Helping organisations realise their goals through people is the foundation for much of our work at OIM.
Previously employers tended to hire on skill & knowledge, only to fire based on poor attitudes and lack of performance. Some organisations and industries still follow this pattern and are usually characterised by high staff turnover.
Conversely, effective organisations seek to deliver their business goals through a highly engaged workforce that possesses both the attitudes and behaviours to drive the greatest competitive value. In our experience of working with such organisations they understand the importance of hiring and further developing people with the right “fit”. They appreciate that when they do so, they can benefit from performance improvements of at least 40%.

Often our work commences by ensuring the organisation is clear about the type of talent they require, by mapping out the skills, knowledge, behaviours, attitudes and motivations necessary for success. This ‘map’ may be referred to as the core competencies or capabilities. Through the employment of occupational psychology techniques and assessment tools, we help to measure people against your ‘talent map’ and align them to core business drivers. Our services can be utilised at an individual, team or organisational level.
