Why everything will be based on skills

Everything is changing.

Are you?

The future of work is happening now and the need for professional services teams to embrace new strategies is dire. As a leader, you are responsible for driving your organization’s success by fostering a culture of innovation, agility, and creativity. To do this, you must be prepared to face the challenges that come with the rapidly-evolving workplace and develop solutions that will help equip your employees with the skills they need to succeed.

This is no small feat. According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), over 50% of people across industries will require retraining and upskilling in order to keep up with changing trends in their fields by 2025. Achieving this goal requires strategic thinking from your HR team on how to upskill or reskill your workforce.

To truly stay competitive and prepared for the future, businesses need to look at developing their existing team.

Investing in your employees can ensure they are always up-to-date with the latest trends and technology – preparing them for whatever the future throws at them. Training and development opportunities empower your employees to take ownership over their own growth and skillset, ensuring that they remain engaged, motivated and productive throughout their careers. 

Not only does this encourage loyalty within your organization, but it ensures that you have an agile workforce equipped with the skills needed to adapt quickly to changes in technology or customer demands. Not only will this result in a stronger bottom line for your business, but it will also build a culture of innovation, creativity, learning and development

So here’s the checklist:

  1. Map your workforces skills based on job roles and project demand
  2. Define levels of skills for your specific business
  3. Attach skills and skill levels to your portfolio services 
  4. Start matching projects to skills and THEN to people not the other way around
