Competencies: The Building Blocks of Organizational Talent
Competencies are the skills, attitudes, and attributes required in an organization's employees for it to achieve its strategic goals. They are the building blocks of the organization's collective talent and a way to define, communicate, and measure job performance.
Considered the starting point for many talent management processes, they provide a methodology to align individual performance to strategy, goals, and objectives. They create a common language for talent and easily communicate what is important for success.
Integrating Competency Models in Talent Management
Embedding a competency model into talent management practices and processes ensures closer alignment between talent strategy and business strategy.
Through competency modeling, we help our clients create a firm foundation for various talent management processes such as job profiling, recruitment, assessment, performance management, learning and development, succession planning, and career planning. The competency framework makes these processes more cohesive, creates a consistent, measurable, and objective data-driven system for talent decisions, and aligns an organization's people to its strategy.
