Growth is an integral part of every employee’s journey. For one, skills require constant honing and development, mandating continuous efforts of training, coaching, and learning. Keep in mind that a candidate is not only hired based on their current skill set but also on their overall potential. Generally, leaders would ask themselves: What can they bring to the company in the long run? What other abilities can they show in the future? What facets of the organization can they contribute to years from now?
Guidance is paramount to unlocking the potential of an employee. What they bring to the table on day 1 are seeds that leaders should nurture, helping them get from point A to B. In fact, research shows that the required skill set for employees has dramatically changed between 2015 and 2023 by 25%, highlighting the importance of impactful reskilling and tailored L&D programs.
What’s more, it involves establishing objectives that assist in defining their career trajectories and surpass their short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals. Employees should have a vision of where they want to go and what they want to be. Through this, they can focus on which strengths they need to foster, and which weaknesses they need to polish.
This is beneficial for both the employer and the employee, as skill enhancement and talent retention go hand in hand. And in the long run, overall organizational performance is optimized once the workforce becomes rock solid.
L&D teams lead the way by offering new educational opportunities and ensuring that training materials remain up to date, aligning with the organization’s immediate requirements and the wider market dynamics. But as the digital age becomes more complex, progressive organizations know that L&D should be treated as a critical business function rather than just an afterthought, removing all the guesswork and implementing measurable KPIs.
At the center of this movement is Growthspace, an outcome-driven, mastery-based employee development platform that is designed to launch, manage and measure 1:1 coaching & mentoring, team coaching, cohort-based workshops, training, and internal mentoring programs–enabling customers to drive business KPIs through human to human development programs.
