Competency Management Solutions

Be confident your workforce has the competencies to perform

A Competency Management System (CMS) provides a framework for assuring the right people are in the right jobs. In today’s challenging market, it is even more critical to have clear insight into the status of competency across the organization to manage risk and sustain performance. From operations and maintenance, to engineering and supervision, a CMS will provide that visibility and more.

Why Competency Management?

  • Regulatory Scrutiny – pending regulations will add requirements to verify worker competency for midstream and downstream facilities
  • Workforce Dynamics – staff reductions, retirement and a variable skill mix complicate staffing and transfers
  • Market Volatility – oil price pressures drive more frequent changes in budgets and production levels

Benefits of a CMS

  • Reduced risk
  • Verified regulatory compliance
  • Improved operations
  • Simplified recruiting
  • Defined job progression
  • Improved management visibility into resource needs
  • Streamlined resource assignment
  • Increased program validity – standardized assessment criteria
