Of course, large organisations with hundreds or thousands of employees will have an HR department and maybe even learning and development manager; but that’s not to say even a small to medium-sized business shouldn’t be thinking about creating a learning culture. Here’s why:
- Improved employee performance – Any manager or employee that receives ongoing training is more able to perform in their job as compared to an employee that doesn’t receive any training. Ongoing learning and development will help every employee learn new skills and support their current skills which means they will learn how to do the job better, faster and with more confidence.
- Greater confidence enhances an employee’s overall performance.
Managers and employees who are competent make the life of the senior leaders easier. These people are also more promotable and can take on greater responsibilities.
