Employers Need To Use The Talents Of Their Workforce

17th April 2009

A great way to weather the storm of this financial recession is to look at the skills present within your existing workforce.  Have you looked at the CV’s of your staff recently? Have they got skills that you have overlooked or could be transferred to other areas of your business?

 

Companies should look at staff skills to try to stop any unnecessary redundancies.   Rather than having to end someone’s employment, firms should think about asking employees  if they could help out other areas of the company to the best of their skill set. This can help to create an interchangeable and flexibility workforce. 

One member of staff could therefore be accomplished in several areas and help an employer achieve a multi skilled workforce.If you have recently found yourself out of work or have been made redundant, then by maximising the most of your skills, by applying for job positions via recruitment agencies and fixed fee recruitment services will help your chances of finding employment.
