Services and Metrics for Human Resources.
When it comes to helping Human Resources departments become invaluable strategic partners within their companies, Shaker Consulting Group is bar none. In addition to offering Virtual Job Tryout, the industry leading custom simulation for pre-employment testing, we're here to help HR professionals like you with the following:
Raising HR in the enterprise.
The role of the Human Resources department within the corporate enterprise needs to evolve and grow. Many of the high cost/low value activities traditionally under HR are being automated or outsourced.
This opens the opportunity for HR to achieve its true mission to the corporation: adding value by having people in place who are aligned with the company's culture and corporate goals. Everything else is just window dressing, by comparison.
The analytical tools and scientific methodology available to you from Shaker Consulting Group will enable you to measure performance characteristics that matter to your company's strategy. You will help identify skill sets and cultural needs within the organization. And you will be able to document the success of training or other interventions to demonstrate how you are achieving real quantifiable results.
Going beyond training.
Training is a cornerstone of HR activities. It's time to build upon it.
What process have you built to ensure the people you hire have the best likelihood of being successful?
What are you doing to help acquire more top-notch talent?
Do the criteria used to promote people take into account past performance as well as future potential?
How prepared is your organization to backfill key positions? Are you equipped to promote from within?
Shaker Consulting Group's assessment tools and human resources metrics put you in position to identify characteristics and skills that matter to your company's success. With this insight, training becomes targeted. The right people are put into the right positions to succeed.
Building a company culture that impacts performance.
What is the culture of your company? Is it consultative? Is it sales-oriented? Is it technology-driven?
Your company culture is derived from its business strategy. As Human Resources Professionals, your job is recognizing your company's culture, analyzing the ways culture impacts people performance, and using tools that align performance with your company's goals.
It is Shaker Consulting Group’s mission to establish, clarify and articulate these links. Understanding how your people contribute to results is a business imperative that offers you tremendous competitive advantage.
Aligning your people with your corporate goals.
Targeted investment in your people holds the potential to improve your business more than any other asset. Shaker Consulting Group identifies the target and shows you how to understand the true impact your people have on your results.
Specific analyses include:
- Isolating the applicant competencies that are most related to success on the job
- Examining which executive competencies lead to corporate level success
- Assessing the impact of corporate culture on business results
- Identifying the specific customer service behaviors that actually lead to customer retention and sales
- Modeling the impact of brand behaviors on results
Gaining a new perspective on performance.
Most companies don’t document the links between competencies and results.
With Performance Modeling, we establish these links and then test them by collecting and analyzing data. We give you a new perspective: the impact of human intangibles on business results.
Once the Performance Model is created, all competency-based solutions become obvious in their impact on the business results. And, we strive to empirically verify the impact whenever possible.
