The search for critical talent begins with your own organization.

The CompetencyCore Succession Planning software builds a validated competency inventory of your employees that can be assessed for and matched to jobs in your organization.  Quickly and easily search your entire organization to identify qualified employees to fill key roles with a few clicks of a button.

  • Step 1: Identify the job you would like to put a succession plan in place for, or build profiles “on-the-fly” to find employees with specific competency sets.
  • Step 2: Rank candidates by best competency fit to see who in your organization most closely matches the job profile.
  • Step 3: Identify competency gaps immediately to build development plans for potential successors.

What are validated competencies

When an employee undergoes an assessment (e.g. self, supervisor, multi-rater), a supervisor or manager must validate the competency to ensure the individual really demonstrates that particular competency in his or her job.  Only validated competencies are included in the database for succession planning purposes.
