Developing Employees For Fun And Profit
Over at the Harvard Business Blog, Steven Demaio has posted a great article about how to identify and develop the talents of your current employees. Many organizations are in the midst of a hiring freeze, but that doesn’t mean businesses can stop moving. Waiting until the economy revives to innovate, change, and grow is akin to business suicide.
Your current employees are your greatest asset. If you invest some time in your employees you can reap incredible returns. Find out who your employees are, what they like to do, and what motivates them. Maybe even give them behavioral assessments to find out what their natural bent is. Once you learn more about your staff, train them and give them a chance to shine. I guarantee it will be worth your while.
