The connection between company engagement and learning

Aug 24, 2018

In our service and information driven economy, talented people are your most precious commodity. That is why having a personal growth strategy for your employees is a foundational concept in company and employee engagement, and something you cannot ignore. An atmosphere of continual growth is no longer just a desire, it is a necessity for companies that do not want to experience high turnover. When you have an environment where your employees are engaged by their work, you will notice higher levels of productivity. Therefore, it is crucial to connect the organizations mission with everyone’s activities.

Employee engagement is the extent to which an employee’s personal goals and interests align with the vision and goals of the company at which they are employed.

It is no secret that education is one of the best ways individuals can develop new skills and knowledge that they can directly apply to their roles. That is why education is one of the most worthwhile investments your company can make. If you do not have the budget to subsidize an educational program, there are plenty of more options and tools like Ayris that offer great alternatives.

Employee learning is becoming more “consumer like” where audiences search out and choose content for themselves. Micro-learning is a way of teaching and delivering content to learners in small, very specific bursts. At Ayris managers and/or admins can create, modify and share their own learning objectives, the learners are in control of what and when they are learning, and it is a growing trend in Learning Management Systems.

Learning and development opportunities are among the largest drivers of employee engagement and strong workplace culture. Providing learning and development opportunities to individuals show that you are willing to invest in them as a person. On-the-job education has much more  impact on employee performance as formal classroom learning does and considerably increases employee engagement. The transition from passive learning to productive learning can yield significant improvement in employees analytical and social skills. By contributing and participating to the learning process, team members will be more engaged with their work and improve at working together.

With the right knowledge, the right tools, and most importantly the proper mindset, it can be a powerful way to transform your organization and improve your bottom line.
