Understanding your organisational skills needs

Successful companies are those who embrace change through technology, process efficiency and a sufficiently skilled, focused and agile workforce.

Here at the Semta Group we are always seeking ways to support business growth, improve productivity and develop long lasting skills solutions. With this in mind, we are pleased to launch our Organisational Needs Analysis tool.

What is the Organisational Needs Analysis tool?EAL ONA Graphics-v1A

The Semta Group Organisational Needs Analysis (ONA) platform is a free, quick and easy to use solution to help your business to develop a strategic skills plan. By using this tool you're taking the first step towards a more skilled, more prosperous future for your workplace.

Using the tool is intuitive. It reviews key aspects of the business and provides a summary of results, which can inform the development of a tailored strategic skills plan. There are two ways you can use this assessment:

  1. Company-wide survey - For a more comprehensive report, you can request a company survey link that will allow members of your wider team to provide input as well. Not only will you be able to access your individual summary, but the company will be able to access a collated report that shows responses from across the organisation.

    This is recommended for the majority of businesses. 

  2. Individual survey on behalf of the organisation - This approach allows you to complete the survey on behalf of your organisation. By selecting this option you will be taken directly to the survey. At the end of the survey, you will be sent a link to a report that summarises the results.

So don't delay – it will only take five minutes, but could change your workplace's future. Don't let your organisation be left behind by the rise of new technologies like artificial intelligence and automation – use our system now and start future-proofing your skills today!

Why should I complete it?

Research has shown that employers who carry out a training needs analysis are less likely to have skills gaps in their workforces. They can also enjoy a 24% higher profit margin* than workplaces which don't invest enough in training.

What happens next?

Once you have completed the survey you will receive a personalised report that summarises your results. If required, one of our skills experts can then work with you to develop a tailored strategic plan to address any identified skills gaps and shortages. This may include a range of solutions, for example:

  • Apprenticeships
  • Upskilling
  • Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
  • Other training methods

What are the benefits to my business?

Our experts are on hand to work with you to find and implement the right solutions to meet your skills needs. We're already seeing great results – employers we work with are seeing immediate benefits such as:

  • Improved productivity
  • Efficiency savings
  • Reduced training costs
