The Skill Gap Analysis

Human Resources is indeed a crucial aspect to the growth and expansion of any organisation. Skilled workforce has the ability to take the organisation to new horizons of success. However, sometimes the organisation, due to a plethora of reasons, is not able to deliver to the best of its capabilities. In short, this means that the performance of an organisation is not able to meet its potential or complete the targets on the deadline. One of the reasons for the same could be a Skill Gap among the employees. Skill Gap, in different organisations, may appear in different forms, depending on the sector the organisation is catering to.

Benefits/Importance of Skill Gap Analysis

Through the use of Skill Gap Analysis, organisations assess the actual Gap or Difference between the current productivity and the potential based on set future goals. This analysis helps an organisation understand and identify the skills that an employee needs in order to carry out a certain set of tasks; however, he/she does not have that skill. Additionally, through Skill Gap Analysis, the organisation gets an insight into their entire workforce which eventually assists them to identify which employees have the most knowledge of particular aspects alongside giving the idea about employees that have skill gaps. Post identifying the skill gap, organisations will be able to work on their strategy and provide better training resources to those employees that lack those skills. This will lead to efficient use of resources in terms of overall performance of the team.

One of the major benefits of Skill Gap Analysis is that it helps organisations to hire talented and skilled individuals post identifying those candidates whose skills better match those needed to function effectively in a particular role.

Competency Management and Skill gaps analysis brings more ROIs to the organisation by taking the analysed approach towards the required and effective training of their workforce.
