7 How We Define Competencies  Defined as… the characteristics of an individual which underlie performance or behaviour at work * They are: Measurable Observable “can do” + “will do” = competencies (skills, knowledge) (behaviour) * Source: Public Service Commission 7

9 9 Competencies – Key Facts Include only the key competencies (behavioural and technical) to successfully fulfill requirements of a job/profession There is a progression in proficiency (logical and cumulative) Indicators describe behaviours that an employee demonstrates at that proficiency level: oThe list includes key behaviours for each competency; it is not exhaustive. The list has to be manageable and accessible; oEach indicator is measurable and uses action verbs; and oThe vocabulary must be relevant to users but also be in plain language.

10 10 Competencies What Does Success Look Like? Successful performers: –Display professional behavior in a consistent manner; –Fulfill job requirements by being productive and effective at their work level; –Perform at or above the job level (quality, timeliness and responsiveness) as a matter of course; and –Use particular approaches and demonstrate specific behaviours that facilitate the meeting of objectives. Poor PerformerFar Exceeds Expectations Successful Performer

11 11 How We Use Competencies in the FM Community Benchmarking (Job Competency Profile): Describes the required proficiency level for each competency for a specific role or position within an organization Hiring the right people: Use competency based tools to get the right fit between job requirements and candidate competencies Learning and Development : Competencies are the basis for employee learning plans, and can help managers focus resources on the learning activities that best correspond to the development needs of their employees Performance Management: Use of competencies in the performance management cycle ensures that individuals are evaluated on criteria that are relevant to the job and they are aware of these criteria
