Work is what we know. Community™ is an integrated talent management approach that enables organizations to achieve their mission.

HR in many organizations is now a respected partner to business leaders, and increasingly are being asked to provide strategic insights about the overall people management for the organization. Through Community™, our clients have access to an integrated solution that aligns both structure and capacity using one simple approach. It closes the gap that many systems have failed to address, bridging the hard side with the soft side of human resources.
We built the Community™ platform to support all aspects of human resources management using clear job definitions as the start. By using three factors present in all work—Purpose, Engagement, and Delivery—across our four solution quadrants, the Community™ platform easily supports a full range of human resources activities, from job design and evaluation, labor market intelligence and compensation design, measuring growth in skills and knowledge, and rewarding achievement, using a simple, holistic framework that brings accessible, clear, and powerful talent management solutions to any organization.
