Core competencies

The core competencies are the skills, behaviors and attitudes that we need in order for DRC to be successful. They signal the expected areas and levels of performance while providing us with an indication or map of the behaviors and actions that will be valued, assessed and recognized.

DRC has defined a set of core competencies that employees must posess and exercise in their daily work. The core competencies will secure that DRC as a whole is goal and result oriented, that we have an appropriate and professional tone, and that we hold the highest standards for ethics and behaviour.

I cooperate with and involve relevant parties, actively seeking their opinion and sharing key information with them. I support and trust others while encouraging feedback.

Taking the lead

I take ownership and prioritize my job according to DRC’s overall vision and goals. I take the initiative when confronted with a challenge or an opportunity and aim for innovative solutions.


I write and speak effectively and honestly while adjusting my style and tone to the situation. I listen actively to others and involve them in the dialogue.

Demonstrating integrity

I uphold and promote the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct in relation to DRC’s values and Code of Conduct, including safeguarding against sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment.
