Employee Development Centres

What is an Employee Development Centre, and why does it matter to your business?

Your people are your most important asset. Providing focused employee development for them is critical because they are integral to succession planning for the future. Recognising their qualities, as well as the areas that need developing, gives you something to focus on and aim towards. Not only is this good for your business, but it’s good for the future of your people too.

Employee Development centres use a series of exercises and psychometric testing to identify the strengths and weaknesses of individuals in your teams. We’ll then work with you to establish the skills and behaviours they need to develop further and create a realistic path to success.

Who is it for?

Businesses looking to build a employee development centre tailored to the needs of their workforce – suitable for all skill levels, job roles and learning styles.

Facilitators for the employee development centre are chosen depending upon your desired outcomes and subject areas to ensure the right fit for your business overall.

Employee development centres are a great way to support staff by helping them create their own development path to success, and an ideal way to assist their managers in supporting that journey.

The impact it will have

Clients who have implemented an effective employee development centre have benefited from increased productivity and team cohesion that has contributed to an improved bottom line and business growth. Why? Because staff felt more proficient and motivated in their roles than ever before.

That’s not all, because when employees feel happier and more engaged in their role, they are more likely to stay. Demonstrating to your people that you care about their future really does improve employee retention.

We do this by:

Provide direct feedback on your people through trained professionals who’ve watched them in action. Creating personalised development plans to move individuals’ attributes to the next level.

Developing and enhancing skills and behaviours that will have a ‘knock-on’ effect on your bottom line. Providing a platform for future personalised development rather than a ‘sheep dip’ effect. Because you’ll retain talent and career development for all participants, this shows the business wants to invest in its future through its people. Read 6 reasons you need to invest in employee development.
