It helps ensure that each one of your team is working in a job that is ideally suited to his or her inherent attitude, behaviours and skills. Across the business, this generates higher morale and greater productivity.
As a company grows, the roles needed within it change and develop. People who have grown up in the organisation start to struggle, recruitment can be hit and miss, and it becomes clear that action is needed. So how do companies cope?
A competency framework is part of the answer. It gives you a clear picture of the skills, behaviours and attitudes needed in the business, so you can help develop existing team members and recruit new ones to the point where all are aligned with the company’s key values and objectives.
One of the hardest places to start with a competency framework is developing your own inventory of skills, attitudes and behaviours, which is why this Reality HR Toolkit is so valuable.
Your competency framework will help you with some of the most potentially damaging people issues a business can face.
