Greek HRM: Building the Critical Competencies
This article discusses results of the 2012 global Human Resources Competency Study (HRCS), led by The RBL Group and the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan. Over the past 25 years, this on-going research project has provided the most global, comprehensive, and empirical identification of the competencies expected of HR professionals, and the impact of these competencies on both individual HR professional effectiveness and business performance. HRCS findings have influenced thousands of HR departments, from global giants to smaller organisations in every continent. This article points out a number of the key findings of the research and identifies implications of the study findings for HR talent planning, assessment, and development.
