Why provide competency-based training and competency assessment to your employees?
Competency has the ability to
- Reduce the amount of training required
- Reduce business and company risk
- Improve organisational performance
- Improve productivity
- Improve safety
- Improve employee retention
- Reduce employee turnover
- Improve human relations
Competency is a level of achievement that can be based on a specific set of skills or discipline, occupation or job role. Some areas of competency such as EEHA, due to their impact on the safety of people and assets, are a regulatory requirement.
Reduce Risk, Improve Performance
Company boards and organisational management are on an increasing basis using competency training and competency assessment to reduce risk and improve performance by developing competency frameworks and ensuring that only competent personnel are allowed to work in their business. Competency frameworks are a roadmap of the all the skills a job role requires and are used to manage and guide training towards an outcome; a competent person for that job role.
HR and Competency
Competency frameworks can at even a basic level provide tremendous support for human relations and the development of people and skills in an organisation. At a well organised and methodical level, competency can transform organisational and human development, and can nurture and lead to exceptional human and organisational performance.
For example, EEHA is a vocational or occupational competence aimed at technical ability, other forms of competency exist. Most types of competencies are largely oriented towards soft skills such as traits, habits, emotions and interactions, or hard skills such as mathematical, chemical, electrical and mechanical.
Typically, competency frameworks have competencies organised into levels, some which are industry wide, and some that are organisation or company based.
General competency framework levels include:
- Management Competencies
- Occupation Specific Competencies
- Occupational Specific Knowledge Competencies
- Occupation Specific Technical Competencies
- Industry Specific Technical Competencies
- Industry Wide Technical Competencies
- Workplace Competencies
- Academic Competencies
- Personal Competencies
