It can be very easy to neglect the development of your employees. Everyone is busy. Everyone is doing an OK job. There are a million other things that take up a manager’s time. Employee development is a nice to have rather than a must have and you’ll get around to it at some point. However an OK job is not sufficient to drive your business forward. You need to equip your employees with new skills as the market evolves. Or you have a more formal structure and have people managing large teams for the first time but aren’t equipped to do this. This is where we can help.
When thinking about employee development there are a number of areas that you need to consider. Firstly, how are you going to measure performance? Do your employees know what good looks like in their role? Do your employees get regular feedback as to how they are performing and how they can improve?
Putting these basics is the starting point.From there you need to consider what skils and behaviors you need in the future and how you are going to develop them within your business.
