In specialized fields like sales, finance or marketing, it can be nearly impossible for HR departments to stay up-to-date on the technical skills your team members need to be effective in their roles.
Ensuring that employees, whether they’re new hires or organizational veterans, have the right technical skillset to be effective in their roles is crucial – both for ensuring their own success in the position, and to ensure that they’ll be making a strong contribution that aligns with the company’s goals. When the right people have the right skills for the right jobs, everyone benefits.
HRSG’s technical competencies are a product of thousands of hours of research by Industrial/Organizational Psychologists and competency experts, a process consisting of extensive research, review of best practices, and job analysis. The end result: competencies that are highly relevant, validated across a broad range of occupations and industries, and regularly updated to reflect the continued evolution of technical positions.
Competencies are not a tool to be used in isolation — you need the right tool to operationalize your investment. 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. As part of your subscription, you get regular updates to our competencies (every 12 to 24 months).
This guide introduces you to technical competencies, and to the various ways we package them at HRSG. Learn the basics on why they're used and how leading organizations are using technical competencies to drive organizational and individual success.View it now.
