Competency Profiling

As a dedicated HR resource for the fashion and retail industries, Human Capital recognises the need to be sharply focussed on the precise requirements and expectations of these sectors.

In line with this, Human Capital has evolved a function-wise methodology for Competency Profiling, and the competence scores form an integral part of the database maintained by the firm. This means that in addition to choosing candidates on the basis of their qualifications, job profiles and work experience, clients can also use the competence scores to identify high-performance candidates on the basis of specific parameters.

For instance, a company seeking a Merchandise Manager can seek a prospective candidate on the basis of parameters like:

Product Merchandising Skills

Experience in new product development

Capabilities in product costing and sourcing

Capabilities in Vendor Development

Leadership quality

Team building capabilities

Orientation and exposure to ERP and IT-enabled environments

Direct applicability of work experience (type of garments, locations, etc)

Exposure to Travel/Ability to handle cultural change

Initiative and Drive

Personality and negotiation skills
