How To Offer Your Employees Lifelong Learning Opportunities
While onboarding represents an employee’s introduction to an organization, lifelong learning serves as an organization’s ongoing and concerted commitment to the personal growth of their employees and a determination to help them tap into their full potential. Despite the benefits, lifelong learning initiatives for employees can be challenging and are frequently overlooked or set aside amid the daily demands of the workplace.
However, organizations that embrace lifelong learning go beyond traditional employee orientation to create a holistic journey that encourages self-reflection and training throughout a team member’s career path. When done right, organizations create more engaged and satisfied employees who also are more productive in their duties. These organizations not only keep their workers—they attract others drawn to a workplace with a reputation for developing the talents of their staff.
