The AspireVue platform is changing the way employers are recruiting and retaining talent. To ensure the best employee selection and development outcomes, our extensive job description and competency libraries, and built-in measurement of skills, abilities, and achievements, provide a foundation to align all employees with the organization’s success standards.

Better Talent Acquisition

Hiring the right candidates to perform jobs in your business can be an incredibly challenging and costly undertaking. AspireVue competency modeling makes bringing in new talent for your business a snap with a flexible selection of skills and experience that is uniquely matched to your business needs.

Today, 93% of C-Suite executives state that using competency models is most important to meet organizational goals. By ensuring that your employees are performing and motivated you improve your company’s bottom line. To create this positive environment, our competency model gives you a strategic plan to identify your core competency and implement it. 

What is competency modeling?

A competency model is a guideline developed by subject matter experts that sets out the observable abilities, skills, knowledge, motivations and traits needed for successful job performance. 

Why Your Company Needs Competency Modeling

A good competency model informs each stage of the employee development process, applies weighting for priorities, and aligns all employees on the success standards to which they, their departments, and the organization should be held accountable. It also helps create a culture of accountability for both the employer and the employee, which promotes a sense of shared responsibility.


Greater performance success has been attributed to organizations with thoroughly defined competency models. In a competency survey by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), 93% of 500 C-suite executives claimed that competency models were important to their organization’s performance success.


Within AspireVue, competency modeling is automated to identify the hard and soft skills of a position, 

including recruitment, talent and performance management, success planning, coaching, and performance appraisals.

AspireVue provides opportunities for the employer to better understand the employee characteristics that lead to higher performance, improved efficiency, and increased productivity.

The resulting competency model provides the foundation for selection purposes, standards in terms of reliability, validity, and fairness, and establishing a very clear development path for all employees.

How are competency Models Used?

Competency Models are used for a variety of H.R. practices.

Recruitment ...

Fully developed competency models are often used for the development of job postings. When they are well-defined and clear, organizations have a better chance of finding more closely matched candidates.

Talent / Performance Management ...

Defining what success should look like within the organization boils down to the performance of the workforce; a competency model can define what performance success should look like for each role within an organization. This benchmark helps HR to connect the function of each job with organizational goals and also ensure that the talent of employees is developed.

Performance Appraisal ...

Competency models provide the framework needed to properly assess employees during a performance review; both the employee and employer have a clearly defined list of behaviors and skills to work from.
