Imperial Oil Limited's Capability Development Program: Developing All Employees' Skills for Competitive Advantage (1999)

Imperial Oil Limited is helping employees develop their generic employability skills by providing them with timely education and training, challenging work experiences, coaching and counselling, and opportunities for independent study.

Imperial’s capability development system identifies the skills employees need to do their jobs; assesses employees’ current levels of proficiency in each of these skills; provides opportunities for workers to close gaps in skills and knowledge; and helps build a culture of lifelong learning.

Imperial Oil developed a seven-step process for managers and employees to follow as they develop and follow through on individual skill building plans. This annual process involves a cycle of needs assessment, planning, doing, and measuring results.

As well, a senior management committee responsible for human resources matters conducts an annual review of the effectiveness of the company’s capability development process, and reviews Imperial Oil’s core competency framework and core curriculum to ensure that they are current.
