Learning and development

​As Human Capital advisers to some of today's most impactful companies, we'd be remiss if we didn't turn our own advice outside-in. While you're helping our clients with people issues that span across their enterprise, we're following the same principles when it comes to your career development.

One of the best examples of this idea in action is our "Develop-Deploy-Connect" model. Developed to assist companies with their talent management strategies, this model helps our clients concentrate on the things their employees care about most: developing employees in ways that expand their capabilities, deploying employees to work that engages their heads and hearts, and connecting employees with the people who can help them achieve their objectives. We apply this model to our own Human Capital practitioners and enjoy the same positive results.

By develop, we mean offering more than just traditional classroom or online education, even though there are numerous development opportunities through these channels. Rather, we mean providing the real-life learning you'll need to excel in the job. These include "trial-by-fire" simulation experiences, on-the-job learning, and lessons from peers, mentors, and others that expand your skills and grow your capabilities to help develop you as a Human Capital practitioner.

By deploy, we mean working with you to identify your skills, interests, and knowledge to help you find an effective fit within the organization and craft the role and conditions that can help you perform in a leading manner.

By connect, we mean providing you with the tools and guidance you need to build networks that enhance individual and organizational performance and help you improve the quality of your interactions with others.
