Let’s create a community career path!

Do your workers jump to another company when there is an opportunity for a higher salary and more responsibilities?  Is this drain a challenge for you to fill?  Or is this an opportunity to build a broader talent pipeline that can benefit you as well as others in your community.

In this short video, Let’s create a community career path!, I outline a method to connect organizations using a set of common role profiles with a focus on creating collaboration instead of competition for talent and leveraging the knowledge acquired by the person from each member business to strengthen their own talent pool.  This is based on a common agreement around key technical skills and behavioral competencies.  Build on the strength of the community and create ways to build on each other’s training and work practices to establish common values and accepted levels of defined proficiency.  This allows you to know that when a supervisor has mastered time management and staff scheduling at one place that they don’t have to be re-trained at another.  The key to this, based on the common agreement on role responsibilities, is to develop and use a shared microcredentialing model so everyone knows who can “do” the job in terms of performance capabilities.

Check out the video and see why this could help employers better qualify future employees and reduce recruiting time, employee turnover, and cost of retraining.

Behavioral skills are tomorrow’s success!

There is a lot of talk about the challenges in hiring and recruiting skilled employees. To make it more concerning industry analysts are warning employers that college graduates that meet technical job-specific skills today will need to upskill and be trained for the same role in about 6 years.

Perhaps it’s time to examine the real needs of the organization today and in the next 24 to 36 months. New research on successful candidates reveal the need employers have is centered more on behavioral skills so while technical skills might get you the job it is the competencies, behavioral skills, around communication, adaptability, prioritization and time management, working on and with teams – these Higher Order Thinking Skills are needed for employees to be successful operating across functional, organizational, and time-defined boundaries.

Check out this video and let’s discuss how we can partner with you to define the real-world behavioral skills these roles need and create the path forward to bring people with purpose into a productive environment.
