Often, when deciding to implement modern tools for human resource management, there are both positive and negative emotions. The positive ones most often speak of the need for company development, process optimization and support in the daily duties related to employees. The negative ones most often concern the fear of resistance to change.
These are just a few of the emotions associated with implementing new solutions in companies. What other challenges are facing the implementation of the Competence Matrices? Here are 3 main reasons!
1. Lack of developed skills
One of the main reasons why companies are not ready to implement the Competence Matrix is the lack of structured and structured skills. The knowledge about the activities performed during work remains in the minds of employees, which may make it difficult, for example, to optimal replacement search.
A consulting and training team may be helpful in developing skills, which will support the company and ensure that all skills are developed in accordance with a predetermined standard.
2. No evaluation policy
Another of the main reasons and resulting from the previous one is the lack of a developed or functioning evaluation policy, i.e. the lack of a developed evaluation scale for individual units, and thus – the lack of knowledge about the skills of employees.
It is worth ensuring a uniform scale of employee evaluation – this will create clear and transparent levels for employees and facilitate the planning of career paths!
3. Resistance to change
The resistance related to the arrival of changes is natural, therefore employees in the company are often afraid of introducing new tools at work. It may turn out to be a blocker when deciding to implement, among others Competency Matrix, as the questions arise: will lawyers use the tool? will they use its potential? will they not consider working with the tool as an additional obligation? Correct communication is the key! It is certainly worth noting the benefits of working with the tool.
Nevertheless, companies more and more often decide to implement tools that optimize their daily duties at work and support key processes in human resource management.
