Employee development builds communication skills, awareness, ethics, and accountability, not just on-the-job skills. These, in turn, improve customer service, foster innovation, lower turnover, reduce workplace conflict—and ultimately, increase profits and productivity.
Many organizations say their employees are their greatest asset. But that’s really true only for organizations providing continuous training and development, particularly as Baby Boomers leave and Gen Y’ers enter the workforce.
So… write down your five personal development goals, then find—and take—courses within your organization to help achieve them. Continuously review and update your goals… get the necessary training… and over time, you’ll improve your skills and knowledge and create career advancement opportunities.
