Caveo Learning announces that four of its consultants have earned Talent Development Reporting principles (TDRp) consultant certification from the nonprofit Center for Talent Reporting.
TDRp is an industry-led initiative to bring standards and business discipline to the HR and learning functions, in an effort to align talent development initiatives to organizational objectives and deliver greater value. TDRp provides industry standard measures and reports that enable upfront planning, backend performance measurement, and continuous improvement.
In granting TDRp certification to four Caveo consultants, the Center for Talent Reporting affirms their ability to deliver high-quality talent metrics and measurement strategy, and to implement services consistent with talent development reporting best practices. While the nonprofit industry organization has previously certified internal practitioners, this is the first time that consultants have been certified to implement TDRp with third-party companies.
Caveo CEO Jeff Carpenter, President Gary Schafer, Strategic Learning Partner Alwyn Klein, and Learning Project Manager Keri Meeker have each earned consultant certification.
“TDRp certification is a very rigorous process, and achievement of certification is a significant accomplishment,” says David Vance, executive director of the Center for Talent Reporting. “Caveo is the first consultancy firm to earn certification for its consultants by implementing TDRp in a client organization, which reflects its commitment to building maturity in TDRp processes with its clients.”
By implementing TDRp methodologies, Caveo consultants are able to help clients articulate the business value of learning & development and other human capital domains by attaching measurable key performance indicators and metrics from start to finish, aligning those efforts with organizational priorities and budgets in a clear way.
“Caveo’s mission has always been to deliver learning solutions from a business perspective and to elevate the learning function to be a valued core component of an organization’s strategic planning team,” says Carpenter, who founded Caveo in 2004. “That business-centered approach is Caveo’s key differentiator, and it’s now profoundly accentuated by TDRp certification. There are other learning consultancies out there, but Caveo is the only one helping learning leaders deliver real, provable business value to their organizations.”
Carpenter and Klein are scheduled speakers at the upcoming 2016 CTR Annual Conference, February 22–26 in Dallas. Carpenter will co-present with Vance, "Running L&D and HR Like a Business to Deliver Measurable Results." Meanwhile, Klein will appear on a panel titled "Implementation Tips and Techniques—Stories from the Front Lines," hosted by CTR Assistant Director Peggy Parskey.
