Most organizations would agree that their success depends on the capabilities of their employees. It makes sense, then, that the development of employee skills can translate into organizational growth. You may wonder, “What is the best training option to contribute to my organization’s growth?” There are many generic, pre-packaged training options available to businesses, but the truth is that formal education training programs do not necessarily provide employees with the skills required to succeed in your company.
Success lies in training your staff to meet the specific requirements of your organization. If your employees are trained to your organization’s performance management standards in a way that focuses on their skills needs, they will be better-equipped to support the growth of your organization. That’s what competency-based training is all about. Competency-based training is developed around the competency maps that have been identified for a specific job. To be assessed as competent in his or her job, a person must demonstrate the ability to perform the job’s specific tasks.
The Competency Group provides competency-based training solutions. All of our training programs are custom-designed to achieve specific performance-related outcomes. We align every training program with professional competency assessments that ensure your investment of time and money in staff will directly affect performance improvements.
