Large E&P Company Using IHRDC’s Library to Build a Competency Framework
A large exploration and production company with operations in North America and Africa was growing rapidly, adding hundreds of employees a year. They needed to develop a structured training program to establish globally consistent job requirements tied to the overall corporate strategy. Having already licensed and deployed a Learning Management System (LMS) with competency assessment capability, the company decided to license IHRDC's established Competency Library to build a standard foundation. After loading the IHRDC Competency Library into the client’s LMS, IHRDC helped it create customized competency models and match them with the appropriate training resources. By using IHRDC’s Competency Library to populate an existing system and linking these competencies to training, the company was able to save costs in training, staffing, and IT support.
