What is a Behavioral Competency?

Competencies are the specific behaviors employers look for in their employees. Documented competencies help employers to identify and communicate key attributes their organisations need to be more effective and successful.

In measuring employee performance, employers often review individual performance of the desired and, in some cases, undesired competencies associated with a position. Measuring competencies can help employees understand what they are doing well and areas for improvement. Competencies tend to provide the framework of a position. Furthermore, they can assist in a constructive discussion about what it takes to be successful in that position. There are over 1500 Behavioural Competencies to choose from in FinxS, and they are continually being updated.

Besides using competencies to help evaluate employees, organisations can use them in recruiting, determining compensation and making effective decisions about training direction and advancements.

It’s almost like giving your team member a chance to tell you what type of a person they are and what they want from the job.
