WSQ - Develop and Implement In-House Competency and Career Pathing Framework


Course introduction

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 is needed by the organization and the outcome to be achieved. This results in reduced performance, high turnover, lack of competent people to perform the job, no proper career progression and hence demotivation. To overcome these challenges, It is important to link all the HR systems through the development of 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 build on other HR processes
