Close Your Workplace Skills Gaps NOW!

 In HR and Management Tips

Skills gaps can be detrimental to a company. When your teams don’t have the right mix of skills, productivity is hindered, and you can’t make the most of the tools, platforms, or technologies that are available.

Competition for top talent is fierce, particularly with candidates that have in-demand skills that aren’t easily found. Luckily, there are approaches that can help you close skill gaps efficiently, even in a competitive hiring landscape.

By upskilling your workforce, you can close skill gaps quickly and efficiently. If you want to make the most of your training program, here’s what you need to know.

Take a Deep Dive into the Data

You can’t close a skill gap if you don’t know it exists. Before you implement any new training initiatives, you need to examine your employee data.

Start by exploring job descriptions. This allows you to understand what skills are necessary to excel in the role, creating a point of comparison against the employee’s skill level. See what skills are currently present and identify those that are either missing or underdeveloped. On the team level, you can also consider which skills may be underrepresented.

Once you have this information, you can prioritize your training efforts. Determine which skills represent the most significant ROI. The goal is to identify skills that can be put to use immediately and result in a substantial gain. That way, you can focus your training investment in the best area possible.
