    In compliance with BrainMass rules this is not a hand in ready assignment but is only guidance.

    Current Role:
    In my current position as offices HR the three competencies I require are knowledge, communication skills and critical thinking skills.
    Competency One:
    I require knowledge in human resources. This knowledge is required for carrying out my tasks and duties related to recruitment, placement, training, development, performance evaluation, payroll preparation, labor law issues, union related issues, and promotion/disciplinary action related matters. I also require knowledge of my company's culture, policies, revenue, and internal issues. This knowledge is required to align my HR work to the requirements of my organization(1). My knowledge base in both HR knowledge and cultural knowledge of my organization is strong. However, my weakness is my inability to network successfully in my organization. I come to know of policy developments only after they are officially announced in press.

For example, if a union representative comes to me with a grievance, I must be able to negotiate with him effectively and balance the interests of my company and employees. My strengths are interpersonal communication skills are excellent. I am strong in person to person communication, however, I face difficulty when communicating with a group of people.
