Competency Identification & Development
Although not a new concept, competency modeling has recently received renewed and increasing support in the Human Resource field. The traditional definition of competency is an underlying characteristic of an individual or team that can be shown to predict effective or superior performance in a job or situation.

The identification of competencies at each level — total organization, business unit, department, and individual — lays the foundation for sound human resource processes. Once created, competency lists are highly valuable and our Human Capital consultants help clients leverage them in a variety of ways including:

  • Customizing human resources processes, particularly selection
  • Creating tools & reports for assessing performance
  • Updating job descriptions
  • Adapting surveys & development plans to reflect the competencies identified
  • Creating competency-based career development & succession strategies
  • Developing or customizing training programs to reinforce competency models

Human Capital Research
As Industrial & Organizational Psychologists, we work toward advancing the science of organizational dynamics and human capital consulting whenever possible. This scientific body of knowledge may include the development of valid and reliable tools for selecting targeted roles for employees, the identification of causal connections between work environment characteristics and productivity, and predictors of success in various roles in specific industries.

  • Identifying High Potentials
