What is a Training Matrix and Why Does my Business Need One?

Keeping staff training records up-to-date can be time-consuming and is often overlooked as we keep up with everything else. However, ensuring that your business and workforce keeps organised is vital. One way to maintain this is by knowing the skills, qualifications and records your staff have. This is where a Training Matrix can help.

What is a Training Matrix?

A Training Matrix is an essential piece of equipment which allows you keep track of each member of your company and the status of their qualifications. It also allows you to organise your workforce’s skills and training records in a clear and simple way. Administrators are able to manage their teams accordingly and analyse training needs at the touch of a button.

This software is intended primarily for Health and Safety managers, training managers, operations managers and HR departments. By using the matrix you will be able to identify who has the required skill sets to carry out certain roles or tasks within your business. You can instantly download materials such as reports, certificates and green cards, as well as centralise your training records.

Why Does my Business Need a Training Matrix?

The Training Matrix saves hours of searching through paper records or spreadsheets. With the matrix in place, any gaps or shortages in skills of the members of your staff are easily identified. This allows you to keep track of each member of your team and the status of their qualifications with ease. The Training Matrix is interactive and intuitive with many features such as email and text message notifications for expired or expiring qualifications, instant search, export options and lots more.

Grouping people has never been simpler; an administrator can put someone in charge who can access and show a contractor’s documents, rather than every individual having to present their records. Your business will become more efficient by planning a training schedule which makes sure there are always enough qualified staff to cover each job.

Knowing that your workforce has suitable training, and that it is in date, is important. By being proactive and ensuring your staff work on tasks that they are properly trained for protects both them and you.
