Enablement and Academy

Strategic Competence Management

Qualified employees determine the success of companies. This fact is reinforced by advancing demographic change, the growing shortage of skilled workers and required competencies that are constantly changing. With the increasing importance of qualified employees, the requirements for targeted employee development are also growing. Above all, this relates to the enablement process, training concepts, learning formats and content.

To meet this increasing complexity, we provide you with a holistic enablement concept. In detail, the structured Academy approach from UNITY is divided into the following three steps:

Analyze and understand

Create an understanding of the challenges of the future. UNITY analyzes current and future tasks and derives the necessary competencies.

Create awareness and motivate

Make employees aware of the need for change. Motivate personal development through the pursuit of common goals..

Enable and support

Enable employees to successfully meet the challenges of digital transformation. Provide support in the successful implementation in daily work.

Our Academy approach combines the needs of your employees with corporate goals. It is implemented through continuous learner journeys and it is integrated into the everyday lives of your employees using multimedia – from top management and middle management to operational and administrative staff.

This allows you to target and proactively manage the strategic development of competencies in your company. You can decide at which point in the approach you want to get started with us.

The overarching strategic competence management that is established is the link between business and HR development. Benefit from our experience in developing holistic enablement programs in combination with our in-depth industry understanding. Together with you, we develop the capabilities in your company according to your needs. This results in positive effects on your value creation and ensures that it is sustainably secured.
