Hiring the best candidates and developing people are critical tasks entrusted to HR professionals. In finding the perfect fit, recruiters sometimes focus on the role itself and not on the competencies needed to perform the job. Another costly mistake done by most organizations is making decisions without the data. In finding and developing the right people, these are some of the questions HR professionals should answer:

  • What is the current situation of the organization?
  • What are the competencies critical in the role, which will help the company achieve its organizational goals?
  • How far are we from our business goals? What are the tools essential in working towards the organization’s vision?
  • Is our Competency Model matched with the values and business objectives of the organization?
