What are competencies?

Learn how competencies benefit your organization and see how HRSG competencies are structured

Competencies are abilities, skills, knowledge, motivations, or traits that you can observe and define in terms of behaviours required to succeed in a job. They’re the foundation of CompetencyCore. 

  • For employees: Competencies help identify strengths, address performance gaps, and plan a successful career path that maximizes potential.
  • For managers: Competencies provide a reliable, actionable, and detailed method of evaluating and supporting employees.
  • For the organization: Competencies provide a powerful and consistent way to identify, develop, coordinate, and retain top talent.

HRSG competencies use a five-level proficiency scale. Each level is defined with a summary and a list of behaviours.

  1. Definition
  2. Proficiency levels
  3. Level summaries
  4. Behavioural indicators
