Does your agency have employees who need to learn new skills in order to meet mission needs? If so, do you know what skills gaps exist at your agency and why?
It’s hard to figure out where to start, GovLoop and Cornerstone OnDemand put together this worksheet to help you and your agency develop an action plan for effectively filling its skills gaps. The worksheet is based on the Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) Reskilling Toolkit and on best practices from the public and private sectors for addressing skills gaps.
Times change, and agencies cannot predict when their employees will need new skills. Triggers such as new hiring mandates can leave agencies painfully aware of the abilities their workforces lack. The good news is many strategies exist for closing these skills gaps. Whether it is recruitment, reskilling or upskilling, agencies have multiple paths to mission success.
