AVVAL provides targeted solutions and services to enable an organization get the most out of IT workforce, one of the most valuable and expensive resource.
AVVAL's Definition Services define your IT workforce so your organization can get the most out it. Why is workforce definition a problem? …Because many IT organizations view an IT worker as a blackbox. Meanwhile the true potential of the individual resource is unknown and undefined.
Some of the parameters about an IT resource that go undefined include:
- What additional skills does an individual have, and what are his or her competency levels in those skills?
- What is the individual’s engagement level for the tasks being performed?
- What common tasks are assigned as part of their predefined role, OR on adhoc basis?
- What is the workload of a given IT worker?
- Is the workload equitably shared among all IT workers?
- Which IT workers are crucial to delivering business value? Are these individuals being nurtured and retained?
With a well defined workforce, tasks can be better apportioned among all workers, resulting in better work performance, greater worker satisfaction and retention, and overall cost control.
AVVAL’s Definition services will allow you to better understand the workforce you have, so you can better optimize your use of it.
Today, the recruitment at most organizations faces common bottlenecks that prevent the timely recruitment of needed IT talent due to problems such as:
- Inaccurate job descriptions for the talent sought with respect to “most desired” skills, expectations, responsibility, and accountability
- Offered compensation that does not match current market conditions or the market situation for particular technology skills
- The inability of HR or recruiters who are technologists, to know enough about what type IT resource is needed
- Too long of a turnaround time to find the IT resources needed and an inability to find both mainstream and niche IT talent
Bottom line, AVVAL’s Acquisition Services will streamline your IT recruitment processes so that projects start on time, with the right IT resources with the right skill sets and experience level, and most importantly, at the anticipated cost for proper budget control.
Today, job duration is certain, especially for workers in IT. In order to maintain morale and community goodwill, organizations are expected to provide outplacement support. Many offer services that are inadequate.
Some of the challenges are:
- With what can often be a poorly defined IT workforce, organizations face a difficult task in correctly identifying exactly who and how many individuals should properly be transitioned out.
- The problem of how to effectively transfer important knowledge from transitioned IT workers to retained workers
- Transition should be an opportunity for the workers let go. Traditionally, the focus of outplacement agencies is to get the transitioned worker jobs. Rather than just plugging someone into any old job, what about helping the worker transition into another viable career path?
Additionally, transitioned IT executives/workers often don’t avail themselves of proffered services that are inadequate. Many are disappointed that:
- The traditional outplacement firms don't understand the special needs of IT, IT work, and the IT market, and are therefore ineffective in preparing the transitioned IT worker into a new career path
- Even well written resumes fare poorly on job boards! The best way to get transitioned workers placed is via targeted introductions and networking.
AVVAL Transition Services allow organizations to better plan RIFs and care for transitioned workers so that they are returned to the outside workforce prepared for new IT challenges and focused on new career paths. AVVAL Transition services provide the tools a transitioned IT worker needs, for the transition and future career growth. Your organization is seen in a positive light, while retained workers maintain high morale and loyalty.
