Is your team a group of motivated, happy individuals working tirelessly to improve your business? If so, lucky you! If not, don’t despair – there is something you can do to turn your team from a group of tired, clock-watchers into a motivated and empowered dream team. In many instances revising your employee training programme to allow for employee development can make all the difference in turning around morale and boosting workplace enthusiasm.
Employees want growth and advancement in their careers. Helping your team to reach their full potential can ensure return on investment as employees knuckle down and take enjoyment in their work tasks. Setting up and granting access to an online training solution allows employees to enhance their skills and education. When exposed to personalised training, employees have the opportunity to demonstrate mastery. They are able to access training that is meaningful and relevant to them, leading to greater engagement and achievement. When offered a choice of engaging with their training, employees tend to develop ownership of their own training and development journey by nurturing training strategies, academic mindsets, and self-regulated training behaviours. Personalised online training has multiple benefits for both your employees and your business.
Gone are the days of separating work and happiness. Reports from the World Health Organisation show that 58% of the world’s population spends their lives at work. It only makes sense that the workplace becomes a place where employees can enjoy themselves and experience happiness. Adding fun, valuable training to your employee training programme can make all the difference to how your employees view their working life. Happy employees soon become loyal employees.
High staff turnover will quickly eat into your training budget as you scramble to upskill and replace employees that have left. It turns into a never-ending task of plugging skill leaks, so your business doesn’t sink. Investment in employee development can save you the time and hassle of constantly training replacement employees that don’t stick around long enough to advance in skill and take your business to the next level. If your employees are given the support and growth that they need, why would they seek employment elsewhere? They wouldn’t, you would have a team that you will grow in strength, benefitting your business as their skills increase.
With a strong team in place – one that is invested in your business and its growth – you will quickly see a boost in productivity. Things like unpaid voluntary overtime and 250% effort from your employees, will soon become a reality and not just an elusive dream. With a dedicated and loyal workforce, you will find that the quality of your services and products will also increase.
Happy employees take pride in their work. When you are proud of your work, you give it your all to ensure that the quality is of a high standard every time – whether this be the service you offer to a client, or the time invested in perfecting a product.
All of this is possible with a small reassessment of your employee training programme to allow for employee development. Online training has the invaluable benefit of offering employees support via technology. Through the use of technology, employees receive immediate feedback on assessments reinforcing the training experience and immediately giving positive reinforcement for achievements and milestones. Instant feedback allows employees to identify gaps in their knowledge and address it immediately, rather than continuing to struggle without guidance.
