Competency Profiling

IDENTIFYING THE COMPETENCIES FOR KEY ROLES ALLOWS YOU TO RECRUIT AND SELECT THE BEST EMPLOYEES

Competency Profiling
Identify competencies for better
hiring and development decisions

Leading organizations are using competency profiling to:

  • Recruit and select employees with a strong fit to the role and organization 
  • Set performance expectations and measure contributions objectively 
  • Focus employees on what is critical to enhancing their performance and increasing their level of work satisfaction 
  • Provide a roadmap for employee development and career planning 
  • Identify and assess 'competency gaps' in individuals and groups, thereby providing valuable insights for creating highly targeted development and training initiatives 

5 + 1 Competency Model ®

Hudson's most commonly used tool in the development of competency frameworks is the 5+1 Competency Model, which is based on an extensive study of more than 100 competency models from international companies and from leading research in Human Resources.

Our 5+1 model combines:

  • Five generic clusters of competencies 
  • One cluster of company-specific technical competencies 

The clusters included in the competency model are:

Information
Management
Required competencies with regard to the processing of information, facts, perceptions, knowledge and ideas in view of the development of new information and knowledge.
Task
Management
Required competencies for organizing and structuring work up to executive levels in view of an optimal flow of tasks and activities.
People
Management
The competencies required to manage people within a functional or structured context.
Interpersonal
Management
The competencies required to manage relationships with others, without an immediate structural context.
Personal
Management
The competencies required to manage oneself.
Technical
Expertise
Technical expertise refers to skills that are company or job-specific and necessary to perform effectively in a role.

 

Hudson's Methodology

Designed to be flexible, Hudson's 5+1 Competency Model® can be applied to different roles within an organization in order to create a customized success profile. In turn, candidates can be assessed and evaluated against the model, ensuring an efficient and effective selection process.

Hudson maintains a focus on involving the client when developing the competency profiles in order to obtain the most accurate and organization-specific information throughout the design and build stages. This is generally done in the form of focus groups and a final key stakeholder review. The output should be a fully functional and tailored competency framework that reflects your unique culture and environment.
