Job Architecture 
Foxway

2024

Design of a new job architecture model. Developed in close collaboration with the Foxway HR and the Foxway Management Team. The project entailed a customized front-end career path model, founded on a standardized bast practice job architecture framework. The process included a calibrated job levelling of the Foxway management team itself, the Top 40 strategic management forum, continued by a broad-based job mapping of the residual ~1,400 positions in the global organization. The new job architecture model was delivered to the Group HR Team in February 2024 following a 9 week project timeline, whereafter the cascaded implementation has been initiated with initial use for back-end support of benchmarking, salary setting and title alignment, prior to a planned internal communication to employees and people leaders, as part of the annual performance review process in 1st quarter of 2025.

Driving a comprehensive review of our organization's job architecture was essential for clarity and transparency. Teaming up with The Reward Firm & Klar Reward Agency proved invaluable; their expertise equipped us with a solid framework and practical guidance, designing our job architecture effectively. This collaboration has streamlined our processes, empowering us to manage titles and benchmark pay with greater efficiency. We truly believe that this project has been the basis for setting us on a path for scalability and future growth.

The Project

Design a new Job Architecture Model for Foxway

Project Background:

Foxway was seeking a global standard to manage rewards, including a job architecture and title management. On the back-end, the lack of global standards was evident in Foxway’s ability to govern titles and benchmark pay without a core job architecture model.

Foxway's trajectory has been characterized by rapid growth through both organic expansion and a series of acquisitions. In the past, their M&A processes did not prioritize standardization of jobs and rewards, leading to a complex and unconnected organizational structure.

As Foxway evolved and endured organizational changes, they realized the critical importance of cross-country collaboration and cohesive team structures. Standardized Job Architecture is fundamental to aligning reward systems.

The decision to prioritize the job architecture project comes from our need to lay a robust foundation for scalability and future growth. By starting here, they set the stage for a more streamlined and transparent organization, facilitating smoother integrations for upcoming mergers and acquisitions.
