The thinking behind employee training has not changed, and a more comprehensive approach to employee growth using a competency-first mindset is necessary. Competencies are the skills, knowledge and behaviors required to perform a specific job and to achieve success.
It is essential that companies develop competencies for each position so that each employee understands what is expected, can be trained to these requirements, and can perform to the best of his or her ability. This is a more complete way of approaching learning and development which benefits the organization as a whole, and also the individual in achieving his or her own goals.
if your business wants to help your employees progress, develop programs that advance your organization’s goals, and have evidence that your staff can perform their jobs not just in theory, but in real world situations, then it is time for you to develop competency management .
