Competency-related human resource management is about using the concept of competency and the results of competency analysis to inform and improve the processes of recruitment and selection, employee development and employee reward. To cut through all the jargon, the concept of competency is quite simply a useful term for describing the sort of behaviour that organisations are seeking in order to attain high levels of performance. The concept provides a common language which helps people to focus on the key behavioural issues affecting results. The notion of competency can be used to describe what people are expected to know and be able to do if they are to carry out their roles successfully.
