Advancing knowledge retention in the workplace

Right of Way

Imagine being a young professional, someone who has grown up with electronics and smart devices, having to dig through file cabinets or boxes in search of an important document. The reality is, not only is this perceived as an outdated mode of documentation, it makes the transfer of knowledge more complex and cumbersome than necessary.
When long-time employees retire or leave the organization for other reasons, it can be mean a difficult road ahead for employers, especially if adequate steps have not been taken toward institutional and employee knowledge retention.

geoAMPS addresses the importance of knowledge retention in an article published in the September/October 2014 edition of Right of Way Magazine. Titled “The Transfer of Knowledge,” the article discusses how automating processes is critical as veteran employees retire. The article was written by Yogesh Khandelwal, President and Chief Executive Officer of geoAMPS, and Dan Liggett, Communications and Public Relations Manager.
Knowledge retention will become an even greater issue in the near future. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, by 2020 more than 25 percent of U.S. workers will be 55 or older. That continues a trend since 2000 of an increasing number of older employees in the workforce.
Workers approaching retirement possess unique and oftentimes undocumented knowledge of project history and complex processes. When those long-time veterans retire, the organization must not only replace them, but somehow replace their industry knowledge and project expertise.
geoAMPS proposes solutions to help organizations through this dilemma. By creating a centralized Web database of organizational and project information, access to information is easy and reliable.
Organizations should also standardize organizational and job processes. Process standardization is the collection and implementation of best practices. Centralizing best practices streamlines employee training and improves efficiencies in costs and schedules that lead to a stronger bottom line.
