Employers embrace the use of competencies

The use of competencies – definitions of behaviours and skills that are essential for effective performance at work – is becoming commonplace, according to research by IRS.

A survey covering the employers of one in seven employees in the UK shows that, extrapolated across the economy, 7.8 million people work for employers that have introduced competencies.

Almost two-thirds of organisations now use competencies in their HR processes, and they are more likely to be used by larger employers, and those in public sector healthcare and financial services.

Behavioural and technical competencies are now almost equally used by employers that have introduced definitions of behaviours and skills within their organisations.
