HIRE Module, Part III

Class Name: HIRE Module, Part III - Understanding the January 1, 2018 Transition From Traditional to Competency-Based Job Descriptions at UMMS

As we have previously announced, the UMMS HR department will be moving from our current traditional job descriptions to competency-based job descriptions as per the new UMMS Competency Model that will be effective on January 1, 2018.

On January 1, 2018, you will begin using the new electronic competency-based job description template for any new job description as well as begin the process of converting your current job descriptions to align with the new UMMS Competency Model. Therefore, it is very important that you plan to attend this training to learn about the new UMMS Competency Model, understand how it will touch all aspects of your Human Capital planning, the resources that will be available and how to create a competency-based position description.

As the new UMMS Competency Model will affect all UMMS staff, training will be provided at a later date TBD in late winter 2018 so they will have an opportunity to learn about the new model as well. 

For Part I of the HIRE module, you learned how to make the right hiring decision with confidence using the latest techniques in competency-based behavioral interviewing. Part II of the HIRE module, you learned the key to effective departmental onboarding and engaging your new hires. Part III will give you an overview of the new UMMS Competency Model and teach you how to write a competency-based job description.
