Offered as an optional Module with either SDMS V e-Training or SDMS V e-HRP for Web and Intranet Access. SDMS V e-Needs provides Employee Self Serve for them to enter and update their Training Needs or for Line Managers to do so when carrying out Job Reviews.
A simple easy to use screen allows Employees to specify their Training Requirements and Needs On Line by the Subject or Training Area – providing a link to the Business Plan – the specific element of training, the level of training and its urgency. The process through which it is determined (such as Appraisal or a Survey) can be recorded separately for each item of need and a weighting relative to other needs set. Further details can also be held including a General Description of the Need, the Duration of Training Required, How the Training Should be Delivered and by whom. Likewise Managers can update their Employees Training Needs File On Line - whether as a result of Appraisal Staff Survey or other occasion.
This feeds back immediately into the SDMS “back office“ System and allows Needs to be matched to Available Training Opportunities, this is built into the System. With a Person's Needs fully available at the Enrolment Stage, Names of Possible Delegates are available at the touch of a button. The ability to Reserve Places, Directly Enroll, or simply Notify Employees by Letter of a Potentially Relevant Course are all available.
