What are competencies?

Competencies are the combination of Knowledge, Skills and Personal Attributes (KSA) along with other job-related behaviours required to perform effectively at a job.

What is a competency framework?

CHRMP’s Competency Framework, designed especially for HR professionals, is an outcome of rigorous research done by HR consultants working with Fortune 500 companies. This in-depth research in the field of HRM expanded to include local, national and international organisations and other variables like the industry best practices, in-demand skill sets and expectations of the organisations from their HR specialists.

CHRMP worked with industry leaders and subject matter experts to derive what matters most for HR professionals to stay ahead of the competition and succeed.

Policy Framework

But how does the framework help?

In modern-day organizations, a competency framework is used in almost every HR function.

The HR Function

In recruitment, the competency framework can be used to select the best possible candidate. Through the behaviour that is observable, one can see if a candidate has the required KSA or not. It makes the process more efficient and helps in reducing bias.

The Individual

Employees will become aware of what is required to become the top performer in their role. They can work on themselves to improve their competency and become the best in their role. They can also volunteer for training and workshops that will build the competencies required by the organisation.

Each Competency indicator is cross-referenced to the CHRMP aspect from the Competency Model.

Let’s have a look at Core HR competencies

The Framework is divided into 4 main domains

Competency Based Learning
