Is your IT workforce ready and capable to meet your needs today, and tomorrow?
Whether you are in HR, Procurement, Marketing, or Executive Management; you want IT to deliver on time, within budget, and as per expectations. To achieve this, there is an ongoing exercise to optimize technology, processes, and people. Organizations have done stellar work in first two areas by gaining visibility, measuring ROI and TCO, and identify areas of improvement. However, when it comes to "People" i.e. IT workforce, we are struggling. Why? What you dont know enough about cannot be measured and, what you cannot measure cannot be improved!
When it comes to your IT workforce:
- Do you know which roles are Strategic and/or Critical?
- What is the make of your each IT worker i.e. Skills, Competency, and Engagement?
- Do they have a well defined job description that is current? Is the work variety they handle in a given day matches their documented job description?
- Do you have a clear idea about their workload? Is that measured or measurable?
- Can you assess accurately if your current IT workers (internet and external) are adequate in quantity, quantity, and alignment to meet your today and tomorrow's expectations?
- Are your sourcing processes while cost effective, effective? Are they ensuring that at the end right candidate is invited into the organization timely for each need and compensated appropriate to maintain required motivation and engagement levels?
- Are your HR programs adequate in nurturing IT workers assuming strategic and critical roles?
- If your business changes, and you have to unfortunately indulge in Reduction in Force, do you know who to let go?
- Are the outplaced IT workers truly being helped by the traditional firms who may know HR but not IT?
If the answer to any of the above is "No" or "not sure", and you haven't done or are not able to do anything about it, the tradeoffs are huge.
