Folks are looking for ways to improve themselves around this time of year, and employers can help their staff become better employees in 2020. Fostering growth and development is essential for employers year-round, and efforts to do so often result in stronger, more dedicated employees. Here are a few ways to encourage professional development among your staff this year. Consider professional development training from Lewis-Price & Associates, Inc. in 2020, and give your employees all the tools they need to grow!
Organize Professional Development Training
One of the best ways to encourage growth among your staff is to host professional development training. Training programs take many forms and cover many different subjects, but the team at Lewis-Price can help you develop a curriculum that fits the needs of your staff. Whether you are looking to teach specific methods or programs or you are looking to strengthen your team’s soft skills, Lewis-Price will work with you to create the perfect course. We offer professional development training that focuses on things like Microsoft Office and Six Sigma, as well as courses that stress other essential skills for professionals in accounting, IT, program management, and more.
Institute a Mentorship Program
Starting a mentorship program in your business is an exciting project that you can get started in 2020. Mentorship programs within a company allow senior executives to pass on their knowledge to motivated employees who are looking to excel. Not only will a mentorship program allow your newer employees to learn valuable skills and make meaningful connections, but it is also sure to boost company morale and engagement. You can start by determining which senior employees would be interested in becoming mentors, learning about newer employees’ areas of interest, and organizing meetups between potential mentors and mentees.
Incentivize Personal Growth
Another way to encourage growth while boosting morale is to incentivize personal growth. Rewarding your employees for putting effort into their physical and mental health is an excellent way to get people excited about getting healthy. Employee health is essential to a strong business for many reasons, and there are many ways to encourage your staff to take a harder look at their wellbeing. Some offices have competitions to see who can walk the most steps over a certain period of time, while others choose to pay for all or part of a gym membership. Keeping your employees healthy allows them to live more balanced lives, both in and out of the office.
