The difference between a company that is successful and one that struggles is often to do with the employee development programme that is in place. A company’s chances of growth are often linked very closely with the level of commitment towards employee development.
Employees are looking more toward their employers to offer them the chance to continuously improve their knowledge and skills; being paid is no longer enough to attract and retain the best staff in the marketplace.
There are several factors that contribute to creating an environment where employees feel valued and can grow in both knowledge and experience. Setting up a mentoring scheme where newer, less experienced employees are paired with those with more experience is a great way for people to learn from one another. Undertaking employee training programmes, where a company can invest in employees’ continuing education demonstrates the company values its people and wants them to grow.
