“Competencies” is another word for ‘skills and abilities’, and usually also involves personal attributes (e.g. good with people). Those that are absolutely needed for success are called ‘critical competencies’. Competencies, especially critical ones, must be included in a job description and be a point of focus in interviews, training, promotions and development.
