Your workers are similar to the kids on the slide. If there is a lack of attention on employee growth, and if individuals do not make an attempt to ascend, they will instead fall downward. If they do not keep up with current events, they will quickly find themselves at the bottom, where they will be of little use to your company. They will never be able to fulfil the job you recruited them for if they do not work hard to advance. They won’t even keep the talents that you recruited them with.
Offering meaningful training that will help your staff expand on their present talents in order to help them climb upward is one method you can assist employee development. It does, however, need work on both your and their parts.
How can a manager maintain a positive attitude while while providing relevant and engaging staff training? Stale training, as we all know, does little to increase performance or morale. While training topics might range from memory enhancement to communication improvement to origami, you, as the manager, must decide which areas are the most critical to focus on.
Finding professors who are both instructive and fascinating is just as crucial as having appropriate training. One boss enrolled her employees in an economics lesson. Both during and after class, the supervisor saw that the pupils in the classroom were positive and smiling. Their engagement was unprecedented in the manager’s experience. Those who had taken the class were ready to put their newly acquired skills and knowledge to work once it was over.
The manager, of course, felt that the first economics class was exceptional, so she sent additional employees to a similar session the next year. What transpired after that was a letdown. The second economics class was presented by a different lecturer. The lecturer was so boring that the students couldn’t wait for class to end, and it appears that just a few pupils in the class actually learnt anything. “I understood more about economics before I went into that class than I do now,” one student informed his supervisor.
The case of economics education is not unusual. The teacher may make all of the difference in whether or not the pupils learn anything. When it comes to improving employee development, the subject isn’t the sole consideration. Find the best tutors you can if at all feasible. Employee morale and performance will reflect the findings of your search.
