Skills Auditing

A skills audit is a process for identifying employee skills and comparing them with required by organisation requirements now and in the future so that the skills shortfall or surplus can be determined and addressed accordingly. The main purpose for conducting a skills audit in an organisation is to identify the skills and knowledge that the organisation requires, as well as the skills and knowledge that the organisation currently has.



 

Skills audits are also usually done to determine training needs so that an organisation can improve its skills and knowledge. The outcome of the skills audit exercise is a skills gap analysis. This information will enable the organisation to improve by providing the appropriate training and development to individuals to cater for the identified skill gaps. If skills audit is done for the right reasons and done following skills audit best practices, it should benefit the organisation in enhancing the value of human capital through identifying the existing skills gap and develop interventions to address the gaps.
