In today’s job market, employers are desperately looking for individuals with the skills that meet the needs of their particular organization. Unfortunately, they are not finding them. Workforce development is training current workers to meet an organization’s present and future needs. Never was this more important than right now.
Workforce development is needed in many diverse job sectors, ranging from manufacturing to health. It is pertinent to those currently employed and to those searching for employment and/or advancement. Employers need people with skills and employees want to be trained!
During the pandemic, fewer organizations trained their employees. They were in survival mode and just needed to have people working. Today, there is a huge need for employers to facilitate the skill development, especially people skills. When leadership training is provided, it’s a win-win because employees work better with others and have fewer conflicts.
Employers resist leadership development because they think they need to do the training themselves or hire more staff. Hire an outside person! As trainers, we come in, do the training and move on to other organizations butare on call when you need us.
The resources and time you invest in training pays off because it results in higher productivity, reduced stress, and less employee turnover. The returns from leadership development far outweigh any costs and everyone wins, the organization and the employees.
