Enhancing Capability at PSEG: Identifying Competencies Needed for Future Success
What leads to successful performance in a nuclear engineering organization? PSEG created a process that includes competency models and resource guides that provide definitions and specific behaviors that enable engineers to:
- Visualize what is expected of them to do a better job
- Asses themselves against an ideal model
- Develop an action plan to close the gap between current and ideal performance
The competency models establish a consistent procedure for selecting new engineers and for developing existing staff. They facilitate career planning to motivate employees. They create a system where individuals understand and use their strengths and development areas to enhance performance. Developing competency models for all engineering positions provides PSEG with consistent standards of performance and accountability.
