A few years ago, potential recruits could be enticed with extravagant perks and benefits. On-site massages, cafeteria with gourmet food and nap pods, were some of the options that job seekers would get. But with hybrid and remote work models, these benefits have lost popularity. After all, why would anyone need a nap pod, when they’re working from their bedroom?
But what about learning and development? Is that just another perk or benefit or does it go beyond that? Let’s find out
Combat the Great Resignation with workplace learning
We’re all aware of the Great Resignation — a pandemic-induced phenomenon that made employees quit their jobs due to burnout, lack of advancement opportunities and compensation. Specialized learning programs to train fresh recruits, first-time managers, female workforce and senior leaders, can help address the issue of advancement opportunities.
Develop future leaders
Learning programs can help you identify future leaders from within your organization. Since the managerial candidate is already aware of the organization’s goals and functions, they’re swiftly able to settle into their new roles as leaders and achieve greater productivity.
Empower your employees
It’s no big secret that with the right set of skills, employees can achieve team, and by extension, organizational goals. Learning programs that focus on upskilling in the area of foundational skills such as collaboration, leadership and communication, empower employees to thrive in their professional lives.
Workplace learning: not just another benefit
Investing in a learning program that is customized to your immediate requirements is a boon not just for the organization, but for your employees as well. When a company invests in employees’ career development, it is reciprocated in the form of better efficiency and productivity from the workers.
