Skills Gap

What is Skills Gap?


‘Skills Gap’ refers to the gaps in the skills expected by the company for a position and the skills the employee occupying that position actually possesses. There are several factors that contribute to the skills gap including poor recruitment practice, lack of technical knowledge or soft skills, etc.


Skills gap adversely affects the companies and hence, they conduct skills gap analysis regularly to identify and tackle this issue. Doing so ensures that the employees are well trained to perform their daily tasks effectively and efficiently.


Skills gap analysis can also benefit an organization as it will be able to identify the employee pain points and provide better training, or upgrade the technologies and even recruit more skilled staff in future for the same position.
