A major online news and social media company is always looking for ways to improve. In 2009 they wanted to kick employee skills up a notch, clarify roles and streamline operations.

Leadership asked Emerson to focus on their key departments: Product Development/Marketing, Product Engineering and Finance.

Together, we built functional, professional and industry capability models, defining specific competencies – over 200 in all. We re-designed roles, built targeted assessments, and determined learning strategies to help people develop their skills and reach the new standards.

The company rolled out the program to its entire global organization.
