Employee competency mapping as a mechanism to weed out competency gaps in information technology- A conceptual study
Human resource is of paramount importance for the success of any organisation. It is a source of strength and aid. Human resources are the wealth of an organisation which can help it in achieving its goals. Competency mapping is often heard in all the industries making it apparent the need for assessing the competences among the employees and upgrading them so that right type of persons are assigned with the work. Competency mapping is a process which is designed to consistently measure and assess the individual and group performance as aligned with the expectations of the organisation and the stakeholders. The organisations function in cut-throat competition which necessitates the organisation to identify the set of core competencies which are key differentiators in the market place to be incorporated in the organisation. Strategic HR implementation needs a well-defined Competency mapping in the organisations. The current study is an attempt in this direction to identify how employee competency mapping has evolved over the years as an effective tool in creating and sustaining competitive advantage for the organisations.
