Nothing is as constant as change – this is especially true for the IT industry. Like any other IT player, Lufthansa Systems Hungary faces challenges like a rapidly changing skill landscape, future skills uncertainty, and a highly competitive labor market.
Together with HRForecast, Lufthansa Systems Hungary conducted a strategic skill management project to bring transparency into the existing skill supply, the future skill requirements, resulting in skill gaps and tailored measures to tackle the gaps.
„I was impressed by the ease with which the Big Data concept of HRForecast provided transparency, benchmark information and therefore a target-oriented analysis of skills.“
Michael Herrmann, Managing Director, Lufthansa Systems Hungary
Questions to be clarified:
1. Data source identification
Together with the client, we analyze and extract data systems that comprise skill-related data sources (e.g., training system, CVs, assessments, etc.) The client extracts the data and stores it on a local machine.
2. Skill registration and analytics
Machine learning technologies scan the (unstructured) data and extract information related to skills, knowledge, and competencies. A comprehensive analysis uncovers skill potentials and risks on the required level of detail (department, team, role, etc.)
3. Strategy & planning workshop
We presented skills in a management workshop and determined skill requirements and capacities.
4. Insights & recommendations
We shared skill gaps, benchmarks, and the labor market with the client. We also formulated measures and strategies to answer the client’s questions.
