Workforce Development

 

Workforce development is a concept that integrates workforce analytics and careful planning, human resource management and ability development to strengthen business success by aligning the workforce to both current and future service delivery demands and business skill requirements.

 

Workforce development requires a focus on the customer and making whole systems adjustments to accommodate customers needs.  From a systems perspective, it could include business analytics, policies, job specifications, recruitment trends, talent acquisition, talent retention, separation of talent, as well as resources, support mechanisms, ability development and performance based incentives.

 

Most businesses are not aware of what workforce development actually means, what it includes, who it involves, why it is important and how it varies to the traditional vocational education and training systems.  Many still have a limited view of workforce development, seeing it as:

 

  • Identifying and filling current and future jobs in the business or
  • Professional development - the training and development of individual staff members or
  • Vocational/technical education and meeting skills shortages.

 

This lack of focus on the policies and practices needed to support the whole system has resulted in ad hoc approaches that have not been integrated across businesses and therefore are not sustainable.

 

Workforce development is involving the vocational education and training systems and working closely with individual businesses, clusters of businesses and other partners, to:

 

  • Facilitate the adoption of high performance practices and training programs
  • Pursue value-add and innovation inclined products and service strategies
  • Develop new connections and methods to employee relations and career development
  • Integrate on-the-job skills development with mutually beneficial policies and strategies in relation to business investment, the adoption of new technology, changes to product markets, work organisation, job design and wage structures.

 

Skills Plans & Training Plans

 

Training is a vital part of a business.  Staying up to date with current trends and skill sets in the markets is crucial to staying ahead of the pack. Your competitors may be one step ahead of you and that's the last place you want to be.

 

Training your existing workforce is critical in todays world where the basic education systems are no longer enough.

 

As hundreds of thousands of youth enter the workforce annually it's important to ensure those within your business are equipped properly to perform the tasks required for business success.

Basic Skills Development
