Employee engagement research has demonstrated that having skill development and career opportunities are some of the most highly valued job factors, especially for the new Millennial workers. However, managers can be resistant to providing employees with training. This webinar demonstrates how organizations can create a culture where workforce development is a regular occurrence on the job, on a day-to-day basis for employees at work.
Many organizations are now putting effective skill and career development programs in place to engage and retain key talent and develop talented resources for the future.
In this session, you will learn how to embed employee development practices in your organization’s cultural ‘DNA’. Join us to learn how to develop employees to their full potential and how to ensure that employee development becomes an ongoing organizational priority that supports business strategy.
Employees frequently leave organizations for career advancement opportunities. They can also get bored or become stagnant in their jobs without a feeling of growth and getting ahead.
Organizations that succeed at creating a development culture enjoy profound competitive advantages by attracting and retaining talented employees. Many organizations emphatically state their commitment to employee development practices and set goals for building talent and promoting from within.
Yet, short-term pressures often drain the development effort and drive external recruiting as the solution, undercutting employee growth and sending a message to the organization that commitment to employee development is weak.
Avoid unwanted turnover, increase performance, and improve employee engagement by creating both career development programs and consistent habits within your company.
