Welcome to episode 11 of Radio Omnicor – our podcast about the science of business!

Cathy Farlam Ashton is in studio with Colleen McLintock to give you a behind-the-scenes look at competencies.

We use them daily across the HR value chain and they are to a large extent the way our products intersect with our clients. But where will they go in the next 5 years, and how did competencies get so widely adopted?

The best qualified person we can think of to help unpack this is Cathy, one of the founding partners of Omnicor and current partner at Multiplex. Cathy is well known in the industry for being a treasure trove of insight and knowledge across many HR disciplines, all gained through working at the rock face for more than 20 years.

Her approach is insightful and based on very real work experience – and she really is a wizard when it comes to writing job profiles!
