It’s amazing what a little bit of love can do for the soul. From pet visits at children’s hospitals to church groups at a nursing home, love has been a proven healer. Showing someone that they are important, that their well-being matters can completely change even the bleakest of outlooks.
It’s no difference for employees. Investing in your employees is one of the best ways to show someone that their well-being is important; that they aren’t just another worker ant.
Show your employees the love. Here are 3 benefits to employee education.
Increased Performance. The most obvious point, teaching employees new skills or expanding on existing ones will ultimately increase quality and efficiency. Education courses can range from advanced certification programs that last months to a few simple excel classes. Either way, building upon base skills and creating new ones will bear fruit. When looking for courses for employee education, include the employee on the discussion. Is this something they want to build upon?
Increased Satisfaction. When you invest money into an employee’s education, it shows they have a future with the company and it’s going to be important. Feeling like you’re part of something important is what drives us and it will lead to higher employee satisfaction. Remember, a happy worker is a productive worker.
Decreased Drama. Employee education can almost be equated to a share in the company. Having a stake in where you work means it becomes a part of who you are, and we all love showing ourselves the love. So… employees with a stake in the company are generally going to be more appreciative and less accepting of petty office drama. At the very least, they will be more likely to side with the company verses self-interests.
Showing your employees the love through education will do wonders for your business. Through increased productivity, increased satisfaction and decreased drama you will be on the road to work place Shangri-la in no time.
