Role-Based Mapping to Competency-Level
All competencies need not be demonstrated all the time. Depending upon the role the employee has, he/she may be expected to demonstrate only some of them. Indeed, those may be the only ones he/she is assessed upon, but never the less, basic competencies do need to be demonstrated always.
The leadership competencies expected to be demonstrated may vary with different roles and positions. Along with the competency itself, the expected level of proficiency also varies. There are graded levels of expected behaviors for each competency. Typically, an employee at a senior position needs to demonstrate higher grades of the competency-behavior. Middle and junior levels will need to demonstrate progressively lower grades. For those who require to be demonstrating higher grades, it does not mean that the lower grades are not expected, it simply means that it is understood that they have already surpassed the lower levels and they have already imbibed them. They will be assessed, however only on the higher grades. HR must communicate to the employee at all levels of his/her progress that the performance expectations change along with the changes in the expected level of the competencies. However, basic execution ability and achieving performance excellence in the defined sphere of the KRAs always remains at all levels.
