Competency Framework Details

How does it work?

We work with your key stakeholders to establish ‘what good looks like’ for a role. This includes the ideal person’s capability, skills and behaviours.

What can it be used for?

The results of the competency framework are what a ‘best in class’ employee would look like. This means that it’s a great tool for recruiting people who demonstrate good levels of ability against the framework, as well as identifying development areas for new recruits and current employees.

We recommend using the competency framework in conjunction with our assessment centres or development centres.

Bring clarity and unity…

Understand your team

Identifying under performance or high-potential in a team can be difficult. Gain the clarity you need to grow your business.

Identify training needs

Before you start training & developing team members, you need to know what you’re aiming for. Provide your team with what they need, rather than what you think they need.

Engage your team

Bring engagement from key stakeholders and your employees; if you’re all clear on ‘what good looks like’, you’re one step closer to attaining it. 

Recruit the best

A benchmark is specific to your organisation; a top performer in another company may be an underperformer for you – find your next superstar.

Find the right roles for employees

Sometimes, employees end up in roles that aren’t best suited to their skillset. Nobody wants to lose employees with the right values & behaviours – instead, identify where they are best suited.

Increase productivity

Having the right people, in the right roles, with the right skills & behaviours is critical to business success & you will see huge returns for benchmarking to ensure you get it right.
