A competency lexicon is a crucial tool for setting up competency management in your organization.
A competency lexicon is a crucial tool for setting up competency management in your organization. It promotes an unambiguous wording with regard to competencies and expectations. It facilitates the dialogue with employees, colleagues, management ... because it ensures that everyone in the organization speaks the same language.
In order to discuss competences in an objective way, it is very important that everyone knows what is meant by each competency and how you can observe the competence in actual behavior. To what extent a competence is present, from which observable behavior can you deduce this, etc. A solid competence lexicon provides an unambiguous language.
In the Quintessence competency lexicon you will find an overview of 35 current competences with their well-defined description. On top of this it provides an overview of observable behavioral indicators per competence (concrete behavior) divided into competency levels and the extent to which a competence is present.
A competency lexicon provides a basis for drawing up job profiles, for the competency-based selection of new employees, for training and supervising your employees, for various interviews, such as high-quality performance appraisal interviews, but also for objective evaluation interviews and so on.
When you as a HR professional are talking about the competencies of people or their development opportunities in any context, a uniform language really facilitates your work.
