Role Details

Building Business Relationships

Being an effective thought partner and subject matter expert on talent solutions is priority number one for Performance Advisors – however, effectiveness in this capacity is only possible through quality relationships with the PA’s client groups, Learning + Development and other Human Resources functions. In order to achieve these relationships, it requires analysis and evaluation of client needs and data, an understanding of business priorities and organizational dynamics, a proactive approach that looks both near-term and long-term on behalf of the client, and consistent delivery over and above client expectations. Performance Advisors are also expected to work across and lead through influence across a wide range of stakeholders and cross-functional work teams in order to achieve results. The Senior Manager partners with the Senior Director PA on key stakeholder interactions and leadership presentations. 

Managing Portfolios & Priorities

On behalf of the Performance Advisor’s client groups, the Senior Manager partners with stakeholders and colleagues across the Talent Development team and other parts of HR to define strategies, develop project plans, and support the creation of business cases for investment in learning and talent development solutions. This also means proactively evaluating and evolving talent development roadmaps in consultation with the Senior Director. The Performance Advisor will also plan to ensure we continually prioritize the most critical business performance needs, and that existing solutions meet those needs. Portfolio management also entails consultation on business and discipline initiatives to connect initiatives in other parts of the organization with similar goals, and alignment with other talent and technology roadmaps.

Project Management

On a day-to-day basis, the Senior Manager serves as a key point of contact for their assigned projects and client relationships with responsibility and accountability for managing the end-to-end processes in support of developing learning and talent development programs and solutions. This includes project scoping and partnering with supporting teams for the design, development, delivery, measurement and sustainment of solutions. Through project management, Performance Advisors have the opportunity to infuse innovation and creativity into the solutions being crafted and ensure the best possible solutions are brought to life.
