Succession planning.   Are you ready for unexpected loss of key knowledge, skills, and judgment (competencies) from employee departures?  Our competency-based succession planning process helps you four ways:


Performance management and staff development.  We’ll help you establish a Performance Management System that supports employee achievement and improvement:


Onboarding & Transitioning.  How well and how fast your new hires acquire the knowledge, behaviors, and relationships to become effective contributors determines their ultimate success.   We include a 100-day onboarding support for each candidate we place, and can help you develop similar plans for other new hires and transfers. 


Retention strategies.  We help you develop strategies, plans and programs to reduce turnover and retain your top talent:


Employee policy and job document reviews. Missing or outdated policies and job descriptions can hinder hiring and retention. In some cases, it can even contravene the law or be a barrier to organizational accreditation.  We provide policy and job documentation services to ensure compliance, relevance, and completeness.
