People development

Model of organisational values

Organizational values interconnect different employees and help strengthen their affiliation with the company.

But it is not just enough to simply define values – it is of key importance that employees pursue them on a daily basis when performing their job tasks.

Thus, jointly with the company, we design /review the model of organizational values and adjust it to the company’s vision and mission. Together with the company’s management and expert staff attending the workshop, we review key values and determine behaviour reflecting these at work through employee behaviour. The workshop aims at defining tailor-made behaviour in the light of the company’s needs.

Competence models

The competence model serves as a platform for 360 competence assessment. 

The elaboration of the competence model adapted to specific needs and work performed by the company contributes to the systematic and efficient conduct with employees – ranging from the selection of appropriate candidates, competence measurement and the systematic development of employees. The competence model is elaborated during at least two 8-hour workshops at which the management and expert staff help determine important success factors and key competencies for individual posts. Descriptions and behaviour are defined for all sets of competencies in order to facilitate employees to pursue these competencies in practice.

 

Individual coaching

Individual coaching aims at developing the individual’s personal and professional potentials for the purpose of participants developing their top condition and skills so as to achieve objectives and improve their competence levels. It proceeds in person, one-to-one (i.e. the coach and participants), with the number of meetings being determined in accordance with the agreement with the client.

 

Training for internal coaches

The target group of training for internal coaches are the employees showing the desire and also potentials on the basis of which they could develop competencies that are relevant for the provision of high-quality coaching. Prior to the training, we devise the profile of an internal coach together with the company where according to the company’s needs the key potentials and competencies are defined.

 

 

HR Hackathon

Competo HR hackathon  is a whole day innovation event. It could either mark the first step towards the innovation of HR practices and processes, or could serve as “a breath of fresh air” and the source of new ideas for existing innovative HR projects. An HR hackathon is a method for the innovation of HR practices and processes by bringing together talents from different companies, different generations, and with different skills and experience. The purpose of a whole day and intense Competo HR hackathon is to find as many innovative solutions for HR challenges companies will face in the future.

Team building

Every team and every company differs in terms of their employees and how they interact as a team. For this purpose, clients are not provided with a pre-arranged team building, but we rather adapt its implementation and contents to the client’s wishes and needs. Each team building we prepare is unique and consists of personalised tasks for the company/team in question.

 

Training: behavioural interview

How can we truly assess the level of actual competencies of a candidate applying for a vacancy? By putting behavioural-focused questions asking the candidate how he/she behaved in different situations from short-term past.

Organisational climate measurement

Organizational climate of the company to a large extent reflects the level of satisfaction among employees with different aspects of the working environment. Satisfied employees also work more efficiently, they are innovative and make a major contribution to the company’s success.

 

Introduction of HR processes

Every company can have an efficiently drawn up HR strategy enabling the recruitment of good candidates, the systematic development of employees and the regulated process of departure from the company. When the strategy is being elaborated, we advise, help define individual steps and plan key activities in the framework of all three processes and adapt them to your company’s needs and objectives.

Psychological assessment

Finding the right candidate to fill a specific position is highly important for the company. The application of psychological assessments helps optimise the quality of the selection process. The tests enable us to describe the candidate’s characteristics, regardless of their qualifications and experience, in a standardised and objective manner. In practice, psychological assessments are used as a means of predicting people’s behaviour. They are highly reliable and effective, because they comply with the following premises:

  1. Adults display traits that remain relatively stable over time.
  2. Personal traits differ between adults, affecting one’s conduct in the workplace.
  3. Different occupations demand different personal traits.
  4. Personal traits can be measured.

Assesment centre

Because the chosen candidate will help shape the future of the entire company, the selection process for head positions should receive your undivided attention. The individual selection assessment centre provides first-rate methods to ensure the best candidate is chosen. What makes this procedure highly reliable is the integration of various selection approaches (e.g. interviews, role play) and objective evaluations by independent observers. Our evaluation of the candidate’s performance at an interview can often be biased, as the candidate can impress us with their preparation or our appraisal is skewed by errors such as the halo effect.

Development centre

Although business mandates a good knowledge of the market, the competition, and the needs of clients, it is far more pivotal to have an intimate knowledge of self. Our individual development centre employs methods that enable an efficient and objective analysis of the employees’ competencies and capability. The findings form a solid bedrock for future growth with projects like talent management, succession systems, change management, etc. A development centre that is properly constructed can predict an individual’s behaviour in pre-structured situations in a systematic and objective manner.

Competency-based interview

When choosing candidates, bias can often creep in without us noticing. An elaborate structure of the selection interview prevents us from making errors in appraisal. A competency-based interview is an approach that guarantees objectivity and reliability during the selection process. It focuses on the individual’s past behaviour, which is the best-known predictor of future behaviour.

We tend to form an opinion about a candidate the moment they first walk in the door. This first impression persists throughout the interview, leaving an important mark that may affect our decision about the candidate’s suitability. What is more concerning is that we are rarely aware of the bias present in such situations.

Team onboarding

Finding the right person to take up the post is only the first step to success. The first 90 days are key in determining whether the new employee will acclimate smoothly to a work environment with its own dynamics and procedures. Team onboarding helps the new member and the rest of the team to cultivate a fruitful collaboration. One of the many advantages of a well-structured onboarding programme is that it integrates the employee into a new workplace in a cost-efficient way.

Team development

Teamwork is an important ingredient of modern day employment. Research suggests that the time devoted to teamwork has increased by 50 percent in the last two decades. Companies need to adapt to these trends and learn how to collaborate efficiently in order to succeed in a complex global market.

A number of studies have identified the advantages of teamwork development at the workplace. Among these are:

  • Quick identification of errors: when working as a team, employees notice mistakes faster and find better solutions.
  • Excellent outcomes: teamwork produces better outcomes, while employees report higher levels of job satisfaction.
  • High profitability: close collaboration between employees helps drive a company’s profitability.

Outplacement / career programmes

Competo believes that taking care of employees during all stages of their employment, even at the time of redundancy, is what makes a company successful. Outplacement is a support service that a company offers to its employees, when they are made redundant for a variety of reasons. By organising group or individual career workshops, the company actively supports the departing employees to find new job opportunities.

When the only constant in life is change, it is essential that a company is adaptable when managing its workforce. The way in which the company handles changes and staffing reorganisation significantly affects their reputation in the eyes of the staying employees and future candidates on the employment market.
