Why Is Upskilling Important, And Why Do We Do It?
The advancement in technologies and industries can be seen taking place at a fast pace. There exists a gap between the skills that the existing workforce has and the skills that have become absolutely necessary in today’s job market. Skills gap is one of the biggest obstacles in hiring talented individuals in any organization. Rapid development in fields like machine learning, artificial intelligence, robotics, and other related fields are happening really quickly. Hence, the nature and demand of jobs is to learn these new skills and use them to do the jobs more quickly and efficiently. We believe in upskilling all our employees, not just for ourselves, but for them as well so that they can move higher up the corporate ladder.
Different Ways In Which We Upskill Our Workforce
At DESTM, we make use of different ways to upskill your workforce. Depending on the need, sometimes we use just one, while many times, a combination of ways.
Designing Customized Learning And Development Plans
At DESTM, we believe that every employee in the workforce is different and so are his/her talents.
There may be some competencies and skills which they would like to acquire.
We put their interest first and help them acquire the skills which they are really interested in.
We empower and encourage employees to come up with the technologies and tools which they would really be interested in learning, and most importantly, something which resonates with them.
We believe in designing and developing personalized learning programs for each individual rather than telling them what they require to learn.
Job Specific Upskilling
DESTM offers job-specific upskilling programs for employees to improve their existing skill set.
For example, we have software in our organization that is only used by the accounts department or production department. However, with upskilling, team members from other departments can learn how to use the same.
At DESTM, offer upskilling programs to the employees from other departments as well who are really interested in learning more about how a particular software or framework functions and works.
There are several employees at DESTM who constitute a part of the global workforce.
They may not have the luxury of in-person or classroom training.
However, this does not mean that we overlook them.
We have employees working at various remote locations as well across the globe.
For this purpose, we have invested in virtual classrooms as well using which we impart training for different skills.
One of the biggest benefits of virtual training sessions is that the remote workforce can log in at a time convenient to them.
Thus, regardless of the geographical location, we invest in training each and every employee who is a part of the workforce, whether in India or Australia, or any other country located anywhere in the world.
We create short microlearning training programs as well, which are less than 30 minutes. A microlearning training session last for around 15-25 minutes. The main purpose behind creating microlearning training modules is to help the workforce learn smaller skills.
For example, if we are constantly getting feedback about decreasing customer satisfaction, we conduct microlearning programs for soft skills training. This training program would help the workforce to learn how to positively interact with customers. At the same time, they will also focus on how to show empathy towards customers. These microlearning programs are conducted during the business hours and get completed before an hour's time.
