It should not end once they’ve signed on the dotted line of the contract, this should only be the beginning. Spending time and money on staff development should be part of your commitment to your team.
Most employees start a career with a path in mind, it is part of your role to help them achieve those dreams, within reason….we can’t all be Bill Gates.
Developing your employees will not only be good for them but will be a huge benefit to your business.
You could create a team of focussed, well balanced professionals who not only enjoy their job but are excited by your business. These employees will then be a great source of free advertising, people who are motivated at work will talk about your business.
To do this you must open up the communication channels within your business all the way from the shop floor to the board room. Mentoring can be a great way of helping employees develop and achieve their goals whilst also improving their performance.
