Finding Qualified Employees - A Growing Challenge


Are you finding it harder to find and recruit talented, qualified employees? If so, you are not alone. A recent study by i4cp (Institute for Corporate Productivity) found over 57 percent of managers surveyed are already experiencing talent shortages, and 82 percent believe it will present a major problem over the next decade. This is not surprising when you consider that according to U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics, more than a quarter of the current working U.S. population will reach retirement age by 2010.

If talent shortages are here to stay, how can HR professionals ensure their organization has the qualified personnel they need to continue to succeed in the marketplace? There are really only two choices: ramp-up recruitment efforts to hire the right talent or build a strong training program to develop people internally.

The most successful organizations will have the vision to invest in both options. And if you are using Sage Abra HRMS, you are ahead of the competition, as you already have the software technologies needed to support your efforts.

The Web-based Abra eRecruiter module is process-oriented and provides streamlined recruitment, whether managed by HR professionals or dedicated recruiters. The Abra Train module has all the tools you need to cost effectively run a training program, track certifications, and manage enrollment. Let’s learn more about these powerful Sage Abra modules.

Abra Train is designed to provide complete management of internal training, from prerequisites, enrollment and logistics, to employee certification, diplomas, and renewal dates. With Abra Train, you have the tools you need to build a robust training program to help move your loyal employees to the next level in the organization. Highlights of the Abra Train module include:

* Enrollment and Tracking: Schedule attendance, manage class rosters, check class capacities and course prerequisites, and automatically assign employees to job-based training requirements.

* Program Management: Define curricula that employees must complete in order to achieve desired levels of competency.
