Training and DevelopmentOrganizations today face increasing pressure to stay responsive to a global market-place by adapting to constant advancements and maintaining continuous improvement. If the skill sets of those within an organization do not match the organization’s skills needs, the result is a skills gap that can impact an organization’s goals and initiatives. Some of the indicators of a skills gap within an organization, in addition to a misalignment of skills the company has hired for and goals, include decreased productivity, increased errors, and a decline in innovation. A full analysis of skills with a needs based analysis can reveal the gaps in an organization and can be part of the process of addressing a skills gap and closing it, but what then?

How does training and development address the skills gap?

A training strategy that is aligned with your organizational needs is the most effective way to close a skills gap, get the most out of your investment in your work force, and keep your work force happy as you create self-sufficient and productive employees. Teaching new functional skill sets in the modern age means coupling training with convenient access to content with a blended model of training that addresses the needs of the modern learner with multiple mediums that include audio, visual, access to materials and support, assessment, tracking, and follow-up where needed. The employment of a good Learning Management System when possible in training delivery can help to keep everything in one place for easy project management. For more on that, click here.
