How to Easily Create and Maintain a Competency Framework

A competency framework is a set of characteristics (or competencies) defined by your business to successfully perform roles.

More importantly though, is what do you want to use a competency framework for. What you can use a competency framework for and what you do (or should) use it for may be 2 different things. Be clear on the purpose of your competency framework to ensure it stays relevant.

 

It’s important to be flexible and re-usable when defining and building your framework using “levels” of competence, rather than re-defining the competency for each role. A simple example of this is the Microsoft Excel skill. The junior role may require a “Foundation level of Microsoft Excel”, mid-tier role at “Intermediate” and senior role at “Advanced”.

Top 8 Tips on Maximising Your Recruitment Process

We compiled our top 8 insider tips for managing your recruitment process.

1. Map and communicate your recruitment process to ensure it works for you

Typically there are few people involved, so create a simple flowchart of the recruitment process for your business.

For many roles you may be able to promote an existing employee, who has already expressed an interest in moving into this role. If the glove fits, go with it. This will aid in faster decisions, improved performance and a higher employee engagement and retention. From there, backfilling the previous role should […]
