Join CPI Twin Cities on June 6, 2013 for a complimentary webinar. A distinguished panel will discuss the importance of competencies, how they are developed and most importantly how they are used to enhance performance to achieve superior results.
At the heart of successful organizations everywhere is a shared knowledge that competencies drive both individual and organizational performance. Competencies, whether enterprise-wide or job specific, represent the genetic backbone for high performance. From recruitment and selection to development and succession planning, a strategic approach to talent management grounded in competencies and designed specifically for organizations can have a measurable impact on business results.
To efficiently achieve a company’s strategic objectives, every role in the organization must be well-defined and aligned with those strategic objectives for the role to effectively contribute to the success of the organization. Determine which major themes of behavior or competencies — e.g., innovation, customer engagement, action orientation — need to be demonstrated across the organization in order for the business strategy to work.
Competency modeling helps an employer identify and define the roles and career paths in the company, as well as the skills, proficiencies and characteristics employees need to be successful in those positions. With a proper competency model in place, businesses can be assured that roles throughout the organization are aligned and that they support the company’s strategic objectives. Additionally, solid competency models allow the company to recruit and hire qualified individuals for positions, while providing the best fit for an employee’s career path and the organization’s overall performance strategy.
The next “war for talent” is likely to be waged inside organizational walls, as employers focus on advancing and retaining their top talent while also continuing to develop and engage the broader workforce. Organization leaders know they must retain critical talent and enable individuals to operate successfully. Role alignment is key to that success.
Even though a good competency model can deliver a competitive advantage to savvy organizations, all too often there is a failure to deliver these advantages because models are either too complex, are difficult to use or are not aligned with culture and strategy.
This webinar is intended for HR and other Senior Leaders interested in learning more about how to use competencies to improve individual and organizational performance. To register, visit http://www.cpitwincites.com or contact Margo O’Dell at 952-915-7645 for more information.
