Today, a job description is almost obsolete. Even the most skilled professionals find themselves learning something new, or upskilling themselves, every few years. Employees who miss the chance, or lack the inclination, to grow, often find themselves sidelined very soon. At RainKraft, one of our goals this year is to help upskill individuals who can then become valuable assets to an organization.
But, and there’s always a but, can you fit work and learning into an eight-hour workday?
Luckily, the answer is a yes. Research has shown time and time again that as the day progresses, an employee’s efficiency reduces, and that most employees only work for about two to three hours each day. This is a brilliant opportunity for employers to leverage upon- an employee who gains continuous stimulus at their workplace is much more likely to stay engaged and a lot less likely to quit abruptly.
Hence, as an organization, set a goal this year to upskill your employees. We have chosen to do this by exposing our team to new and different projects. Also, since we are a remote team, we will meet at least once every month and spend some serious time learning from each other.
Learning GoalsLarger organizations with more diverse teams need a learning structure to succeed in this endeavor.
