Predicting and measuring the effectiveness of employees is a really challenging task. Even the best managers and HR departments struggle to keep tabs on how every employee’s abilities and behaviors fit with the job they’re being asked to do.
A competency-based approach provides the structure on which to build your entire talent management process. Implementing competencies allows your company to push beyond the tasks your employees need to simply get by, and strive towards the behaviors and abilities that allow your company to truly flourish.
Competencies form the foundation for augmenting every stage of the talent lifecycle. Behavioral competencies focus on clearly articulating the observable behaviors associated with soft skills such as innovation, teamwork, and client focus.
By clearly articulating the specific behaviors that drive success, they provide your organization with the objective decision-making tools to both hire the right people, and help your current employees reach their full potential.
HRSG’s behavioral competencies are the trusted standard to help you align employee behaviors with company goals. They've been developed over the course of nearly 30 years of research and development, resulting in competencies that are used by hundreds of organizations, and applicable throughout a wide range of sectors and industries.

That’s why all of our competencies are delivered through our industry-leading CompetencyCore™ software platform, enabling you to manage and integrate competencies throughout the talent management lifecycle.
