Competencies are the required set of skills and behaviors to perform a set duties assigned to an employee apart from their technical skills required to perform a task.
The approach relies on building complex job profiles that look at the responsibilities and activities of the job and the competencies required to accomplish them. The detailed process looks like this:
Define organizational culture
Define essential job activities and responsibilities.
Define technical competencies and skills required.
Define behavioral competencies.
