Training Needs Analysis
Training needs analysis, again one of those jargon phrases that send fear through most people, but once the jargon is removed, it becomes a useful tool to understand the skills needs within your business.  

A training needs analysis is simply put, gathering information from employees which will help an employer to better understand the staff’s educational and professional background, identifying training needs that might exist within the business, and the future aspirations of the employees. 
Let’s dissect the three areas a bit more

The Educational and Professional background of an Employee:
This information would assist Business to understand what skills and knowledge is needed within a designation as a minimum requirement for employment.   

Training needs within the business:
Having employees participate on a training needs analysis will assist with the understanding of what skills are still needed within your company and within each department to ensure that all staff are fully qualified to perform their respective job tasks. This is a fantastic way to ensure your skills development plan (ATR and WSP) is aligned and makes business sense.

The Future Aspirations of Employees:
This might seem like an unlikely thing to want to know about your employees but it has the potential to transform your business.

Let’s say Lebogang works as an administrative assistant within your business, she is a very efficient employee and has always performed well, not somebody you would want to lose to a competitor right? Well Lebogang has ambitions to become a bookkeeper and by upskilling Lebogang you will not only retain her as an asset to your business but it will also assist you with the planning of skills development and succession planning within your company.
