@Lucille I agree with your statement. Keeping members engaged and motivated can be challenging, especially with the anxiety of life constantly present. In my experience supporting the development of career pathway systems, have seen more successes than challenges. Once the member pushes through and gets out of their own way, the engagement and motivation shines brighter. Also, healthy coping skills are learned and applied to address the anxieties that once dimmed their light and the professional and personal growth becomes evident to everyone including the member/participant.
Job analysis can be most effectively applied in our region by reviewing and gaining clear insight on the most comprehensive way to understand specific “can do” and “will do” attitudes of members, but it can also be used to give insight on employer needs.
It's not what you say but how you say it. So, providing an open and clear forum of communication, (digitally or written) to express the benefits of job analysis reports, labor market information, or LMI, to key stakeholders opens the door to dialogue and allows for questions and concerns to be addressed.. It's important to know the facts and own the metrics presented.
Having a plan is key and any effective plan starts with reviewing analysis reports. These reports continue to assist in designing that plan for me, my clients, and team members. Such reports continue to refine me as a professional, so I can assist myself, my clients and team members to identify professional strengths and deficiencies.
Data can be used to investigate talent needs by using the data to design or redesign hiring strategies and processes. Also, keeping track of important KPI's and identify the deficiencies and address immediately.
