Why competency assessments?
Competency assessments provide evidence-based performance measures
Competencies also provide uniform and objective criteria on which to evaluate an employee’s performance relative to the organization’s culture and values.
Competency-based HR approaches are fairer and more transparent than traditional ones because all job profiles are derived from the same competency dictionary.
Competencies outperform knowledge and skills!
“You may have heard the stories—an administrative assistant who has difficulty communicating with clients; a nurse who has trouble working with the team; a skilled engineer who struggles in a management role.”
Knowledge and Skills Alone Don’t Guarantee Strong Performance
Success in all jobs is determined by mastery of both WHAT the job requires and HOW the job is performed! Organizations have traditionally hired for technical abilities. When they have had to dismiss staff, it is almost always due to a lack of transferable competencies like flexibility, interpersonal skills, initiative, work ethic, etc.
