Abstract: The modern world is constantly changing and the changes influence various aspects of functioning of enterprises. The effects of those changes are visible not only in the manner of functioning of organisations, but also their competition on the market, their internal structure and the manner of establishing cooperation with stakeholders. Constantly increasing technological complexity of modern manufacturing systems requires the employees to be engaged in multiple disciplines, which implies the need of diffusion of information and knowledge, implementation of new innovative solutions in the scope of technology enabling their utilisation as well as constant professional development of employees. Through implementation of innovative activities an enterprise may achieve competitive advantage, the stability of which is possible thanks to possession of internal, knowledge-based resources, known as the competence of the organisation, with particular emphasis placed on importance of key competences. The improvement of competences of the organisation is connected with constant development of its employees. The paper presents the results of empirical studies performed in order to identify the impact of employee development on the level of organizational competencies surveyed innovative enterprises. The studies were carried out in 281 enterprises, including in Poland, Thailand, Ukraine, U.S. and Austria, with the use of a specially developed questionnaire. Finally, the paper presents some recommendations for managers, concerning the directions of changes that should be made in the approaches to development of organizational competencies.
