Competencies are knowledge, skills, traits, values, and/or behaviors which result in effective or superior performance. Types of competencies include core (e.g., customer focus), cross-functional (e.g., problem solving) and technical (e.g., IT strategy). Competency libraries are groups of related competencies.

Competencies can also have rating scales (e.g., beginner, advanced, expert), creating clear expectations at each level for a given position and reducing hiring and assessment errors by establishing clear definition of what is expected at each competency scale.

Use of competencies & competencies libraries delivers the following benefits:

 

Faster, Better, Cheaper Talent Management

Many organizations spend a lot of time and money creating and re-creating job descriptions, interview guide questions, performance review standards, etc. By defining clear competencies, organizations can quickly derive interview guides, competency assessments and other talent management materials with little effort.

 

 

Effective Talent Acquisition

Many recruiters lack clear insight into the competency needs of the organization, and transparency into the ROI of recruiting spend. By leveraging competencies as the glue between talent management processes, recruiters can gain insight into competency needs and hiring effectiveness from employee development and performance management.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Relevant & Engaging Talent Development

Many organizations lack a clear understanding of employee development and succession needs, and transparency into the ROI of development efforts. By leveraging competencies as the glue between talent management processes, development professions can gather employee development needs from hiring and performance management, and effectively measure the impact of development efforts as part of the performance management process.

 

 

Accurate & Rewarding Talent Performance

Performance professionals often lack a clear understanding of employee performance, and employee desire to be rewarded for performance is often not fulfilled. By leveraging competencies as the glue between talent management processes, performance management and total rewards professionals can integrate with employee development to measure and reward employee progression and performance.

 

 

 

 

Rich Talent Management Data & Analytics

Many organizations lack the data to assess a complete "talent lifecycle" snapshot. A competency-based approach generates an framework and the data necessary to analyze talent acquisition, talent performance and everything in between.
