Develop Your Core Competencies
In this environment of fast-paced change, employees need to have the knowledge and skills necessary to perform effectively and enable the organization to achieve its business objectives.
A "core" competency is a description of a particular behaviour, skill or attribute that all employees should possess to meet organizational needs, regardless of their job or role.
Most federal government organizations have identified core competencies for their staff, and many non-profit and private sector organizations have as well.
