The purpose of this paper is to identify the most important indicators adopted in the Competences management (CM) and the integration into the knowledge economy (KE). In addition, the study attempted to test three hypotheses in NAFTAL unit of BATNA, namely whether there is a correlation between CM and the integration into the KE, and the impact of CM on the integration in the KE, and to identify the differences between respondents according to demographic variables in the relationship between the study variables. The study is based on a descriptive approach to cover the theoretical side. The practical side is relied on the use of the analysis method by using the statistical analysis methods to test the hypotheses. Preliminary data are collected from a sample of 50 from 356 employees in NAFTAL Company, 47 of them responded to the questionnaire, the study tool. Data processing is done based on the SPSS; own data processing in social science, and using frequencies, percentages, Pearson correlation coefficient, One way ANOVA, and simple linear regression. The main results show that NAFTAL do not tend to integrate into the KE, based on the absence of statistically significant correlation between the dimensions of CM and the dimensions of the integration in the KE. The study also shows the lack of effect of CM dimensions in the integration of the organization in the KE, and also proves that there is no statistically significant difference between the respondents to the integration of the organization in the KE by income: age, employment, level of education. However, there are statistically significant differences to the integration of the organization in the KE based on experience.
