“I don’t believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be”

Competencies are what people need to be successful in their jobs. Job competencies are not the same as job tasks. Competencies include all the related knowledge, skills, abilities, and attributes that form a person’s job. Identifying employee competencies can contribute to improved organizational performance.

Competencies provide organizations with a way to define in behavioral terms what it is that people need to do to produce the results that the organization desires.

By having competencies defined in the organization, it allows employees to know what they need to be productive. This will allow organizations to know potentially what resources they may need to help the employee develop and learn those competencies.
