According to a recent survey of managers in the UK, ‘developing people’ is in the top 3 New Year’s Resolutions for management professionals. And it’s easy to see why. Training and development not only increases productivity in the work place, but also encourages employee retention and engagement.
Employee engagement is a vital part of the development cycle – if your people aren’t engaged, they won’t communicate. If they don’t communicate, you’ll never know what they need. And if you don’t know what they need, any efforts and investments you try to make towards implementing training and development plans will be wasted.
