Core Competencies vs. Job-Specific Competencies

Whether you are starting with core competencies or organization-wide values, or would like to assign competencies at the position-level, emPerform makes it easy for you set, track, and evaluate competencies.

Core competencies

Refer to a distinct set of skills that serve as the cornerstone of a company’s success. To ensure that all employees are aligned with the organization’s values, many companies articulate a set of core competencies in the form of a value statement. These skills are expected to be embraced by all employees and form an integral part of the organization’s DNA.

Job-specific competencies

Describe ‘how’ a specific job or role is expected to be performed and what behaviors or skills are expected from employees in their positions. Many companies work with their management team and leadership groups to carefully define 5-7 job-specific competencies for every role plus additional for leadership or unique roles.

Assign Competencies By Position, Department, or Group

With the click of a button, emPerform allows you to assign competencies to the entire organization, or to individual departments, divisions, employee level, or position – increasing the relevance and utility of reviews across the entire organization.

Track Competencies Across the Entire Organization

emPerform comes with powerful reporting functionality and dashboards that allow you to report on the status and progress of competencies across your organization. Identify trends and development opportunities to ensure your talent is excelling in these core skills.
