Behavioral competencies

Behavioral competencies refers to the set of skills, attributes, abilities, etc that an individual requires in order to perform a specific role at a company. Some of the most commonly encountered include communication skills, problem-solving abilities, and emotional empathy.

These types of skills are crucial to the functioning of most businesses but they cannot be readily identified by educating, training, etc. That’s why it’s crucial for HR managers to ensure that they can ascertain whether candidates possess these behavioral competencies during the interviewing process.
