HCG will provide courses that highlight the best up-to-date and most relevant training courses essential to all professionals and companies to meet expected goals and outcomes.
A statement released by the companies explained that “as part of efforts to transform HR practice in Nigeria, Phillips Consulting is glad to announce a new partnership with HCG, a US-based talent management giant. Using science, analytics and empathy, HCG will complement Phillips Consulting’s effort to drive growth and excellence in Nigerian organisations. The partnership will provide evidence-based HR and talent management certifications to the Nigerian market”.
The statement also pointed out that the partnership will ensure that existing and aspiring HR professionals have the opportunity to nurture skills and pursue certifications in focus areas such as workforce analytics, change management, leadership development, and integrated talent management amongst others.
The statement noted that “what differentiates HCG certifications from current certifications available in the Nigerian market is that they are hands-on, project-based and backed by deep industry and academic expertise. Rather than focus solely on the administrative and legal aspects of HR practice, these certifications will equip HR professionals with the tools, resources and expertise to make instant and tangible business impact”.
Senior Partner in charge of Phillips Consulting People Transformation practice, Paul Ayim, who commented on the development said “it is time, for HR to raise the bar beyond HR operations and change the conversation to more strategic business-aligned issues that impact business performance”.
HCG’s founder and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Shreya Sarkar-Barney also said “human resource and talent management professionals are increasingly called upon to align the workforce with the business needs and deliver measurable improvements. Our science-based courses and certifications can be readily put to use to deliver results”.
