In this episode, Senior Consultant Chris Burbidge has a conversation with Andrew about the question he hears from clients week in, week out.

Chris began his career on the tools, as a tradesperson. He worked his way up to senior leadership roles in the oil and gas and resource sectors before joining TDG as a Senior Consultant.  

As a leader on many of TDG’s projects, the common question or challenge he hears from clients is: 

How do I get value out of my people? 

How do I get value out of what I invest in their training and competency?

We talk about:

  • The factors that impact the cost of investment, and the value we get in return, with training and competency.
  • What Chris typically sees in organisations when looking at their team capabilities and employee competency.
  • Why a skills analysis is the foundation of understanding the skills you need, the people you have – and the training required to succeed at their jobs.
  • Why validating the currency of employee competency matters.
  • How a documented skills analysis significantly reduces compliance stress and risk.
