If recruitment, selection, learning, and performance management are pillar functions of the HR department, competencies should be considered the foundation on which each of these are built.

Unfortunately, many organizations don't have a solid understanding of how to build an effective competency framework. Moreover, if a competency model exists at an organization, is it being used across each function appropriately? Are your competencies accurately reflected in your job descriptions? How about your development plans? And, when was the last time the model was tweaked or updated to reflect today’s jobs, culture, and goals? Answering these questions and developing a solid competency model will lead to greater alignment throughout your organization.

In this program, Dr. Lilly Lin of PAN will discuss:

  • How a solid competency framework can benefit your organization and lead to success in key areas.
  • Effective approaches for gathering data to build a competency framework.
  • Important legal considerations associated with your competency framework.
