Employee development is the process of building a person’s self-awareness, understanding, and capacity for responsibility. It encompasses two main themes – empathy and leadership – which are discussed in greater detail below.
When it comes to employee training, the industry standard is “you work for hire.” But in fact, the American Workplace is a winner when it comes to employee development. Over the years, thousands of companies have grown and changed, and each has gone through a period of growth and transformation. During this growth period, companies found new ways to grow their business and their employee experience. Some companies have gone the extra mile to develop employees through on-site mentoring, employee development programs, or off-site trainings. Many companies have created programs that help employees understand the company culture and what makes it great and what doesn’t.
Company culture change
Take a look at the company you work for and notice some unique themes. Are there any departments that stand out? Are there any subcultures that exist only in the minds of employees? If so, it might be time to cultural unacceptable. So what, right? Unfortunately, we often fall into the trap of looking at culture change as a one-off event. We begin with the goal of changing the culture, only to find out that the change doesn’t go far enough. Eventually, we wake up and realize that the company’s entire culture is based on an extreme business model that ignores employee needs. We have to ask ourselves – why? There is no perfect solution to cultural problems. Each company will have its own needs and requirements for cultural inclusion. If you work for a company that values cultural understanding, you can help shape its culture. But, at the same time, you shouldn’t ignore it. You have to deal with it if you want to maintain your job.
If you and your team members work in the same city, state, or country as other employees, you may not realize that there are major cultural differences. That’s a shame. Because the closer you are together as employees – as individuals – the easier it will be to build a culture of shared values, mutual respect, and a culture of service. You don’t have to choose between the two. You can always choose the third option – the hire local. Companies that choose this route are actually promoting cultural diversity. They are hiring employees from around the world, and they are sending the same messages that would be sent by companies that operate in the U.S. alone – don’t pick a local company. The company culture will reflect this diversity.
Establish sustainable working conditions
It’s easy to get demotivated when working in a company that doesn’t treat you right. You should be able to feel comfortable receiving feedback, getting promoted, and having a voice in the decisions that matter. But when you work for companies that don’t treat people right, it’s Hammer time. The time to shine is when employees work for companies that treat them as though they were hired for the right reasons. That means having a healthy work-life balance, being able to take a break when you need to, and scheduling time for decompressing at night. Employees who have a great work-life balance are rewarded with better work-life balance in return. When employees know they can come and go as they please, they are able to focus on what they love – working for the company – and not worry about the “where” or “when” the company will hire or give the job to the next employee.
The future of business is an ever-changing landscape with new challenges and opportunities. As an employee, you need to be aware of what’s happening in the world and what’s coming up next. You also need to make sure you’re taking the right steps forward in order to make progress towards your goals.
