Many employers think that they could be getting more out of team members if only they shared their passion for the company, but that's the wrong way of looking at it. Employees aren't likely to commit to their current employer unless their employer demonstrates a commitment to them first, and the best way to do that is through an employee development program.
Employee development is an employee engagement best practice because it is a literal investment in a team member's future. Once your staff member sees that you are investing in them for the long haul, they are more likely to see your organization as somewhere they can grow and pursue their professional goals. Dojo360 takes online and hybrid learning to the next level through the e³ philosophy of equity, evidence, and engagement, helping you unlock your team's full potential and improve employee engagement.
Employee engagement is simply a measure of how interested an employee is in their employer's values and goals. An engaged employee goes about their job enthusiastically, often spreading their positive attitude to co-workers. A disengaged worker doesn't care about what they're doing and often gives the bare minimum while encouraging colleagues to follow their example. Either way, employee engagement has a significant impact on an organization's broader culture.
A whopping 80 percent of employees feel that they would be more engaged at work with some kind of employee development program in place, according to the Udemy Workplace Boredom Study. Of course, you can't just post a few videos, call it an employee development program, and expect to see any results. Here are five things that are integral to the ultimate success of your program:
If your idea of employee development is limited to a few YouTube videos, they probably won't.
