The book became a bestseller and is currently still a widely accepted and frequently used source of many Human Resource strategies. Because companies look for different employees with different competencies, each organisation develops its own version of the competency framework.
The CPHR Competency Framework details the pathway to the CPHR designation. Based on the 2013 Professional Practice Analysis, the framework is based on a dual-competency model, featuring both the technical (or functional) and general (or enabling) skills, abilities and knowledge necessary to effectively practice human resources.
Most companies don’t limit themselves to only one core competence. These competencies also vary based on the sector the company operates in. Hospitals focus on medical expertise and patient care, whereas a health information agency focuses on the development and health of people.
