An individual's core competencies are determined by two groups of factors:
- Skills, Knowledge, and Technical Qualifications
- Behavioral Characteristics, Personality Attributes, and Individual Aptitudes
Although traditional hiring has focused primarily on evaluating a candidate's skills and technical qualifications, a competency-based approach includes an analysis of a candidate's behavioral characteristics as well. Competency-based hiring is grounded in the identification of core competencies required for success and the subsequent evaluation of each candidate's demonstration of those competencies in their past experiences.
