Proper skills management systems could help companies prevent IT talent shortage

Tensor Workforce Management System

Smart skills management systems can help firms tackle the “extensive” shortage of IT talent that’s hampering productivity for 45% of UK businesses, according to figures released by the IT skills and training body CompTIA.

As part of their International Technology Adoption and Workforce Trends Study, which surveyed more than 1,500 IT executives, the organization found that 44% of respondents worry staff productivity is being negatively affected by digital skills gaps, while almost a third (30%) said insufficient skills are impacting on customer services.

To fill these skills gaps, 28% of IT professionals said they plan to hire more IT staff this year, up from 14% in 2014.

CompTIA UK director for member communities Estelle Johannes added: “The impact of the skills gap threatens the livelihood of businesses across the country, from information security to customer service, and more needs to be done to tackle this growing problem. But building and managing talent requires a concerted effort, resources and time. There is rarely a quick fix to addressing skills gaps.”

Tensor Time and Attendance Systems enable better skills management and performance monitoring

Beside checking attendance and worked times, the Tensor WinTA Time and Attendance suite also includes a dedicated HR module. Tensor Personnel allows you to record a vast amount of personal information about your company staff, including here basic details, course attendance, educational history, language skills, professional institute memberships, skills, etc.

Moreover, WinTA.NET supplies the relevant managers with information on employee’s absences through warning email notifications or via hardcopy reports. After that, the intelligent employee management system would rapidly identify missing employees that are expected to be at work and then informs you via automatic email reporting reports distributed by email.
