From high technology start-ups to non-profits, from construction companies to chambers of commerce, from science labs where employees handle multi-million dollar equipment to insurance associations, from privately held corporations to public organizations, we have happily served a wide variety of clients.

We have partnered with companies whose people power numbers as few as seven and with companies with teams numbering as many as six-hundred.

Clients we’ve served have revenues ranging from under three million to over four-hundred million, so far.

Here is a list of a few companies with whom we’ve partnered:

  • Newgistics
  • Communities in Schools
  • Management Information Analysis
  • Texas Windstorm Insurance Association
  • Texas Property and Casualty Insurance Association
  • Texas Medical Malpractice Association
  • Viagen Athens Group
  • Hoovers
  • Eurway Furniture Store
  • BroadJump
  • PremierHR
  • SAP Consultants
  • Scott Sani-Fresh
  • Lancer Corporation
  • City of Austin’s Design and Construction Project Engineers Division

And here is a list of some of the ways we’ve partnered to make things better:

  • Developed and conducted custom salaries and benefits surveys: How does what you’re doing compare to the current market?
  • Created strategic compensation programs from scratch: Who does what and how much they make for it,  made clear
  • Built Variable Pay Incentive Programs: Yay!  You did well.  Here’s your reward!
  • Updated infrastructure to be market competitive: Now you can strut your stuff!
  • Customized Retention Programs: We really like your work and want you to stay!
  • Customized Severance Programs: Nobody wants to talk about this, but we must.

A Before & After Look:

We helped build a Strategic Compensation Infrastructure for an affiliate marketing company.  This is where the company started:

  • Compensation plan was piecemeal
  • Pay was not looked at collectively or comprehensively
  • Job descriptions were incomplete
  • No established job ladders or career paths
  • Uncertainty about market competitiveness of the pay structure and individual employees’ pay

And this is how we changed things together by implementing a Strategic Compensation Program:

  • Job Descriptions were complete
  • Job Tracks and Levels were established
  • Career Paths became clear
  • Performance Management Programs were in place
  • Market Competitive Base Pay Salary Ranges were developed
  • Variable Pay Incentive Cash Bonus Program put into action
  • Benefits were offered
  • Recognition Programs optimized employee engagement


Dream On!

Don’t see what you are looking for here?  No matter!  Whether you are a small, start-up or a major corporation, we are prepared to help you make any move or change you can dream up.
