The model in detail
The Human Capital Self-Assessment© is a comprehensive screening tool that intelligently audits and maps the different dimensions in a company and then provides concrete recommendations that help you to target your human management.
The analysis provides you with answers to the following questions:
- Is our Human Capital Management well-positioned to face the future?
- What are the biggest risks hiding in our human resource policies and practices?
- What balance are we currently striking between creativity/innovation/invention, and standards/monitoring/supervision?
- How much transparency do we really have in our company?
The ratings are provided along five recognized levels of development:
The Maturity Model underlying this analysis
Levels 1-3 build on each other and are important to support consistent quality in human and talent management. Levels 4 and 5 build further on that basis and show a high degree of sophistication and effort. Should you receive a lower than expected maturity level in some areas despite having sophisticated systems, it may be that the processes or transparency necessary for sustainability are not sufficiently demonstrated.
Filling out our questionnaire takes about 45 minutes of your time. Within 3 business days you will receive a summary of your current status, a maturity rating and the top recommendations for you to achieve a quantum leap forward. This maturity rating will allow you to benchmark your performance against your own expectations and other organizations on the market.
On request, we can also offer you a short, targeted workshop with your top management to evaluate the analysis and its results and discuss how to proceed.
Alternatively, we can train your designated staff to run as often as needed, manage and interpret the assessment themselves. They can then use it to recognize key drivers, perform relevant actions and support sustainable change. You also benefit from accredited specialists who guide, support and accompany you and your change process on request.
Here is an example of one form of the rating:
You can access your assessment in three different versions, depending on your needs:
- Overview Assessment – a snapshot of your company/organization
- CEO Analysis – including a breakdown of the individual areas and more graphics
- HR Report – in-depth analysis of main issues with individual recommendations in 25 key areas.
The contents of each are presented in the table below:
|Element / Rating||Overview |
|Overall rating for the organization||√||√||√|
|Average overall score for other |
|Main strengths and risks||√||√||√|
|What this means for your business||√||√|
|Quality of substructures||√|
|Spiderweb and ratings for 5 main|
|Strengths and opportunities |
for 25 areas
As opposed to some ‘free’ surveys which are offered to tailor consulting or other services to specific results, the self-assessment is independent and a stand-alone product intended to deliver value in and of itself.
