While training a new hire is important, it is critical to retrain, up skill and educate the current employee base. Companies can only succeed in the long-term if they recruit and engage employees who can respond to and shape the challenges of the future.
In today’s dynamic market scenario, nurturing, grooming, and developing employees is critical to ensure that an organisation keeps pace with the competition and creates value for its customers. Since, today’s workplace is multi-generational, often the employees struggle to find a common ground to break the ice and gel. “Training with group/team acts as a great playing field leveler, this helps in mitigating the socio-demographic differences and builds a comprehensive coherent unit,” said Narayana Menon K, director-Marketing, Sanovi Technologies Pvt Ltd.
Well trained employees are able to create a competitive advantage from the opportunities presented by changing markets, increased competition, and new technologies. Subhashini Sriram, director-Human Resources, Unisys Indiabelieves that investing in developing employees’ knowledge and skills increases their productivity. “When employees are being continuously developed, they feel valued and engaged, creating a win-win situation for both employees and companies,” Sriram added.
