Human Capital Strategy

R3’s human capital consultants help agencies make data-driven, defensible plans for their human capital programs. Our consultants gather organizational data via interviews, focus groups, customized surveys, benchmarking, and downloads from enterprise systems, and use qualitative and quantitative techniques to identify strengths, vulnerabilities, and inconsistencies that may be hindering an organization’s ability to maximize talent and fully achieve mission results.

Specific solutions we provide include:

  • Workforce Analysis and Planning
