You’ve allocated ample resources for a training programme, included the most advanced learning strategies in the region and embarked on building a corporate culture which fiercely encourages learning and development.
But despite following all the rules, your L&D programme might still be incomplete when it comes to enhancing employee capabilities to better accomplish tasks and responsibilities.
This can only be done when training strategies are aligned with your existing talent’s strengths and weaknesses, so your employees are trained keeping those aptitudes in mind.
The first step towards this alignment is isolating the specific skill sets which will be in demand in the future, and analysing whether there is a gap in your existing and desired competencies.
“An organisational strategy and its processes are only as good as the capabilities of the people who deliver them,” Rashmi Sharma, senior vice president of human resources, and head of learning and development Singapore at Citigroup, says.
“We bet on people. It includes their competencies, behaviours, attitudes and mindset.”
At Employee Effectiveness 2014 on 18-18 June, Sharma will expand more on crafting appropriate and aligned learning programmes.
Hear her, along with other forward-thinking senior HR leaders, discuss the best ways to ensure talent is ready to take on your company’s biggest challenges.
Employee Effectiveness 2014 takes place on 18-19 June 2014 at PARKROYAL on Beach Road in Singapore.
