What's needed is a way to address what's lacking in skills and abilities while helping your employees to excel.

So how do you strategize? First, HR must take a look at where the skills gaps are, and then decide how to implement training and development to improve skills. By evaluating the skills gaps, you identify what is necessary to meet the organization's goals. Making this analysis will establish what you are looking for in training and development, as well as for future hiring.

Skills evaluations can be done on individuals and/or on the team or company as a whole. Whether a skills evaluation is needed may depend on a few things, such as when different duties in a job mandate learning new skills, or when poor performance is having a negative effect on production. Also, 21st century skills are constantly adapting as technology develops that can help the organization, or when it becomes a necessity.
