When you identify your company’s competencies, you’re defining what success looks like in the organization.
How does your organization define the professional attributes and interpersonal behaviors that equate success? Psychological Associates’ Competency Modeling assists decision makers by creating a common competency framework that is the basis for all of your Human Resources activities.
Our Approach to Competency Modeling
Psychological Associates’ approach to Competency Modeling begins with 73 clearly defined competencies. A PA Consultant meets with your key decision makers to hand-facilitate a robust, objective, and scientific process for your organization.
Our Competency Modeling selection process can be customized to describe any targeted job or leadership role, or your organizational culture at large. Any competencies deemed irrelevant are discarded until a final set of performance descriptors is established. These core competencies can then serve as a baseline for measuring future performance. The result is a clear definition of not only what is expected, but also how the competencies are demonstrated.
Benefits and Outcomes
“Psychological Associates is our “go to company” when we vet employee candidates, implement employee engagement surveys and conduct individual employee coaching sessions. They greatly increase our ability to recruit and manage our most costly and also greatest asset … our employees. We would find it hard to operate as effectively and confidently without Psychological Associate’s valued support and direction.”
“The quality of Psychological Associates reports…in general, they have quite good insights into the people taking the tests. Another one is that, by virtue of having worked with us for years, they know us fairly well. As a result, they are able to do some successful matching between candidates and the company.”
“We actually sought Psychological Associates out when we recognized that we had a need for higher level resources in our leadership development program… They came back with a very clear and concise approach to helping us with our leadership development program.”
