Digital training management is more important than ever after the crisis

Following easing of the coronavirus lockdown, HR processes are getting up and running properly again, as the much cited shortage of skilled employees has not simply gone away. Digitisation with appropriate HR software is becoming ever more important for recruitment and talent management.

According to a study by the Manpower Group, from 2019 to January 2020 the worldwide “talent shortage” reached an all-time high of 54 percent among the companies surveyed – ten years earlier, this figure was still at 30 percent. Countries such as Germany, the UK and the USA reported the lowest unemployment figures for decades. But then the full force of the current crisis hit and turned everything on its head. In mid-March, the job machine suddenly stalled and soon collapsed completely.

Ready for the job machine to start up again

But the thaw surrounding the most talented people in business and industry has now set in. Companies that have optimised and slimmed down their recruitment processes using HR software, including their job advertisements, onboarding, skill and talent management are in the best position. This also applies to training management in the field of support for apprentices.

Because even if short-time working is still the name of the game in many places in the current situation and unemployment figures are rising, applicants are used to not having to wait long for the recruitment process to start. Many applicants are now digital natives and are confident in their use of online application tools and communication assistants such as chatbots.

Digitisation instead of post and email correspondence

For initial contact in active sourcing or responding to applications, email might still be a good choice. But HR professionals should then avoid endless email chains and instead digitise all their processes to standardise them, as potential candidates can then also be attracted via social networks. In general, social media recruitment is increasing in importance, especially since the vast majority of candidates already have a profile on the most important career networks – not to mention accounts with Facebook, Twitter and the like. All these channels can also be used for direct contact.

Training management is getting more important

Although the COVID 19 pandemic temporarily put many activities on ice, it is now evident that training management for employees and apprentices is becoming more significant. You only need to consider the schooling that potential apprenticeship candidates have missed out on by mid-June since the schools and colleges were closed, which is a good three months ago.

Companies’ demands in terms of the qualifications of those starting work remains high, will grow with increasing normalisation of the economy, and may even be more severe than before the crisis. Many young people now entering the training market have certain shortfalls in their learning because of the school closures, which companies will now have to make up for.

An organisational chart shows which skills or learning objectives are to be achieved in which period and to what extent. Established matching algorithms compare the learning objectives of the trainees with the requirements of the training organisations. Trainers thus receive largely automated planning suggestions with a definable level of detail for their apprentices.Learning progress is also displayed automatically but can be adjusted manually according to the objectives of the learning group. In addition, rexx systems offers digital training management for more effective training of apprentices.

Digitisation using HR software with various recruitment tools, such as those for skills and training management, offers a series of advantages. These include not only the optimisation of processes, which is associated with a significant cost saving. More important for many HR managers is the fact that they are relieved of many administrative and often banal tasks and have more time for important matters: for active recruiting, HR development and talent management within the existing workforce.
