Workplace Needs Assessment: Employee Training Needs Analysis [Video – 20:29] (2011)

This is the second in a series of four webinars prepared by the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF) to help companies establish Essential Skills (ES) training programs in the workplace. Here, the focus is on analysing ES needs in the workplace as a whole, and identifying training needs for individual employees and apprentices.

The narrator explains that a needs assessment doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated. The first step is to identify performance problems, while the second is to find out what skills are required for successful performance. The gaps between the skills needed and the skills on hand indicate where training programs might be needed.

That information can be found through observing employees at work or through interviews and surveys.

The webinar series is funded by the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills (OLES) of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC). The series builds on information found in "Taking Action: A Guide – Integrating Essential Skills Training into the Workplace." That document can be viewed by clicking here: http://www.hrsdc.gc.ca/eng/workplaceskills/LES/tools_resources/tools_audience/taking_action_guide.shtml.

The narrator takes the viewer through a variety of forms, surveys, and templates available on the HRSDC site.
