Right person. Right job. Right time. Right context.

When it comes to making the most suitable personnel choices for your business, you can’t take any chances. gradar helps you settle on reliable recruitment and talent management decisions by supporting the competency management process. We always match employee skills to job requirements and organisational culture.

A reliable approach to talent management

It’s more important than ever to recruit the right people. With a shift in the modern working environment, correctly matching employee skills to job requirements and organisational culture has become crucial to long-term success. We know it as ‘competency management’.

Competency management is a structured approach used to link a person’s competencies to the specification of a certain role within your company. The comparison of ‘target’ and ‘actual’ profiles can be used to plan for further training, personnel development and succession planning.

gradar’s competency module provides an instant connection between job requirements and behavioural examples from TMA’s global competency library.

The TMA competency model

The TMA software suite offers a comprehensive solution for job profiling, talent management, feedback and assessment.

It’s not about bending someone to the needs of a job. It’s about finding the job profile that gives a person the best chance of delivering first-class results - and enjoying themselves as they do it.

The process looks to find the right fit, aligning the needs of the worker with your needs as an organisation. There’s value on both sides.

The TMA model is made up of 53 competencies, subdivided into four levels:

  • General
  • Operational
  • Tactical
  • Strategical

These subdivisions ensure a real-life fit of behavioural examples to the different levels of jobs within a job family or career ladder. Additional information about development potential, interview advice and coaching pathways take the process a step further.

TMA and gradar

We automatically translate your job evaluation results into up to seven TMA competencies as part of the grading process. The selection is based on career path, job grade and global job family, with reports easily filtered and exported as an editable Word document.

competency management

We used an evidence-based approach to select general competencies for every career path and range of grades. These are then combined with specific competencies for each global job family, career path and range of grades.

benchmark

Best predictors for on-the-job performance are intelligence and conscientiousness, so we chose the closely-related competencies of “learning ability”, “problem analysis” and “workmanship” as default within the Individual Contributor career path.

For the management career path we chose different competencies for the operational, tactical and strategic range that account for the specific nature of the associated management tasks.

Our selection of project management competencies was inspired by TMA’s result area of “planning and organising”.

As with our job evaluation system, we want to provide a bespoke service to our clients. Matching competencies to jobs and people is a difficult process with a number of variables specific to each business. There isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ approach, so we adapt to the level of customisation you need.

Our system allows you to:

  • Manually overwrite job-specific competency matches
  • Amend competency definitions or behavioural examples
  • Re-map the TMA catalogue to suit your company
  • Integrate a custom competency model
