Customized Training Solutions – Teaching the Skills Your Workforce Needs
When reading a resume or a job application, it’s tough to figure out what skills people actually possess. Applicants and are trying to put their best foot forward to land the job. Often, people will indicate that they have a particular skill thinking they will simply learn it on the job.
How do you get an accurate picture of what skills people actually bring to the table? How do you develop training when you are unsure of actual proficiency? You may be training employees in areas they are already well-versed in, but missing training opportunities where your employees could use it the most.
Let’s face it – skills training is definitely not one-size-fits-all. In a room with 10 employees, you will likely have 10 different skillsets. What if you could hand-tailor a training program to the individual needs of workers based on their knowledge?
Smart Skills Assessment
Fortunately, there is a high-tech solution to this high-tech problem: smart skills assessments offered by Iowa Valley Continuing Education. This assessment allows manufacturers to assess the skill sets of individual workers in specific areas. Manufacturers who use this assessment can direct workers to the specific types of training they need. Based on each individual worker’s skill gaps, targeted training can be accelerated because it focuses on only the skills needed, resulting in less time away from the job.
