According to the Society for Human Resource Management, “Employers that successfully attract and hire veterans in their workplaces find that veterans often outperform other employees and stay with the organization longer than the median length of service.”
Also known as a skills gap, the talent gap challenge exists in all organizations to some degree — and it can be perilous. Whether it’s efficiency, collaboration, cybersecurity, customer service or keeping your marketplace edge, you’re probably not seeing a complete picture of your company’s skills gap until it hits you with failed initiatives, or worse.
Despite the risks, many companies underestimate their talent gaps because they haven’t tackled a thorough skills gap analysis. Sharp Decisions can conduct an accurate skills gap analysis: First, clarifying your company’s strategic goals, then identifying the roles required and listing the skills needed for each role. They’ll also inventory your employees’ current skills and compare the results to the list of skills needed.
Once the severity of your talent gap is identified, it’s critical to take strategic action to resolve the problem. Sharp Decisions bridges talent gaps powerfully by delivering highly trained military veterans who bring top technical skills, experience, and dedication. Our V.E.T.S.TM Program allows us to partner for a customized plan in which we can identify the problems you are facing and combat them with trained, tech-savvy veterans.
The Great Resignation has intensified this problem in technical sectors as well as manufacturing, finance, construction, logistics and other industries. Meanwhile, surviving a volatile marketplace means your company needs to be agile. Project managers depend on informed and competent executives to provide skilled workers so they can deliver projects on time. With each iteration of the V.E.T.S.TM Program, clients receive hard-working veterans that know how to get the job done quickly, efficiently, and correctly.
