In every organization, human capital is one of the most important resources. Managing, nurturing and developing it is a fundamental tenet of management. As basic as it sounds, this aspect of management can be complex.

Many organizations have HR systems, which are standalone and not integrated.  This causes managers to lose focus, which results in them not knowing exactly what are needed by the organization and the outcome to be achieved. They end up facing the following challenges:

  • High staff turnover
  • Hiring or promoting the wrong person for the job
  • Not having enough of competent employees to achieve organizational goals
  • Employees are not appraised objectively
  • Employees are not developed or trained effectively
  • No proper career progression pathway to retain employees
  • No proper system in place to reward employees
  • Lack of a talent pool for succession

To overcome the above challenges, it is important to link all the HR systems through a good HR framework. Defining competencies for every job and consolidating all competencies into a competency framework, incorporating career paths is the first step.  This is necessary as the framework can be used to develop a competency-based HR processes such as:

  • Manpower planning - provides a snapshot of the positions and the competencies needed to ensure organisation's success
  • Recruitment and Selection - ensure the right candidate with the competencies required is hired for the job
  • Performance Management - ensures performance appraisals are outcome-based, measurable, observable and objective. It also ensures continuous basis of gathering evidences
  • Training Needs Analysis - reveals the knowledge of gaps between actual and current & future job competencies and conduct a more effective interventions
  • Learning & Development – employers can leverage by using learning and developmental interventions that will have a positive effect on career progression and productivity
  • Talent Management – establish processes to measure competence, identify & determine the required & available competence and obtain & retain those necessary for success
  • Succession Planning - provides clear and objective path & inventory of job roles & competencies to attract, develop and retain talents
