Every client has different requirements and it keeps varying from time to time. Skill Gap Analysis for the above mentioned client was done with an objective to analyze the necessary skills of the employees, design a training calendar, conduct annual appraisals and to create a skill inventory for future. The skills were analyzed by identification and distribution of skills into four broad categories such as Functional/ Technical Skills, Operational Excellence Skills, Behavioral & Soft Skills. After the required skills identification, a customized questionnaire for all skills and positions covering all departments was prepared. The questionnaire was rolled out to all the participants through online platform which further helped to receive and analyze the data to analyze the skill gaps.
This comprehensive analysis was conducted for more than 120 participants over 10 departments and 12 cadres. All members from the leadership, tactical and execution layers were covered and the tool helped to generate individual as well as consolidated team insights.
