Training opportunities are essential for workforce growth. Developing the skills your employees need to reach company goals helps increase your bottom line.
Robust training opportunities support meaningful, sustainable workforce growth. These opportunities enhance employee engagement, performance, and productivity. They also elevate job satisfaction, employee morale, and attraction and retention rates.
Workforce training opportunities should focus on short- and long-term goals, provide motivation, and encourage employees to succeed. These opportunities also should be available to all employees and cater to their needs and interests.
Choose among these training opportunities that can help your workforce grow.
Encourage managers to have their employees share presentations on topics they learn about. These topics might relate to the projects employees work on or the skills they develop. The presentations support public speaking, analysis, and communication skills.
Support shadowing a colleague or coworker to learn about other opportunities within your organization. Employees can gain firsthand experience working in another role that interests them. Then, the employee can decide whether to take on the roles full-time.
Online Training Opportunities
Online training is efficient and cost-effective. You can have managers track their employees’ progress and offer assistance and support as needed.
Bring in an expert to train a group of employees on the same topic in a classroom setting. The group setting supports communication, questions, and interactive learning. This structure also helps standardize the messaging and build consistency in learning.
Having peers train peers takes away the intimidation of employees learning from someone they do not know. Also, creating a relaxed learning environment helps employees feel comfortable asking questions to better understand the concepts. Additionally, managers can observe these training opportunities to gain insight into employee goals and perspectives about the company for additional growth.
Encourage managers to coach and mentor their employees. Because managers interact with their teams daily, they can provide constructive feedback to improve employee performance. Managers also can answer questions, provide guidance and support, and suggest training opportunities customized to each employee.
