Employees are often evaluated with competency modeling, which provides supervisors a description of the skills, behaviors, attitudes, and knowledge needed by those individuals hired to perform their jobs. These competencies are often developed through review sessions and group meetings of employees to ensure that they capture the language and spirit that are important to the organization. After developing the competencies that identify the dimensions of a job and the skills required, levels of performance can be defined. The specific behaviors and outcomes that indicate excellent, average, and poor performance can then be identified.
