Strong Competency Foundation

Accelerate your talent strategy with competency assessments and management

A strong competency management framework is the core of any effective talent management program – but it’s more than just a list of behaviors and skills. The right competency framework helps you to define your talent’s role in business strategy execution, support and define your organizational culture, and helps to promote and develop your people and identify future leaders.

The benefits of effective competency assessment and management are magnified when they are integrated throughout an organization’s talent management strategy and practices – from hiring the best person to accelerating onboarding of new hires, to succession planning and accurate performance measurement. Saba has also partnered with world-renowned providers like DDI to offer an industry-leading competency framework.

Features

Competency Library

With easy to understand language, and clear action-based clear descriptions, our competencies provide clarity and drive a common language and objective for performance. This clarity helps managers and employees understand what's expected of them, and what is valued as part of the organizational culture.

Flexible Rating Scales

A good competency and rating framework enables managers and employees to easily identify and communicate current performance, and what it would take to improve performance. Use an existing rating scale, or can create your own aligned with Saba's competencies to ensure your managers and employees know where they stand, and where they are going.

Customizable

Start with the Saba Competency library- and make it your own. You can edit the existing competencies to align with the culture and values of your organization, or you can add your own unique competencies to the library to create a robust and personalized framework.

Integrated Manager Tips

Support managers with performance comments and coaching tips that make it easy for managers to provide effective feedback in competency reviews. You can leverage existing tips or create your own to help managers develop the future leaders of your organization.

It simplifies the process for both HR and our managers, as they can use DDI's content to make recommendations for learning activities as part of their employees' learning plans. Plus, DDI’s reputation speaks for itself — it’s like we’ve just pulled the red Ferrari into the garage.
