Assign Competencies to a Job

Competencies are a set of skills that are typically innate rather than learned. Select the competencies that should be associated with a job along with the minimum proficiency level.

Assign competencies to a job in the Competencies page of the Add/Change Jobs business rules page.


If minimum proficiency levels are not set for each competency, the rating target cannot be displayed on a performance review. This step must be completed prior to review distribution.
