A Competency is a combination of Personality, Ability, Knowledge, and Skills that people need to perform a job effectively. By having a defined set of competencies for each role in an organisation, it shows workers the kind of behaviors the organization values, and which it requires to help achieve its objectives.
Competency Framework: A competency framework is a structure that sets out and defines each individual competency (such as problem-solving or people management) required by individuals working in an organization or part of an organization.
Our experienced people management consultants can work with you to develop, review and embed competency frameworks that can be tailored to your organisation. Through understanding your business plan and organisational culture, we will help you to develop, align and effectively implement competency frameworks that will help deliver an integrated framework across your organisation’s job roles, enabling the easy identification of role requirements and resulting performance.
