Your Employees Are Thirsty.....for Knowledge
If you're looking to help retain your employees, making sure they are constantly learning new skills; transferrable skills. More than 60 percent said that the opportunity to learn a new skill is an important factor when considering exploring new job opportunities. Additionally, employees want to be able to use their current skill set and continually improve. Research also shows that employees that are able to focus their development around what they are already good at, have a passion around and what your organization needs are more productive and more engaged than those that attempt to work on what they aren't good at. This allows your employees to take their skills from good to great instead of from weak to novice and ulitmately will increase employee engagement, loyalty, and empowerment. Check out this article from Business News Daily for some ideas on keeping your employees replenished and hydrated...with knowledge.
