So, you have hired the perfect candidate. How do you keep them happy and prevent them from looking elsewhere? How do you groom for the needs of your company? No employee wants to feel stagnant so the key is to keep your employees engaged and growing. This article provides 5 easy steps to reach that goal.

#1: Outline required skills for the job

It helps to not only have not the job description clearly outlined but also the skills required to perform the tasks. This way, there is no confusion about what is expected of the employee in their role.

#2: Obtain good training programs based on those requirements

Once you’ve clearly outlined what you expect from the employee, it’s important to provide the tools necessary to set them up for success.

#3: Use learning management systems to organize the process

Naturally, you’ll need to record which training applies to specific employees and track the progress of completion. Ease the hassle of administration by investing in a good Learning Management System (LMS).

#4: Assess employee skills and identify gaps

Be sure to assess the employee progress and analyze where they excel and where improvement is needed. This will help you determine which trainings are appropriate for each employee.

#5: Assist in goal development

Lastly, make sure you set goals to measure your progress. These can shift and change over time, based on the progress you’re making. This is a critical step to ensuring you are meeting milestones.

By implementing employee development programs, you’ll create a more skilled and satisfied workforce.
