The Frontline employees (popularly called as the Knowledge Workers) are a company’s greatest intangible asset that keeps the wheels of commerce turning, running as they are the face of the company who deal directly with the customers. Frontline Workforce performance can hamper the goals of the organization.
Every industry is challenged by the digital transformation/evolution/disruption that’s triggered changes in customer behavior. Most knowledge workers lack the necessary skills to address the evolving and ever-changing market and customer demands.
Skill gaps are bound to lead to an increased risk in a digitally advanced world. The rapid advancement in technologies, such as AI, and cloud computing is changing the way of work all around the world and widening the existing skill gaps. The Frontline workers need continuous skilling opportunities in the form of Upskilling or Reskilling through on-the-job training to respond to challenges posed by digital transformation.
Knowledge workers need the apt set of skills to stay productive and innovate at work and hence it is imperative to develop the right skills.
To address the widening skill gaps and prepare knowledge workers to win in the digital-first world, here are a few best practices:
a) Skill Identification:
While upskilling the frontline workforce, finding the right skills for success is crucial. Each role in the organization needs a different set of skills.
Define skills for each role in the organization. Modern technologies can be put into use to map skills.
Identify and benchmark existing skill sets against industry standards through role-based skilling methodology. One can then determine and define functional, leadership, digital, and meta-skills for different roles, so as to have a deeper understanding.
b) Skill Assessment:
It is very important to determine each employee’s skill’s proficiency level by finding the skill score and hence there is an explicit need to find out if the knowledge workers have the required/essential skills for performing the job efficiently.
c) Skill Development:
Based on the learners’ interest and proficiency level for each existing/identified skill, curate necessary resources and build a content repository to create a meaningful skilling journey.
Having the essential aspects is crucial but using them in the right way is critical.
d) Personalized Learning:
Interest-based learning experiences motivate employees to learn more and expand their capabilities for increased performance. Moreover, AI-powered recommendations save them from the hassle of finding resources to enhance their skill set for moving to the next role.
Skills are changing at a fast pace with new technological advancements in different industries. The widening skill gaps of knowledge workers need real-time attention to ensure breakthrough performance in any circumstances, at all times.
