Force-fitting employees to job descriptions leads to unhappy people and substandard performance. For years, HR professionals have struggled with this dilemma. But it doesnâ??t have to be that way. Competency-Based Human Resource Management describes a new model of performance management that matches employee talents to the work that must be done. By focusing on the critical competencies that distinguish star performers, HR professionals can transform the way they recruit, select, train, develop, and compensate top-performing employees.

From the Inside Flap:

The traditional HR emphasis on job descriptions shortchanges both the employee and the organization, according to authors David Dubois and William Rothwell. The more effective method is to fit employee talents to the work that must be accomplished.

Moving beyond industrial-age notions of work, COMPETENCY-BASED HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT describes how to reinvent the HR department so that job competencies--rather than job descriptions--become the foundation for all HR efforts. By isolating and focusing on the key competencies that distinguish top performers, HR departments can unleash the power of exemplary performers across all job categories and see significant gains in productivity.

This comprehensive handbook shows organizations how to make the transition from a work-based environment to a competency-based foundation. It includes planning tools, checklists, worksheets, and other practical aids that guide HR professionals as they transform their organizations into world-class performers.
