In order to get the most out of your competency framework, you need to use your competencies efficiently and effectively.


While in the past organizations lacked the necessary tools, this is no longer the case.

Various tools are now available for use in talent acquisition, HR, and performance management systems. Here are just some of the tools that will allow you to get the most out of your competencies:

Interview Questions – Competency-based interview questions give you a structured approach that increases your ability to predict the best hire and allow you to define your ideal candidate.

Competency Assessments – Competency assessments enable you to better understand employees’ strengths and skill gaps for development or performance feedback.

Learning Resources and Plans – Help employees address skill gaps with banks of learning resources directly linked to competencies at various proficiency levels.

Personal Competency Inventories – Help employees plan their career development with an inventory of their competency strengths and gaps.

HRSG’s CompetencyCore is one of the few software programs available on the market that positions competency as a focal point of talent management. For companies using competencies for the first time, or looking to reinvent their framework, CompetencyCore provides the structure, process, and content that paves the way for a smooth and successful transition.

CompetencyCore integrates all of the tools listed above, and more! This is just a small sample of what is included in our eBook, Optimizing Your Competency Framework.

This eBook will be a valuable resource for organizations looking to improve the functionality of their competency frameworks, and includes a wealth of information on addressing short-falls, using tools, characteristics of optimization, and much more.
