Low education level is always a challenge to Human Resource managers since managers would like to assume that the employees they hire are creative enough to handle the tasks which they give them. However, employees with low level of education will have low confidence levels with their skills. The employees will always see the other employees as threats to their existence. Employees with low level of education will always be withdrawn from the rest of the employees as they will feel out of place in an organization. As a result of this withdrawal, the employees will be less productive and at times, they might not be updated on the current affairs of the organization. Employees with low level of education will feel intimidated by their fellow employees who are knowledgeable enough in their fields and at times, they might not be willing to cooperate with them. Lack of uniformity in attitude towards the job will lead to backlog of job in a particular department in the organization.
Communication between the human resource manager and the employees is an important aspect in an organization. The employees are able to raise their concern regarding their departments of work and suggest some improvements on the same. For efficient communication, the employee should have excellent communication skills characterized by fluency in English. Poor English among employees is a major challenge to the Human Resource Managers who might be willing to listen to the employees about any suggestions on improvements on their departments. Employees with poor English speaking skills will mostly shy off from talking to the managers. The shy employees will not be willing to talk to the managers as they will feel intimidated and might develop a negative attitude towards the managers.
In conclusion, both low education and poor English skills are a major challenge to the human resource managers and for this reason, managers must strive to ensure that when hiring employees, they meet the required standards both in the education level and spoken English.
