No matter the industry sector, a business’s greatest resource is its talent. By following simple actions, you can maximise the full potential of your workforce and boost the competitiveness of your business.
- Have a clear understanding of your company goals
Business goals are an essential part of establishing priorities and setting your company up for success. Taking the time to set goals for your business and create individual objectives to help you reach each goal can greatly increase your ability to achieve those goals.
- Complete a Training Needs Analysis
Conducting a needs analysis can eliminate waste from the training process, so you can save time and money. A needs analysis helps identify individual and team skills gaps, allowing you to source training that focuses on exactly what’s needed to improve performance.
Key questions to ask when completing a needs analysis:
- What needs to change in your company to meet your business goals?
- What skills do your staff need?
- What skills do your staff currently have?
- What knowledge gaps exist within your team?
- What training will help you close these training gaps?
- Contact County Wexford Chamber Skillnet
Working closely with the Network Manager, we can help you address the gaps that exist by:
- Helping you conduct the Training Needs Analysis if required
- Helping you develop your training plan for the year
- Sourcing experienced and qualified trainers to deliver relevant high-quality programmes to meet your needs
- Organising the training to suit your schedule
- Completing evaluation post training to ensure needs of training were met
- Implement and Review
Now that your employees have the necessary tools and skills to do their jobs more effectively, it is your role to ensure that the new learning is implemented into the specific roles. In some cases, new procedures and processes may need to be developed for this implementation to occur. It is important to review the impact at regular intervals to make sure that the training completed is effective. Receiving regular employee feedback can give you a good idea if it is working as it should. For job specific training, monitoring productivity before and after training, whether that is through improved sales targets or increased production, can also be another way of measuring efficacy.
