The New Normal: Preparing your Teams for the Recovery

Estimates show that 80% of professionals work in group settings [Source: Attle S. & Baker, B.] with employers valuing communication skills and effective work within diverse groups [Source: Finelli C., Bergom I., Mesa, V.]

And, “86% of employees cite lack of collaboration or ineffective communication for workplace failure.” [Source: Salesforce]

So, how can employers ensure that their teams are confident with collaboration, high productivity, and collective success? How can they equip their teams with those skillsets?

Professional development in a group setting can achieve both. Employees have the space to learn and upskill within a group dialogue to problem solve together and better retain the material. At the same time, employers have the opportunity to create a strong collaborative culture and bolster team productivity, project outcomes, and company brand.

Employers, Attract and Retain Quality Talent

Become an Attractive and Appealing Organization

40% of employees [Source: Gallup] who receive poor job training leave their positions within the first year. You can elevate your company image and attract the right employees by providing opportunities for professional growth. This builds positive brand recognition amongst the workforce. Acknowledge staff as valuable assets to the team while adding a competitive component to a job offer for quality candidates. With these opportunities in place, morale, productivity, enthusiasm, and loyalty can be nurtured.

Whether training is directly or indirectly related to individual roles, there is an explicit correlation to increased productivity. If the training is directly related to your current role this not only builds knowledge and applicable skills but adds a wealth of new ideas. Indirectly related development can bring a new wave of energy, a different perspective, and collaboration among various teams.

Stay Up to Date

Each industry will continue to evolve with passing time. These changes put in place new approaches, technology, and practices. It is critical in any field to learn and understand the changes that are happening and how to adapt—to be not only relevant but innovative. Professional development opportunities provide insight while embracing more efficient methods and staying in-the-know.
