Firms are becoming increasingly aware of the need to have competent employees for survival and long term sustainability. All types of organizations irrespective of their size, structure and age are talking about competencies. Pharmaceutical industry has emerged as one of the significant industries and one of the top contributing industries to economic growth of India. It necessitated the identification of important competencies both for sales staff and HR professionals for enhanced organisation effectiveness. newlineThe aim of the study was to measure the competency levels of sales staff of Pharmaceutical industry. Eight competency groups, i.e., technical, personal, Client orientation, time management, Interpersonal, team player and presentation competency groups and their linkages to the organization effectiveness were analyzed using the statistical software SPSS. Altogether 8 competency groups and 6 factors of organization effectiveness items were analyzed. The use of survey data in the study helps us to provide evidence of the relationship between the competencies and organization effectiveness. newlineThe aim of the study is to explore formalization of competency mapping in organizations of India.
