The importance of Continuous Development for a successful career
Everything else is permanent except “CHANGE”. I have been hearing this sentence for the last 30 years and don’t think this sentence will undergo any alteration in the future. “CHANGE” is many times a much-dreaded word as it makes people move out of their comfort zone and do things that they have never done before. With “Digital” being the new buzz word in today’s world, the “CHANGE” is taking place at a much rapid pace than before
To thrive and succeed in today’s fast changing business environment new skills need to be acquired and old skills need to be sharpened to quickly adapt to the changing needs and demands. Hence continuous learning through training's should become an integral part of any organizations strategy, helping employees gain new skills and expand their knowledge base to cope with the changes demanded in the workplace.
This will not only help employees to succeed in their career, but ensure valuable contribution towards organizational growth and success. Studies have shown that investing in learning opportunities for employees makes them feel more engaged and motivated. After all employees are the biggest assets for any business. What is important is to understand the change and accordingly identify the skills both soft skills and technical skills that need to be imparted to employees to be successful on the job.
“An empowered organization is one in which individuals have the knowledge, skill, desire and opportunity to personally succeed in a way that leads to collective organizational success.” - M. Shawn Covey
Training programs aligned to business objectives can help employees get valuable knowledge in a short span of time leading to improved employee performance and consistent measurable output. Highly satisfied employees will have a positive impact on an organization’s bottom line, which makes the cost and time spent in right training’s a worthwhile investment.
All in all, WinSpire firmly believe's that continuous development is extremely important for employee engagement, for creating a supportive and highly engaged workplace, making employee’s more competent to cope with the fast changing needs, grow and succeed in their career.
