One of the most important decision organisational leaders make concerns getting the right people/talent who are competent to do the Jon on board. We would like to think that it is not as advanced as rocket science; however, it is not too far from this.
We have helped hundreds of clients to make the best decisions about their people. As psychologists and scientists, we make use of a range of psychometric tests, and we design bespoke assessments to ensure the approach we take to assist our clients in finding best-suited people is valid and reliable.
Competencies are the integrated knowledge, skills, judgment, and attributes that people need to perform a specific job effectively. We help our clients to define a set of competencies for each role in the business, which helps them to communicate to their people which behaviors the organization values and needs to achieve its objectives. The question is: how do you define these sets of skills, behaviors, and attitudes that employees need in order to perform their roles effectively? How do you know they’re qualified enough for the job? In other words, how do you know what to measure?
In our quest to define and evaluate competencies, we have helped several clients to develop a competency framework.
