What's the Difference Between Behavioral and Competency Based Assessments?

In today's job market, the best candidates are able to demonstrate the right behaviors AND competencies to get the job done.

Yet, many employers have relied upon behavioral based interviews and sometimes behavioral assessments. While this is good, the process falls short of helping the employer understands whether the candidate has the right competencies to perform the job duties.

Behavioral assessments typically analyze the drivers that indicate how an individual may respond under circumstances like pressure, change, uncertainty and authority.

Competency based assessments examine an individual's skills and abilities and compares those to the skills and abilities required to succeed in a role.

Assessing both can provide employers with a more complete view of the candidate in terms of what drives them and how well they are suited for a given role.
