Bloomington, MN (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
Talent has become the competitive advantage in today’s challenging business environment. To help clients address this, CPI Twin Cities and Corporate Psychologists, LLC have formed a strategic alliance to better serve clients’ needs.
CPI Twin Cities has worked in collaboration with Corporate Psychologists on various talent management projects for several years. Now, the firms are co-located at CPI Twin Cities’ offices in Bloomington, MN and are engaged in a strategic alliance for the benefit of individual and shared clients.
Patricia Berg, CEO of CPI Twin Cities, explains that “our two companies have known each other for a long time and we have intentionally moved slowly to get to this alliance. It is built on a solid foundation of trust, shared values and a business model that focuses on outcome based work. We can now respond to client’s needs with a broader array of talent management resources based on best practices in talent management and drive toward outcomes that enhance organizational effectiveness and results.”
Dr. Steven W. Salmi, President and CEO of Corporate Psychologists, adds that “CEO’s and senior leaders feel pressure to create results in areas they might not know much about, such as talent management. Leaders might be unclear about the leadership capabilities their companies need for future success, they may be feeling pressure from their respective boards, or may clearly see that the talent pool is directly tied to their company’s growth, but are unsure about how to move forward. At Corporate Psychologists, we provide business relevant data points to reduce the risk associated with making high stakes hiring and promotion decisions and follow up with fully tailored development planning and implementation. Successful companies of the future understand that talent management must be seen as a core business practice versus an elective program or initiative.”
Together CPI Twin Cities and Corporate Psychologists, LLC offer a full suite of talent management solutions. Through this strategic alliance, the two companies have expanded capabilities to Assess, Develop, Engage and Transition talent to support the career lifecycle.
Recently, CPI Twin Cities and Corporate Psychologists, LLC engaged with a leading manufacturer in the Midwest who shared its concerns around bench strength and succession planning. The bottom line question for the company was whether they had the right talent to drive future business results.
Previous efforts to address these issues were shelved during the recent recession. Now the issues were back, front and center. As a leader in their industry for decades, senior executives knew strategy shifts would affect the selection and development of current and future leaders with continued growth occurring incrementally through expansion in new markets. A major question this company was facing was “Would they have the ability to compete in existing and new markets with their current bench?”
The company selected to work with CPI Twin Cities and Corporate Psychologists, LLC because the strategic alliance offers custom solutions, responsive service, alignment with internal processes and procedures, and global capabilities.
The Midwest manufacturer has taken advantage of selection assessments, leadership assessments, development, coaching and custom training solutions for leaders and managers. The alliance between CPI Twin Cities and Corporate Psychologists, LLC is helping the client’s leaders successfully transition to positions of greater responsibility while ensuring that bench strength is being developed.
