"Signuum was contracted to devise a solution to a very complex employee relations issue which had a longstanding impact on our company's bottom line. They were asked to devise a strategy to transition our piece rate incentive pay system to a flat rate hourly pay system in our nonunion plants. Signuum did a great job in researching, benchmarking and developing an hourly compensation and employee relations strategy to help our plants make the transition without union organizing activity. They brought a unique skill set that no other consulting firm had, as well as a deep compensation and labor relations expertise which helped guide us through the transition. I would use Signuum again and recommend them to anyone with complex compensation and labor relations issues."
