The Employment Landscape & The Skills Gap:

The Employment landscape is undergoing significant change. Rapid technological advancements are seeing more traditional industries contract and it is expected that some 40% of current jobs will be automated over the next 10-15 years. This same influx of new technologies is driving demand for an increased array of new technical skills, methodologies and innovation. Many industries are struggling to find skilled people to fill well-paid jobs. A 2015 Australian Industry Group study found that 44% of companies had positions they could not fill.

 

A2K Talent Solutions

In an attempt to address the skills gap facing many of our clients, A2K has developed the Talent Solutions program. Leveraging our industry expertise and market knowledge it is anticipated we will be an excellent source of highly skilled technical talent. Specifically, we aim to provide our clients with access to highly skilled: Architects; Engineers; Drafts people; BIM specialists; Revit specialists; Project Leads; Interior Designers, etc.

 

How do we do it?

Each year A2K train 1000’s of architects and engineers in the implementation and use of design and modelling software along with best practice methodologies and project based consulting. Our Talent Solutions program combines our knowledge of market and skills requirements with our training capability and industry connections.

We identify both passive and active candidates who might be suited to working for you, including cultural alignment, project experience and skills capability. Using KnowledgeSmart® we then benchmark candidate skills against international standards and provide you with a report per candidate. Unlike traditional recruiters we have the capacity to up-skill / train our candidates (at our expense) developing skills / candidates that simply can’t be found in the open market. We continue to train our candidates (again at our expense) for up to 12 months after they’ve started to work for you. This will ensure your new employees have ever increasing skill levels and drive further innovation through your business.

In short we train candidates before they start working for you, and we continue to train them for up to 12 months after commencement with you – and we cover the costs, that’s right, there’s no additional cost to you for this continual employee development.

Some of our clients like to include the initial training as part of their induction program, whilst others prefer that initial training be completed before new employees commence work, we can accommodate both preferences. With hundreds of face to face & online courses to choose from we offer limitless flexibility to ensure your A2K candidates remain highly skilled and valuable employees.

Research indicates that higher levels of innovation occur in companies that have diverse workforces (race, gender, age etc.). Through our Talent Solutions program we believe that we are uniquely positioned to assist you to achieve a diverse and skilled workforce. Additionally, A2K deploys inclusive recruitment practices that attempt to address diversity issues such as gender imbalances.
