HRSG Brings Competency-based Talent Management Mainstream with CompetencyCore

HR Tech Chicago / October 8, 2012 – Canadian competency-based talent management specialist Human Resources Systems Group Ltd (HRSG) today announced CompetencyCoreTM, its unique, full-spectrum approach to competency management.

CompetencyCoreTM is designed to demystify competency-based talent management and make it easy for organizations to implement it broadly on their own. It includes:

CompetencyCoreTM 5.0, a software platform for building and managing competencies and for deploying competencies in recruiting, performance management, career development and other HR applications;
CompetencyCoreTM Library of over 450 behaviorally observable organizational and technical competencies, including a specialized Oil and Gas library;
CompetencyCoreTM Certify, a comprehensive training program to successfully deploy competency-based management as a centralized HR approach; and
CompetencyCoreTM Engage, consulting services offered by HRSG-trained professionals.

All elements are based around a central competency-based management methodology developed in over 25 years of real-world experience developing behaviorally observable competency for industry and government.

“Today’s competitive battleground is talent, but the shortcoming of today’s talent management solutions – despite vendors’ claims of 360 degree views- is that implementations are siloed, limiting impact to HR applications, and not strategic management decision-making,” says HRSG founder and chief executive officer, Dr. Suzanne Simpson, PhD Industrial Organizational Psychology. “CompetencyCoreTM will change that equation by making competencies easy to adopt across an organization so they can provide a lingua franca that integrates talent management and allows it to move from tactical problem-solving to becoming a strategic management tool.”

For more information on CompetencyCoreTM, visit or meet with HRSG founder Suzanne Simpson at HR Tech conference October 8 and 9 in Chicago. To set up a meeting or interview with Dr. Simpson, please contact Sarah Beckett at, 613-745-6605 x224.
