opportunity. During the process, Pillar One identified the key areas of opportunity and combined those areas of opportunity with the underlying strengths to develop a comprehensive and actionable go forward strategy. As a result, they are now realizing the efficiencies of continued communication and employee engagement has increased by over 48%.
Leadership at this global business and technology consulting firm contacted Pillar One to evaluate and enhance their global talent acquisition function. During this engagement, Pillar One lead the recruitment function and made key improvements to the recruitment and onboarding processes. We assessed the current deficiencies and implemented several strategies such as ramped-up employment branding, standardizing external messaging, highlighting and elevating the current team and installed a new leader for the function. As a result, the Recruitment team has increased their in-bound candidate flow by 42% and the company’s employee retention has improved by 13%.
A start-up in the micro-mobility industry needed a senior finance resource to lead the finance team and build out the financial infrastructure. Pillar One provided a fractional senior finance executive to develop financial projections, interface with potential investors and manage investor relations, build out and manage the data analytics practice, and to establish and maintain the day to day financial processes and reporting. This fractional executive was integrated into the senior leadership team of the organization to bring the start-up from the launch of the product through the first two years of operations.
I've worked with Pillar One for over 2 years across their vast areas of expertise and can say it's hard to match their professionalism, thoroughness and overall approach to ensure the best solutions for our company. As a young start-up, these are always important and not always realized, but in working with Pillar One it was a given.
