About Us

Who We Are:

Shea Capability & Compliance Solutions (Shea CCS) was created to pay it forward for our next generation workforce. With the current retiring boomer workforce exiting the workplace, our next generation has very few individuals left to show them how to do this new job they just stepped into, in a safe and reliable way.

In America, we have been able to “train” the next generation worker due to the large capacity of skilled workers over the last 150 years, but as important as training is to our next generation, training alone no longer works. As a consultancy firm, we’re helping clients build competency frameworks that connect job and training requirements to the capability needed in the workplace. Blending training, competency, and assessment expertise with cultural and organizational change, Shea CCS can help integrate continuity and reliability into training programs to reduce risk and improve safety performance while complying with applicable domestic and international standards and regulations.

Our Consultants collaborate with client leadership teams and technical experts to define competencies and assessment standards and design systems that support individual capability and skills progression from initial hiring through retirement. We can also work within your team to deliver the training and coaching needed to successfully implement and maintain these systems and processes.
