The Right Training to Fill Your Team’s Skill Gaps

Have you experienced issues with skills gaps in your workforce?

There could be a multitude of reasons for these gaps – the exodus of people from organizations, job and industry changes, increased remote work, or digitalization that has moved faster than people are able to keep up. Regardless of the reason, if left unaddressed, these gaps can damage your culture and organization.

Luckily there are effective strategies that are relatively easy to implement in your existing workforce. Upskilling and reskilling your people can equip them with the tools to succeed in their roles. In addition, the right training, including facilitated learning experiences such as DiSC, can make an enormous impact in leveling the play field and empowering your people to work together.

One of the smarter investments you can make is the development of interpersonal skills. In a recent Everything DiSC survey, participants were asked what skills they thought were the most important in their particular organization, and interpersonal skills emerged as the winner with 36% reporting that was the most important skill. While there is definitely a need for improved hard skills, as well as technical skills which can vary greatly by industry, day-to-day team dynamics depend greatly on their ability to connect and work together effectively.

Hiring presents an additional opportunity to ensure your teams have what they need to succeed. As long as you are willing and able to invest in the right training, you can encourage your people to make lateral moves across the organization or tackle projects outside their scope of work but which they may have more experience and interest in.

There are a myriad of ways to fill the gaps in your organization and level-up your workforce at the same time. Reach out to us to get started: MDR: DiSC Solutions
