Modeling of Core Competencies in the Registrar's Office
Pikowsky, Reta
College and University, v84 n4 p63-67 Spr 2009
The Office of the Registrar at the Georgia Institute of Technology, in cooperation with the Office of Human Resources, has been engaged since February 2008 in a pilot project to model core competencies for the leadership team and the staff. It is the hope of the office of Human resources that this pilot will result in a model that can be used campus-wide to model core competencies in other areas. Ms. Marita Sullivan, in the office of Human resources, is a mentor and a partner in this process. The benefits of having competency models in place include providing information to staff and managers that is useful for career development; assisting employees in understanding the behaviors and skills needed to be successful in their current jobs; allowing the office to target training and development activities more precisely and to use scarce budget dollars more effectively; assisting in identifying good candidates for open positions; providing a useful tool for managers to improve staff performance; and facilitating succession planning. This article presents the steps undertaken at the Georgia Tech for the development of their core competency model. (Contains 4 tables.)
