Sense into people processes

Instead of spending time and money on passing fads and single cures, organizations should in the age of digitalization build sustainable and integrated people processes. Basic competencies serve as agile building blocks for all work, workers and work groups. Make them the core of your HRD processes using tools that speak the same language, toward a common goal.

In our cloud-based and multilingual HRD toolset, WOPI measures competence drivers, WOPI360 measures competent action and WOPI-C measures competence culture in the organization - the backbone of talent management enabling sophisticated HR analytics.

Basic competencies

The goal of WOPI tools is to foster 14 Basic competencies, good ways of doing things in different jobs. Every job can be profiled by its desired Basic competencies. People can be matched to jobs with corresponding competency drivers. What is your job's desired competency profile - and your own match to it?
