Client Testimonials

“Workitect’s competency modeling process gave us a solid foundation to select and develop high performing branch managers and customer service reps. Their consultants worked well with all levels - from executive to front-line employees. They were professional, easy to work with, and good at sharing their expertise and organizational insight with us.” Director, Organizational Learning, Manufacturing Company

“Workitect taught us how to build effective competency models. More importantly, they shared with us ways to use the models. We established hiring and selection criteria, created effective training and development courses, and developed unique incentive reward programs. If you want to learn to internalize the processes of competency modeling, you can’t pick a better organization to show you how.” Corporate Manager, Human Resource Development, Telecommunications Company
