A Big 5 professional services firm asked Emerson to help develop the HC Business Advisory Program for Senior Consultants, a milestone-based learning program. It was designed to accelerate the transition of newly hired and promoted Human Capital Senior Consultants into their advisory role: diagnosing, articulating, and solving for client problems.
The inaugural program was built around realistic, on-the-job simulations and included participation of company leaders.
Since then, we have worked with the HC learning team to refresh the program based on feedback and develop it into a larger “end-to-end” experience for Senior Consultants; this goes beyond classroom-based learning to applied learning, support networks, etc. for the expected competencies at the SC level.
