Job Skills Model

hero

A job skills model, also known as a skills and competency model or competency framework, provides talent management and HR with a common language and set of expectations for success. Often organizations lack the time, resources, or expertise to develop and maintain a customized model from scratch.

Salary.com's new Skills & Competency Model – the industry's most comprehensive, up-to-date database of jobs, skills, competencies, and proficiencies, now integrated with JobArchitect software – helps you build and maintain your company’s customized model, simplify job structure, inform recruiting and internal mobility, align compensation with performance, and create strategic career pathways.

View Core, Job Family, and Industry Job Skills & Competences for more than 5,000 Job Titles, 17 Industries, and 24 Functions.
