What role an hr could play in driving multi-skilling project in a manufacturing firm?
what could be the real objectives (which can be measured) for a multi-skilling project? what are the real benefits which management can get from multi-skilling project? if someone pitches an argument that employee can perform another job but in real sense who will do his earlier job. even if two members exchange there jobs . how management will get benefited?
Multiskilling is beneficial to keep lean manpower in case any business is reduced then existing manpower can be shifted to handle other operational activity.
HR Role:
a. Keep Record of skillwise available manpower
b. Keep record Person wise skill availability
c. Advise management to plan training in case of any GAP with reference to availability
Multi skilling in any organization enhances it's capability and flexibility to deal with multiple situations, especially contingencies. Multi skilling is a part of an organization's succession plan, wherein employees are made competent enough to take up roles(Old or New) other than their primary roles.
As per my understanding multi-skilling can be helpful for MANAGEMENT for two purposes:-
1. contingency plan (Horizontal multi-skilling)
2. succession plan (vertical multi-skilling)
* and somewhere it can enhance employee engagement
so anyone can help me to find more purposes for which management should drive multi-skilling projects.
