  • The issues…
    In order to achieve the targeted growth and evolution of the company, leaders identified that they needed to address:
    • Development of accountability
    • Focusing management on strategic rather than tactical work
    • Development of management skills
    • Ensuring that people with the right skill set are in the right positions
    • Development of a more healthy, performance-based culture
    • Developing and adhering to standard processes related to talent acquisition and management
    • Refining, reinforcing and stabilizing training initiatives
    Additionally, the company wanted to take a closer look at the TopGrading® program and the incorporation of competencies.
  • The approach…
    Address a host of questions related to processes and tools through conducting an audit:
    Gather volumes of sample documents and other written information
    Interview key leaders to capture key information not contained in documents
    Solicit perspectives of other leaders
    Analyze all information and present situation analysis, development opportunities and recommendations
    Assist the company with communications with leaders about this process
    Assist the company with their own analysis of the recommendations and their decision-making about “what next”
    Provide support as needed through implementation
  • Sample development opportunities & recommendations…
  • Fast-forward one year…
    • New job descriptions for all employees (rollout June 2011)
    • Managers have much clearer understanding of role differentiation
    • Job descriptions include competencies
    • How one does a job is communicated
    • Job descriptions tie with Position Blueprint
    • The objectivity of the Position Blueprintis reflected in the expectations
    • New hiring process with more robust screening is used consistently
    • Wiser decisions regarding hiring being made
    • Hiring is less based on “gut” and more on data
    • Clearer to see the “best” from the “rest”
    • Candidates share positive feelings about the process
    • Evaluations incorporate competencies (rollout June 2011/January 2012)
    • Employees recognized more comprehensively for strong performance and areas of development are more clearly articulated
  • The issues…
    In order to achieve the targeted growth and evolution of the company, leaders identified that they needed to address:
    • Development of accountability
    • Focusing management on strategic rather than tactical work
    • Development of management skills
    • Ensuring that people with the right skill set are in the right positions
    • Development of a more healthy, performance-based culture
    • Developing and adhering to standard processes related to talent acquisition and management
    • Refining, reinforcing and stabilizing training initiatives
    Additionally, the company wanted to take a closer look at the TopGrading® program and the incorporation of competencies.
