What is an HR competency framework?

A competency is a cluster of skills, knowledge, and expertise needed to become efficient at performing a specific job.

The aggregate of competencies that are important to a particular role or (HR) function is what we call a competency model.

A competency model provides a tangible framework for performance management, skill gap analysis, upskilling, and provides a template for what the ideal (HR) organization will look like.

How are HR competencies structured?

In this framework, a competency is split up into multiple constructs. Each construct consists of several (sub) dimensions.

For example, being data-driven is divided into two constructs: data literacy and analytics translator. Each of these constructs has (sub) dimensions. Sub dimensions of data literacy include the ability to read data, apply data, and communicate data.

Each dimension is scored on three proficiency levels, making it easy to assess the proficiency of individuals or groups.
