Professional certification management has become increasingly important in the telecoms industry due to its many transformative technologies, techniques, and standards. It is of paramount importance that Human Resource (HR) executives in this sector invest in a rigorous certification management process as a lack of such may lead to a series of critical adverse effects.
In the telehealth industry, a certification system not only ensures that personnel possess the requisite technical and operational acumen needed to perform essential roles, but also safeguards the provider against any legal, financial and operational liabilities. Any shortfall in certified individuals can have significantly damaging effects on the business.
Professional qualifications without a proper accrediting process can be render worthless. Applicants may have achieved these degrees through dubious or substandard sources, or individuals may have purchased false credentials. Without a comprehensive certification management program, HR executives must ascertain the accuracy of these credentials – a laborious and time-consuming task as well as a tremendous risk.
The lack of certification also carries the danger of contagion for the entire organization. This has been seen in recent years when the shortfalls of existing certification programs were revealed in the wake of large-scale breaches, the repercussions of which ripple throughout the entire industry. That is why it is so paramount that proper processes are implemented.
Another challenge posed by not utilizing proper certification management is the hindrance to growth within the organization. Without a comprehensive process, upskilling and reskilling employee potential is severely limited as strong evidence of existing qualifications must be presented in order to be considered for advancement. This limits the organization’s capability to increase the technical breadth and depth of its workforce.
Lastly, failing to have a certified workforce increases the risk of lost revenue and productivity, as those without requisite qualifications may take up roles that could lead to costly errors and erode confidence among customers or other stakeholders.
Thus, it is lucidly apparent that HR executives in the telehealth industry cannot, and should not, ignore the importance of certification management. To do so, would likely lead to a vicious cycle of diminishing work standards and diminishing faith in the organization, creating havoc with plummeting long term growth.
By investing in a rigorous certification management process, HR executives can ensure that their organization is furnished with a sufficient pool of qualified employees that can meet the challenges ahead, ultimately leading to an enriching working environment and an advantage on the competitive landscape.
