Technical competency Assessment

The application of knowledge and abilities required to function well in a specific job are technical competences. These competences are closely related to the information, abilities, and “know-how” required for successful performance

Benefits of Technical competency Assessment

  • It can aid in the identification of critical job-specific and company-related competencies that HR can use to improve selection procedures.
  • To remain competitive in the global marketplace, employees must be developed. Competency-based evaluation can help compare employees’ skill sets to those necessary for their positions and find areas where they can grow.
  • Competency-based assessment is an important aspect of the continuous feedback process because it allows to measure and document performance in relation to organisational and job-specific competencies.
  • Competency assessments can assist in motivating and engaging personnel. It is an excellent method to recognise their abilities and knowledge while also empowering them to take charge of their professional development.
