Why Employers Should Invest In Training
Employee Training & Development MUST be on Your Radar!
A report by Aon Hewitt and the Business Council of Canada identified leadership skills as the largest and most concerning skill gap currently experienced by Canadian companies. In fact, 54% of companies surveyed expressed concern for replacing leaders as the population ages. In addition, as we begin to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeing a large number of employees leaving their current role and company in search of new opportunities. Employees may be choosing to jump-ship due to a plethora of factors such as burnout and a lack of work-life synergy, decreased connection to the company, culture and people, newfound freedom grounded in remote work, and/or decreased opportunities for mentoring/coaching and development.
The first step in resolving these challenges is investing in the learning and development of top talent in order to engage, retain and prepare them for future leadership roles. We know, when your people feel as though you have invested in them – they are exponentially more willing to invest in your company and will go above and beyond to assist in achieving your organization’s goals and objectives.
