Proficiency underpins performance for employees and capabilities

Performance management is essentially pointless without a measure of proficiency
CANBERRA, Australia - Nov. 29, 2022 - PRLog -- The term proficiency is used to describe an advancing level of skill and knowledge in a certain field. In the workplace, proficiency can be used as a way of understanding an employee's day-to-day performance. In their latest article, the Acorn subject matter experts dive into the concept of proficiency and break down the benefits as well as how to develop proficient employees.

Proficiency plays an important part in learning and development programs. L&D programs need to deliver an outcome, outcomes that need to be continually assessed and measured beyond the end of a course. Proficiency helps with this through efficient recruitment and performance evaluation techniques.

By ensuring their workforce has the expertise to drive a competitive edge, organisations also give themselves the chance to weather market forces, maybe even avoid them entirely. Proficiency is what powers expertise, and forging proficient employees maximises productivity, optimises resources and increases profitability.

"Performance management is essentially pointless without a measure of proficiency," said Blake Proberts (Co-Founder and Managing Director). "Measuring and developing proficiency through strategic L&D means you're better able to realise capability-led strategies in the workforce."

If proficiency is a measure of competence, knowledge and skills, then developing all three through theory and practice is the key to developing proficiency. This can be achieved by continually measuring job proficiency, targeting soft skills and personalising the learning process.
