Competency Framework

In 2015, Oxford County introduced a competency-based framework to provide employees with an understanding of the behaviours and skills necessary to do their job successfully and to support the organization’s Strategic Plan. This year, following the learning and development review, Human Resources staff updated the competency framework based on the experiences utilizing the framework to date.
