A good employee is hard to find. But, if you’re lucky enough to find one, keeping them can be even more difficult. Today, organizations are realizing that a corporate learning strategy which offers convenient, engaging training opportunities designed to deliver information employees actually find beneficial, can go a long way toward improving employee retention rates.
One of the biggest ways that a company’s corporate learning strategy can impact their employees’ desire to stay and succeed with the organization is by showing them that they’re valued. When your employer takes the time to design and develop cutting edge training opportunities that help you learn new, marketable skills, it sends the message that your position is secure, and that you as an individual are worth investing in. As a result these employees don’t have to constantly re-evaluate their job security, or stay on the look out for better opportunities. Instead, they’re freed up to focus on their contribution to the continued success of the organization that has supported their professional development.
The availability of these corporate learning solutions and the feeling of security and value that is felt by employees as a result has a positive impact on the company culture; which in turn also affects employee retention. A good company culture, like a good employee, is hard to come by. If the turnover rate is low at an organization, there’s usually a positive company culture at the root of the staff’s desire to remain in their jobs.
These benefits of efficient and engaging training resources improve business as well. And, this heightened organizational success can also have a positive impact on employee retention. When the company is doing well employees often feel as though they’re contributing to meaningful outcomes; which is important overall job satisfaction. They also see an inherent potential for security as well as upward mobility by staying with the company.
Developing a solid employee learning strategy that helps retain employees can have myriad other benefits for any organization as well. From improved innovation to leaner operating costs, and more there are so many reasons to take the time to design and implement up to date training solutions geared to meet your employees needs.
