Skill-gaps and the Benefits of Pre-employment Training Program

The core area where pre-employment works splendidly is in saving time and money investment that has to be invested anyway after onboarding the employees. With pre-employment training, you can be sure that when these trained employees eventually join your company, they can start working right from the first day, assimilated well into the organizational culture, having a hands-on experience of their work, tools, systems, and processes, and synchronized with the business perspectives, intelligence, and vision.

When an employee joins an organization, they are neither aligned with the skill sets and experience of their stipulated work nor aware of the organizational culture and business model. They have to be given leeway and time before they get along the speed and understanding of their tasks- there is always an escape velocity involved before they are free to operate on their own.  

Comparing that to a person who has joined after undergoing a pre-employment training program, these individuals are more prepared and confident about their work and responsibilities, they gel well in the organizational ecosystem and are more likely to succeed and perform better.

How to Go About a Pre-employment Training Program

These programs mustn't be plain vanilla courses, but each training program must be customized and oriented as per different needs of different individuals.

  • First, have an active engagement with the employees and assess their skill gaps in systems, procedures, and processes.

  • Have pre-assessment tests to test their level of skills and to know the inadequacies to finalize the execution framework of your training module

  • Tailor the needs of the test according to the skills that they need to learn in order to work in their roles optimally

  • A post-assessment test for the candidates to assess where they stand after learning and training has been delivered

After Onboarding:

After onboarding, cultural orientation is of the utmost importance to the employees as well as the organization. When new employees are accustomed to the organization’s way of working, acquainted with cross-department people who they need to deal with regularly for efficient working, and informed about product specifications- they can convert new learnings into greater performance and productivity.
