7 Reasons why your company needs employee development

No one will deny that the last two years have been tumultuous in the business world. Challenges with the pandemic, chip shortages, supply and demand, cost of material and the lack of workers has caused many businesses to lose profits if not balance on the brink of closing. Employee Development is one area that is in desperate need of improvement for most companies. Take a look at the seven benefits:

ONE: For companies to remain competitive in their niche, the organization must continue to outperform the competition. Employee development can help the organization meet – and even exceed – performance expectations.

TWO: Today's business environment is all about constant change. And that change not only brings challenges (for the workforce), but if handled properly, it also opens previously unexpected opportunities. It is therefore vital for the workforce to be able to handle ever-evolving situations quickly and effectively. Adaptable employees are great at improvising solutions where employees with less-developed skills would simply accept the status quo. One of the benefits of having a well-defined employee development program is that it can equip employees to better handle the unexpected.

THREE: HR professionals can attest to the fact that it’s not just enough to advertise job vacancies – it’s equally important for prospective employees to want to apply for those posts. If the latter is absent, companies will not attract the best and the brightest to help them remain competitive.

According to a Whitepaper produced by ATD Research (sponsored by Paradigm Learning) - titled Building a Culture of Learning, The Foundation of a Successful Organization - companies are more competitive and agile, and their workforce more engaged when there’s a culture of learning and knowledge-sharing across the organization. Helping develop employee talent, including through tactics such as personalized development plans, creates a highly attractive working environment. According to the study such organizations, that have a mature learning culture, are three-times more likely to use that fact as a recruitment tool. And implementing a robust employee development program is the first step in that direction.

FOUR: Investing in employee skills development programs is important to ensure that the workforce can do what they must do to “keep the ship afloat”. However, employee development can also be a big money-saver in the longer-term.

FIVE: If an organization is to grow, survive and thrive in the long-term, it needs to build a continuous stream of would-be-leaders. Unfortunately, leadership skills rarely come from attending Ivy League institutions or going on weekend leadership workouts – though that helps.

Organizations with strong leadership demonstrate a +37% rise in revenue per employee and +9% in gross profit margin, according to the report of Bersin by Deloitte - High-Impact Leadership. The New Leadership Maturity Model.

SIX: Having a workforce that’s fully committed and engaged with the organization at every level is vital for success. Driving employee engagement, so that they remain motivated to the company’s mission, is a function of various factors, such as a good working environment, employee recognition and appreciation, frequent communication and great training.

Studies by the Dale Carnegie institute found that a highly engaged workforce can lead to exceptional productivity improvements – as high as 202%. In fact, 85% of leaders believe that employee engagement is a strategic priority.

According to Gartner, globally, employee engagement is low and has been low for at least the last two decades. The latest Gartner Global Talent Monitor finds that only 32% of employees globally report high levels of intent to stay and only 14% report high levels of discretionary effort day to day.

A well-defined employee engagement program can balance all the critical employee motivational factors, including training and skills development, to deliver the benefits of a fully-motivated workforce across the company.

SEVEN: To be a true market leader in one's niche, it is important for companies to be nimble, flexible and accommodative to the needs of their customers and partners. Having a well-balanced workforce, that has the skills to innovate and compete for new business opportunities, is one benefit that robust employee development plans offer to organizations. Such programs not only develop existing skills but can be used to deliver longer-term competitiveness by instilling new skills that might be needed in the future.

In summary, therefore, a well-trained, dynamic and highly motivated workforce is crucial to any organization. And the best way to raise employees to such standards is to invest in their ongoing development. Such employees not only offer financial benefits to the organization, in terms of profitability and performance improvements, but they help with employee morale and retention.
