With the competition for example. Yes, we are talking about skilled or senior people in your company. How do you prevent them from burning out, getting caught in a rut, or, god forbid, running off, and turn them into super-employees?
Time speeding by, fast goals, quick changes wherever you look. But people stay the same. When they don't feel good at work, their performance deteriorates and eventually they leave. Then there's the second extreme. At a time of record low unemployment companies are fighting over employees, who they cannot find. So where is all this talent going? What if it's in front of your eyes the whole time?
Just because someone has held a position for a long time certainly does not mean that you cannot offer them a new environment, teach them a new role or possibly expand their current competencies and thus give their career a fresh charge. You have reskilling to hand. In short, it is a process of acquiring new skills or preparing for a new role. It often aims to allow an employee to move to a new type of job or to another department. And what will that bring you?
Soif you've already had ads on your job portal for a while now and you still haven't found the right candidate, take a good look around the company to see if you're overlooking someone who could just use a little well-aimed training and become a new ace. There's a good chance that's the case. But how do you recognize such an employee?
This means that he may well be an older employee who would be completely damned at first glance by the implacable view of online engines. Such a person can represent unrealised potential. That is, if you have the right educational strategy and know how to work with your people.
After reading the previous list, you may slowly be picturing someone who fits this profile in your mind. Don't let those thoughts just stay in your head but put pen to paper. Write down the names of potential colleagues and create practical character cards where you will try to model a bright future for them in a new position. Then invite them for a short 1:1 to see if your ideas coincide with their own pictures of themselves.
If you are looking for an immediate solution without putting in any work, you won't be much pleased. Education is complex in any case. But the positive thing is that educating a person who already has more experience with your products and corporate culture is a little better. And because they know you, you can skip the courting phase of plodding through the corporate-cultural jungle with only notional training ideas.
Remember that without a sound foundation of corporate culture and without proper communication across the company, you will not be able to promote even the best idea.
Reskilling is a powerful tool that will bring you many benefits. However, in order to complete the whole process correctly and take advantage of modern technology, in the next parat we have prepared a guide for you on how to set up e-learning properly so that it serves not only reskilling, but also continuous education in your organization.
