How to Assess Training Needs
If you have an HR Department they can conduct a training needs assessment. If your staff is smaller, it could be a good idea to assess individuals’ current level of competence, skill or knowledge in one or more areas and also ask your staff how they feel about their work. Do they feel they have enough skills to perform at a professional level? Would they like to learn more or even learn a new skill that could benefit your company or organisation.
A training assessment is the first step to any successful training program. With our 20 plus years of experience the staff at Added Advantage will be happy to help you with your training assessments and make some recommendations.
In the space of the digital era, it has become a basic requirement for individuals, businesses and employees to have a basic understanding of computer programs. If you don’t have the necessary skills, you might want to consider enrolling yourself and team in specialised computer courses and computer training to reap the full benefit of how computer programs and software can work for you.
