Why are competencies valuable?
Competencies are an essential way to give employees a clear vision of getting to the next level in their job track and helping your team effectively customize internal training and recruit and assign staff. They are a great way to evaluate performance and identify any skill gaps more efficiently. Lattice allows you to create your own competency or use one of our pre-filled competencies from our Competency Library.
There are two ways to create competencies within Lattice:
Create a competency from the Competencies Auditing page
Step 1: Navigate to Admin > Grow > Competencies > Auditing.
Step 2: Click Create competency.
Step 3: The competency modal will appear –– Add a name for your competency.
Step 4 (Optional): Include a description of how you will measure your competency and select to add the competency to a particular draft track or all draft tracks.
Step 5: Select Create competency.
If you decide to add the competency to track at a later time, you can do so within the track itself.
Create a competency in a track
Step 1: Navigate to Admin > Grow > Tracks > Auditing.
Step 2: Select the desired draft track or create a new track.
Please note: If you would like to edit a published track, you will first need to unpublish the track.
Step 3: Click on the plus (+) next to the Competencies header on the top-left corner.
Step 4: Select Add competency.
Step 5: Create a new competency by entering a new name. Add a description for additional detail.
Step 6: Select Add competency.
Step 7 (Optional): To reorder the competencies, select the gear icon in the right-hand corner and click Reorder competencies.
