As much as they are employees and any employer recruits them to be ‘fit for the job’, it is also very important to empower them to develop themselves and their skills.
A lot of businesses lack this. They just employ people and use them up without helping them grow. This reduces productivity and limits creativity.
These are 4 ways employees can be empowered.
Seminars: This is escpeially useful for your organisation as knowledge such as trade secrets and expert opinions shared at these seminars bring a positive return on investment back into your business. The staff is motivated and willing and operations move on faster as delay caused by uncertainty in certain areas are removed.
Invite a trainer: Business experts across different niches deliver time tested and trusted insights that cannot be gained without years of experience. Experienced trainers bridge that gap. They bring in sound directions and help bolster employee drive for valuable work.
Review a business book together: One of the major ways of learning and exploring ideas is by reading. Reading gives an individual informative learning about diverse fields. This gives the employees an opportunity to contribute more to the societal projection of the company, especially in solving problems.
Group activity: Giving the employees group works for weekly presentations not only keeps them on the go, but also helps them develop team work and intellectual prowress.
The above, if put into practice would yield more productivity and powerful creativity from employers and employees alike.
