Diagnostic Tools

As part of our Human Resources program audit review, we identify areas for embedding a corporate citizenship ethos at the policy/procedure level as well as identify opportunities for cross-sector partnership development throughout the talent management process. These efforts support a workforce culture which recognizes broader stakeholder considerations as part business activities.

How effective are your organization’s:

  • Recruitment programs at promoting the range of corporate citizenship involvement and their benefits to employees?

  • Skills Development programs at integrating talent development and community partnership needs?

  • Performance and Rewards programs at integrating community engagement objectives and scorecard measures at the Leadership level?

As part of our skills-based volunteer program design, we use our client’s taxonomy for job expectations, generally defined through their competency database or job evaluation systems, to develop a customized inventory of local non-profit talent management needs.

We also support a high level of employee involvement in the program design phase, through various data collection tools (e.g. focus groups, surveys), to ensure the best fit when mapping non-profit needs and talent development requirements.  Consider the cost-savings to your employee learning and development budget which can be achieved through this skills-based volunteer program approach as well as the opportunity to strengthen your corporate citizenship brand!
