When tough times hit in March, 2020, we made a major shift in the way that we deliver our expert knowledge to the world. 

For the first time in our history, HRSG launched online competency-based management training, and the feedback so far has been awesome.

And now in 2021, we've taken it a step further by launching Competency Academy. The academy is built with the mission to give every HR professional access to our 30+ years of competency experience, so that they can take that knowledge and use it to make their organization better.

We thought we'd share some of the feedback on the courses that we've run so far. Here's what the participants have told us.


  1. These competency based management training classes go way beyond a ‘webinar’.

Okay, maybe you’ve got a bit of webinar fatigue. Can't blame you. But these classes go way more in-depth than a typical webinar.

These sessions include live Q & A’s (like, you can literally ask a question, with your voice. In fact, it’s highly encouraged.)

There are quick assignments handed out to help you fully absorb the knowledge being delivered – because listening is good, but doing is better.

We’ve even had past HRSG clients join us to share their insights from the real-world competency projects they’ve worked on.

Here’s what Amy, the Director of Organizational L&D at Bluebeam Inc., said recently about our Advanced CBM program:

“This was a very useful deep dive into how to design a competency-based talent management initiative. I feel much more equipped to design a business case and develop a framework for the doing the work. I trusted the expertise of HRSG, who have done this kind of work for decades.


  1. Participants love the unique access to our experts.

Our talent solutions delivery team at HRSG is as busy as ever, working with organizations to deliver competency-based talent initiatives.

But we’ve been insisting that they carve out some time for these training sessions.

And so our online CBM training courses give you a unique opportunity to learn directly from them, and dip a toe into the waters of competencies without a consulting engagement. How often to you get the chance to pick the brain of the world’s foremost experts in any discipline?

If you have any interest in utilizing competencies, whether now or in the future, the expert access you get in our online CBM certification courses is a terrific way to start your journey.

Here’s what David, a talent specialist at Humber College, said about our instructors.

“The presenters of this program are engaging, knowledgeable, and excellent trainers.”



  1. Participants like to learn at a comfortable time, from a comfortable location.

Our aim with our online CBM courses is to deliver the value you’d expect from an in-person seminar, online. With no drop off in quality or comprehension.

That being said, delivering online does provide some unique advantages. For example, we offer similar courses tailored to different time zones – currently for North America and the Middle East region, with further offerings potentially to follow.

Our sessions are designed to be attended live, but if you end up having a conflict, you can always catch up – all of the sessions are recorded and delivered to your inbox within 24 hours, guaranteed.


  1. Participants like the value-added bonuses that registration provides.

When you register for our CBM classes, we like to add on as much value as we can. So, in addition to the 6 to 8 hours of training from our top competency experts, here’s what you can expect as part of your registration.

  1. Those who register understand that talent management skills + knowledge are more important than ever before.

In uncertain times, there’s no such thing as being over-prepared.

And we truly believe that if you’re ready to invest in yourself as a talent management professional, there’s no better time to do it than now.

Those with the most detailed skills and knowledge will be the ones that organizations rely on to help lead their organizations out the other side of this turbulent year. And competency based management can help provide the framework + foundation for a more stable future for your organization and its employees.

Here’s what Lama, the co-founder and managing partner of Meras Consulting, said about our CBM courses.

This course was very well structured and easy to follow. I got a good understanding of what Competency Based Management is, the benefits of implementing it and how it can be utilized in various areas. The instructors were very clear and engaging. The organizers did an excellent job of support. I would recommend this course for both HR and non-HR personnel.” 

Jump on board with a top talent management trend for 2021.
