Council White Paper: Investment in Staff Competencies Equals Competitive Edge

 Permanent link
MADISON, Wis. (12/23/13)--A paper published last week by the CUNA Human Resources and Training Development Council seeks to offer credit union managers advice on how to develop and align skills with institutional strategy.
 
The white paper, called "Evaluating and Developing Competencies: Creating Customized Models for Employees," is aimed at aiding credit unions looking to create or improve customized evaluation and training programs.
 
The report attempts to explain how credit unions can fine-tune their operations through the development of competencies, while improving internal hiring practices and appealing to high-performing employees.
 
The council said that competencies include both specific skills and general workplace abilities, with the latter including learning agility, communications and accountability.
 
The paper is free to CUNA council members. Non-council members may purchase it for $50. Use the resource link for more information.
