Competency Development-Chaitanya


Competency Design

A competency framework defines the knowledge, skills and attributes required for a person to be successful in his role. However, a really impactful competency design links performance goals to the competencies required for the role. This means that for each goal that you want the employee to achieve, you must be able to define what are the specific competencies that will ensure success for the employee performing the role. BuildHr aims to create the perfect competency design for your organisation by:

  • Defining each role clearly.
  • Identifying the Key Result Areas (KRA’s) for the role-holder.
  • Collect data on successful work behaviour from successful people holding/held those respective job positions.
  • Collect and synthesize data through expert panel meetings.
  • Perform content analysis and mapping competencies.

Competency Mapping and Assessment

An accurate assessment of competencies helps in identifying what would enable the employee to perform better. Appropriate use of competency assessment results in enhancing the delivery capability of the organisation and ultimately business performance.

BuildHr proposes that competencies can be deployed at three levels– Self, Role and Organisation. Different methods are used to assess competencies accurately based on the job description provided by the organisation. We use psychometric tests, peer assessments and behavioural interviews.

  • At the individual level, we assess the inherent competencies that the employee brings with him.
  • At the level of Role, we assess the interpersonal interaction patterns and deployment of skill required for the role.
  • At the level of organisation, the demands of the external environment, internal values and culture determine the nature of competencies required.
