A study by Udemy revealed, that 57% of workers ranked opportunities to learn and grow as one of the most important aspects of workplace culture; and 58% of workers said that the No. 1 form of stress relief they use today is company-provided training and professional development programs.
These statistics sound great, can we really relief stress and improve employee engagement by providing professional development programmes to our employees? The answer is YES!
The most important aspect of your organisation/business is your staff. Management and leadership skills & knowledge are vital in today’s business environment to engage the modern workforce.
According to Courtney Moran, Senior Research Specialist at G2, engaged employees are the force that propels successful organisations into the future.
But what is employee engagement?
Employee engagement is the level of emotional connection employees feel toward their organisation. When employees feel valued, their commitment and enthusiasm for their job grow. This, in turn, increases employee retention, performance and productivity.
Top employee engagement tips include:
· Foster an environment of team collaboration
· Promote career development
· Recognise employees that perform consistently
· Using employee engagement apps and software’s
· More compassionate leadership
An inspiring manager creates more team engagement. According to research by leadership development experts Dr. Brad Shuck and Maryanne Honeycutt-Elliott, “higher levels of engagement comes from employees who work for a compassionate leader—one who is authentic, present, has a sense of dignity, holds others accountable, leads with integrity and shows empathy.”
