Applying Skills and Competencies to Performance Management & Career Development – with Sarah Blackmore

In this episode, Dan van der Werf interviews Sarah Blackmore about applying skills and competencies to performance management and career development.

Sarah has been working in the People & Culture space for over 15 years with the last 7 of those years specifically focusing on scaling tech start-ups and she is currently the VP, People & Leadership Operations for Riipen. Sarah deliberately leads not with the nomenclature that Humans are a Resource to be used, but that Humans are the biggest singular cost investment for every company in the world and they should be treated as such: an investment that makes or breaks a business. This approach means adopting a human-first approach to every business process and appreciating every nuance of an employee journey that touches every aspect of your customer journey.
