SCS Hiring Framework

Effective January 1, 2024, SCS will encourage all agencies to begin implementing competency-based hiring strategies. Positions required to take the Professional-Level Exam (PLE) and the Office Support Exam (OSE) prior to January 1, 2024, shall implement competencies, relevant examples of work, and supplemental questions.

SCS's goal is to modernize state hiring practices to ensure a solid foundation from which SCS and agencies can collaborate to maximize talent acquisition and workforce development in the State of Louisiana.

These research-based methods, not only help to certify candidates have what it takes to get the job done, but they also help agencies develop systematic, yet flexible hiring processes and procedures.
