Congratulations, graduates! As you enter the corporate world, remember that rehiring isn’t always the answer to career growth. By upskilling yourself, you open doors to new possibilities and prepare for the ever-changing workplace. About 87% of the graduates think they are well equipped for the workforce. As we all know, learning is a continuous process. We are in a continuous process of learning, and we discover the hard way that one needs to be constantly evolving, growing, and upskilling oneself to thrive in the corporate world.
Friends, what do you think can bring about the change?
To remain competitive in today’s markets, you need to regularly upskill. In almost every field throughout the globe, the assertion holds true. To maintain success, individuals and organizations must be able to adjust to new circumstances, thus it’s important to routinely evaluate their adaptability. One way to do this is by doing a skills gap analysis to identify development opportunities.
What are the recruiting managers’ thoughts on this?
Sadly, the vast majority of HR professionals would disagree. In reality, half of all employers do not believe recent graduates are ready for the workforce. Another survey indicated that the majority, i.e., 92 % of CEOs felt recent graduates are underskilled.
- 75 % of recruiting companies have seen a lack of qualified applicants.
- More than 20% of the employees will undergo retraining at the majority of the companies polled (46%).
- By the end of 2022, more than half of the workforce will need to acquire new skills (reskilling and upskilling)
These numbers show that many companies all around the world have an urgent need to retrain and improve the skills of their employees.
My dear friends, in a nutshell, this problem is referred to as the “Skill Gap.”
In case you have not heard the term “the skills gap” before, it refers to the discrepancy between what companies want in employees and what employees and job seekers really have.
Now when it comes to corporate – Do you think rehiring is the right choice?
Hiring a new employee is a time-consuming procedure that requires careful examination of each candidate’s experience, education, and potential. Whenever a company invests time and resources into onboarding and training a new employee, they are showing that they have a high opinion of that person as a potential asset to the company. Training an employee and making him suitable for the project requires a significant investment of time and resources.
Despite this, when they are introduced to a project, you may discover that they have no useful contributions to make. Therein lies the crux of your corporate failure. What, despite all the training, might have been the real issue?
How do you identify the skill gaps? How do you bridge those gaps?
You start rethinking about hiring a new employee, and then the process goes on and on like a vicious cycle. Isn’t it high time we started evaluating our approach to rehiring?
Many companies resort to training programs or hire a mentor in order to upskill their employees.
- Seminars and Workshops
- Internet-based instructional programs
- Learning through mentorship programs
- Forums or conferences
When the best option is already in your hands, why choose to rehire? Yes, upskilling can help you train, learn and execute.
To do this, we divide this approach into seven essential phases:
- Identifying the skills expected
- Current skill assessment
- Identifying the skill gaps
- Training and assessment
- Bridging the gaps
