Building Competencies

In today’s increasingly competitive and challenging marketplaces the importance of building and maintaining a competitive advantage through highly engaged and competent staff has never been more critical. 

69% of managers are uncomfortable communicating with employees
50% of employees quit their boss, not their Job
58% of managers say they didn’t receive any management training

Common Problems

Today’s organisations, regardless of industry sector, face enormous challenges:

  • Skilled talent is at a premium, while retaining top talent continues to be a losing game for most.
  • Organisations are struggling to understand the complexities of five-generation workforces and the nuances and expectations of each generation.
  • Clients are more demanding than ever and less tolerant of organisations that don’t strive to consistently exceed their expectations
  • Competition is fierce and it is easier than ever for customers to find a product or service from somewhere else as a result of improved technology and the proliferation of digital media

It is therefore imperative for ambitious businesses to focus on building competency within their organisation in order to continue to thrive.

A central element to building competencies in an organisation is learning and development that yields a highly capable and agile workforce that can flex with changing business goals. Without this in place businesses and the leaders within them struggle to:

  • Align people and skills with organisational business goals
  • Drive experience-building opportunities
  • Recruit and retain the best talent
  • Comply with health and safety as well as quality standards
  • Deliver organisational efficiency and productivity metrics
  • Achieve their growth targets and consequently the business’ potential.

Tool Kit

At Chalkhill Blue, we understand the importance of building competency within the organisations we work with as a way of helping them unlock their potential.  To help identify areas of focus, we use a number of specific tools and techniques including an Organisational Competency Gap Analysis, Competency Framework Analysis and a process called “Setting the Bar” alongside implementing a structured Performance Development Process and comprehensive learning and development programme, both of which are monitored on a quarterly basis.
