helps in identifying the gaps, if any, between job demands and individual competencies.
Organizations can then intervene through effective training solutions for improving
organizational performance. The study aims to identify the competencies required of
employees in organized retail sector and identify gaps. Survey method was used to collect
data through a structured questionnaire. The study is descriptive in nature. Hypotheses were
tested. Radar Charts were constructed to identify the degree of competency gap of employee
