Competency-based HR and the CHCF – webinar (6 July) and face to face training in Manila, Philippines (20 July)


Competency-based HR can help an organisation select, develop and manage staff in an efficient, fair and strategic manner. Producing competent and well-managed staff, in turn, leads to accountable and effective organisations.

The Core Humanitarian Competency Framework (CHCF) was developed in 2010 to provide humanitarian organisations with a common set of behaviours that have proven to be effective in responses. Since then it has been adopted by many organisations proving to add value and increase efficiency for its users.

We are currently working to promote the use of competency-based HR and the Core Humanitarian Competency Framework in NGOs in the Philippines. With this in mind, we are pleased to announce a cost-free webinar session and a training day taking place in Manila for HR staff and managers.

The webinar will introduce competency-based HR and the CHCF, participants will then be invited to attend a half-day training on competency-based recruitment and selection methods/tools and staff development planning methods/tools.
