74. How Tata Steel Uses Skills Data For Learning and Workforce Planning (Interview with Joanne Kuipers)

In research we undertook last year at Insight222, to investigate the future of workforce planning, nearly all of companies surveyed (90%) expressed the desire to build a skills-based workforce planning process.

However, only a quarter of companies just 26% were actively doing so. One company that is successfully harnessing skills data to inform workforce planning and learning and to drive business outcomes such as safety compliance and productivity is Tata Steel. My guest on this week's episode of the podcast is Joanne Kuipers, manager at the Tata Steel academy based in the Netherlands.

In our conversation, Joanne and I discuss:

  • How Tata Steel visualises skills data and makes it actionable for managers
  • The key considerations in a build versus buy approach to closing skills gaps
  • The public private approach to up-skilling and re-skilling in the Netherlands
  • How companies should approach the measurement and utilisation of skills data

This episode is a must listen, for anyone interested or involved in operationalising skills data to support learning and consequently benefit the business and the workforce. So that is CHROs and anyone in a learning people, analytics, workforce planning, or HR business partner role.
