Employee Upskilling and Reskilling for Agile Business Development

When your business changes, your workforce has to change too… but this doesn’t mean shouldering the costs of redundancy and recruitment.

If you have employees who want to stay with your organisation and have a good work ethic, it can cost much less to upskill or reskill them than it costs to recruit new staff, and it can also fulfil their personal career development and training aspirations.

Examples of retraining or upskilling for business change

Moving from a manual to an office-based role: If you wanted to move somebody from a manual role to an administration-based role, they might need to complete Microsoft Word, Office and Outlook (2007, 2010 and 2013 available) courses.

Moving from customer services to online marketing: People-orientated individuals tend to be effective business communicators and, providing their writing skills are good enough, may suit various online marketing roles. In these cases, we run graphic web design courses, along with courses on SEO for business, courses on Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and blogging for business courses, along with training on social media strategies.

Moving from a member of an admin team to a Personal Assistant: Few people know that there are plenty of onsite PA training courses available for admin-based career development. In smaller organisations, information technology and social media strategies courses are also included in this type of career development plan, further increasing the value of the role of PA.

Returning to work after a career break: If an individual has taken a career break and hasn’t worked in an office environment for a few years, we offer touch typing refresher courses, coupled with Microsoft Word, Office and Outlook (2007, 2010 and 2013 available) training.
