Identify and group the key behaviours that differentiate success.
Competency modelling involves the identification of the characteristics that differentiate high performing employees from low performing employees.
Competencies must be behaviourally defined, observable, and should provide a common language for aligning HR systems.
Competencies form the backbone of essential HR processes, such as:
- Selection criteria
- Employee development and training
- Performance evaluation
- Succession planning
In our experience, a good competency model is:
- Future focused, ensuring that employees are assessed and rewarded for behaviours that are aligned with the strategic direction of the organisation
- Transparent, practical, and realistic
- Avoids overlap or conflict between competencies
