Does your organization use a competency model for developing performance appraisal tools and other HR systems? Does your organization use a competency model for HR professionals? You are not alone.  SHRM has been working for the last year to develop and validate a competency model for the HR profession. This year SHRM unveiled the SHRM HR Professional Competency Model with the aim of serving the profession in an effort to develop professional competence. If you or your organization want to develop an understanding of the critical competencies needed for HR, come to this session. Learn about how SHRM developed and validated its model and is developing several self-development tools for proficiency growth. Learn how and why these new tools and self-assessments were created and why you should use them to guide your career development.
