A skills audit is essentially a process for measuring and recording the skills of an individual or group. The main purpose for conducting a skills audit in a business is to identify the skills and knowledge that the business requires, as well as the skills and knowledge that they currently have.
Skills audits are also usually done to determine training needs so a business can improve its skills and knowledge. The outcome of the skills audit process is a skills gap analysis.
This information will enable the business to improve, by providing the appropriate training and development to individuals to cater for the identified skill gaps. The skills audit process will also provide information which can be used for purposes such as internal employee selection and to ensure that the correct person is deployed in each position.
