Skills Gaps: Strategies to Identify and Close Those Gaps
Is the fast-paced, ever-changing corporate world on the verge of a skills crisis? The challenge to bridge skills gaps in an organization is becoming increasingly difficult. It’s not uncommon to hear management and employees talking about skill gaps.
Basically, a skill gap is identified by an employer when it perceives an employee lacks certain skills which prevents the employee from being fully proficient in his or her job. The mismatch between the organization’s skills needs and the current capabilities of its workforce negatively impacts an organization. Skills gaps carry a huge risk for organizations which explains the urgency to identify and solve these issues as quickly as possible.
A skills gap analysis can benefit an organization by providing a critical overview of an organization’s workforce allowing managers to determine if their employees have the necessary skills to meet organizational objectives. If employees do not have the necessary skills, the organization can use a skills gap analysis to prioritize training resources so they are tailored to specific job roles as opposed to generic training that might not be of value to the entire workforce.
WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND:
It’s crucial to know where your employees lack skills to perform their jobs efficiently. Skills gaps can occur at an individual, departmental or organizational level. This negative impact of skills gaps can manifest in lowered customer satisfaction, lowered productivity and morale, and loss of revenue.
Participation in this webinar will provided participants with the necessary tools to identify skills gaps in their organizations and strategies to address those gaps.
