The competencies can be integrated into the Job Family Performance assessments according to their appropriate application. This provides for consistency accountability, and measurability across the enterprise.
Each competency assessment contains unique performance statements that supports how important the competency is to the success of the organization. You may add, change, or delete any of the performance statements to customize the database to suit your needs.
