Every organization strives to cost-effectively manage its material and human resources to deliver sustainable and long-term value to its stakeholders. As a member of the Phylmar Affiliate Network Inner Circletm, Occupational-Environmental Control, Inc. (OECI) brings together and leverages a network of more than 500 environmental, health, and safety (EHS) and social responsibility (SR) consultants in more than 50 countries at the right place and at the right time. OECI here helps its clients deliver compelling business results.
Reducing the time consuming effort and cost to source and contract with high quality, senior EHS and SR consultants throughout the world. Our clients save precious time by not having to negotiate contracts and spending considerable effort to locate and validate the right partner. Using OECI as an intermediary conserves precious human resources and capital. Most of the affiliates are small or medium sized firms with lower overhead than large organizations, and we pass on the savings to our clients. The senior affiliates do the work themselves or are intimately involved in the project management, unlike many larger organizations where the senior staff “sells” the work, but the junior staff does the work.
Reducing complexity by relieving you of the project management burden associated with worldwide EHS and SR initiatives. All administrative processes flow through OECI, thereby expediting and simplifying the contracting process. After a master consulting agreement is in place with the client, all invoicing from the affiliates (our local EHS or SR experts) goes to OECI and is consolidated into one invoice for each project and sent to the client on a semi-monthly basis. The client does not have to deal with multiple vendor contracts or invoices.
Creating sustainable value for all stakeholders is a key component to the long term success of any project. A process of value identification is an important step in the OECI project process. Together, the value and key metrics of the outcomes are identified and agreed upfront. OECI facilitates the work in a manner which is transparent, involves all identified stakeholders, and works with them to ensure the impact of projects are value added, long term while minimizing the clientÂ’s cost and direct project time.
