Almost every large company in the world works with it, and yet you rarely find it in SMEs: skill management. Through skill management you get a grip on the skills and developments of all your individual staff members, and with that also your workforce in general. It brings countless benefits; all the more reason to start working with it as an SME today rather than tomorrow.
Skills and development
What is skill management? Complete mapping of the knowledge and skills present in your workforce. Especially within companies where many different activities are performed - for example, a mix of marketing, development, production, logistics, etc. - it is invaluable to have a good grip on all the skills that are present in your company.
Tool: skills management software
Because you are probably busy enough with running your company and have little time left to set up a skills management system, it is advisable to have ready-made skills management software to use. When it comes to personnel policy and the development of your people, you shouldn't take a gamble and opt for a solution that has proven its value in the past. Skills management software such as AG5 offering makes management itself a lot easier and minimizes the chance of errors or ambiguities.
In such a system you can reconstruct the organization chart of your company, to ensure that the system fits perfectly with daily practice. In addition to the development of your staff and hiring new employees, a well-kept system can also perfectly support you in finding employees who can take over the duties of a (temporary) absent employee, for example on sick leave or vacation leave. Skill management therefore not only helps you in the long term, but certainly also in the short term.
