HR Skills Development

It’s been almost 20 years since organizations started the process of “HR Transformation” and for many organizations, it’s still a challenge. Often, transformation efforts focus on org design and assumptions about the skills and abilities of HR incumbents.

We take a different approach: we immerse your HR professionals in a series of validated, measured simulations that allow them to demonstrate best-in-class HR or Talent Acquisition competencies. We provide immediate feedback, personalized development plans and comprehensive data regarding the skills and needs of your team. There’s no better way to drive rapid learning and development among your HR or Talent Acquisition teams.

Talent Strategy and Analytics

We blend financial expertise and human capital acumen to understand your business strategy and the plan for growth. We then partner with business and HR leaders to analyze the talent implications of that strategy – and the current and forecasted talent demands.

We build the most realistic and relevant approach to building, borrowing or buying the talent you need – leveraging your existing infrastructure for hiring, onboarding, retaining and engaging employees. Establishing metrics and reporting standards ensure the ability to assess the plan’s effectiveness over time.

Recruitment Process Improvement

We are experts in rapidly auditing the current state of your talent acquisition function with your desired outcomes in mind. Whether your ultimate goals are driving efficiency, improving quality of hire, bringing executive search in-house, or simply stopping the noise around hiring, we will help you get it done.

First, we dive into your business strategy in order to understand what the organization expects (and demands) of the TA function. Next, we analyze data related to hiring and attrition, TA metrics, the experience of TA stakeholders, the tools, technology and practices, and the vendors and budget in play. We then leverage our proprietary talent acquisition process improvement approach, with an eagle eye on your business strategy and real-world constraints, to identify the few – most important – recommendations necessary to drive improvement. Last, we work with your team to implement these changes in a scalable, sustainable and measurable way.

Talent Management


Leveraging new ideas and measurement to drive talent management results

Our sweet spot is helping organizations design measurable talent strategies to help them prioritize the most critical HR-related work and measure the effectiveness of their investments and efforts.

HR Analytics

We blend financial and human capital management expertise to identify the talent levers that are most essential to driving business value.  From hiring to onboarding to retention, the work of HR has an impact on how effectively essential talent is sourced, assimilated and engaged – and we help you measure those efforts objectively.  In turn, we partner with HR leaders to prioritize and evaluate their HR investments.

Even in situations where it seems that there isn’t enough accurate or available information, we help HR leaders get started with simple dashboards and immediate steps to drive measurable improvement.  We partner with clients to analyze how value is created in their organization through intellectual capital, and link it directly to the efforts of the HR and TA teams.   By doing this, it’s possible to measure the quality of hiring and the effectiveness of retention efforts plus, the ultimate reward: return on human capital investments.

Assessment Centers

It’s been almost 20 years since the advent of “HR Transformation” and for many organizations, it’s still a challenge.  While HR org charts and titles might be different, the skills of the incumbents may not have changed.  When coupled with pressure from business leaders for more collaborative, results-oriented, analytical HR partners, something has to change.

Organizations turn to us for a unique, data-based and rapid approach to HR development.  For example, our HR Assessment and Development Center immerses HR professionals in a series of validated, measured simulations that allow them to demonstrate best-in-class HR or Talent Acquisition competencies.  We provide immediate feedback, personalized development plans and comprehensive data regarding the skills and needs of your team.

Have a very specific HR or TA training need?  Want to create a unique and value-added experience for an all-HR staff meeting?  Then we’ll blend the right combination of assessment, customized training and individual development to meet your needs.

You won’t find a better way to drive rapid learning and development for your HR or Talent Acquisition teams.
