COVID-19 Pandemic |  IATA Aviation Workforce Skills & Training Report

Greetings from IATA !!

The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in severe budget cuts for training across almost every business in the aviation sector. As the industry restarts, organizations are looking to ensure that employees are trained on the fundamental technical and operational skills, but also the soft skills needed to adapt to new situations and deliver a winning customer experience.

Assessing training needs, prioritizing initiatives, and optimizing budgets are even more crucially important in the face of much remaining uncertainty. Taking inspiration from industry best practices is a sure-fire way to build your strategy.

Some key findings the report brings to light:

• 50% of L&D decision-makers consider an assessment of their organizations' skills and competence requirements as of high importance to business continuity.
• 60% of organizations would value a training needs analysis from an external provider.
• 25% of HR decision-makers believe focusing on safety is the best approach to enable their organization to cope with the impact of the pandemic.
• 85% of organizations indicate that online learning, including virtual classrooms, will play an important role in recovery plans.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) released research on the training requirements for the aviation workforce as the industry starts to recover from the COVID-19 crisis. According to a global survey of some 800 human resources (HR) leaders in the aviation industry responsible for learning and development, right-skilled existing workers, and ensuring that new hires from outside aviation can quickly acquire the necessary skills will be key to successfully building the post-pandemic workforce.

Discover the industry's priorities and strategies to ensure the skills for a successful recovery. Enclosed is the copy of the report "Workforce skills and training to fuel the revitalization of the aviation industry – the HR decision-makers view."

As aviation rebuilds, topics such as sustainability and digitization will gain in importance. IATA is already working with several academic partners to design courses on sustainability to attract new talent and help shape the future of aviation.
