A modern approach to managing people The way we manage talent has evolved. Gone are the days of corporate-driven development and rigid organizational structures. Today, employees expect more clarity around job requirement and goals, and access to the tools needed to drive their own development. Competencies set the foundation for a modern talent management approach because they go beyond the basic requirements of a job to identify the behaviors that top performers demonstrate. Instead of focusing on what a person typically does on the job, competencies describe how a highly effective worker will achieve success. Most importantly, competencies describe those successful behaviors in terms that are observable and measurable. Incorporating competencies within your Talent Management platform will enhance not only the way you recruit, develop and measure your people, but ensure that all people management strategies are aligned with the strategic goals and objectives of your business. How competencies help Align performance to achieve company vision and common goals Build a dynamic workforce to meet current and future needs Empower employees to see their potential for growth By connecting employee behaviors to organizational objectives, competencies help the entire workforce align their performance and development in support of organizational goals. When you understand the make-up of your workforce, you can ensure you have the right talent in the right place, at the right time, making your organization more responsive to business needs and drivers. Competencies enable employees to align their skills and ambitions with the needs of the workplace, helping to visualize career progression and take an active role in exploring their potential. © Human Resource Systems Group.
