L&D Triggers Teamwork and Cohesion
We find employees not sharing a social bond beyond professionalism. When people mingle with colleagues in a team while interacting with an L&D Module, they tend to keep aside their thought perspectives. Giving it a boost on the team operations effectiveness. Acquaintances in a team tend to collaborate their best to achieve a greater output as compared to sessions framed for individuals. The attributes of discussions, brain-storming, communication, resolving, supporting, debating & forming a final stand as a team can build a strong bond amongst the workforce. As per the survey of SHRM, 77% of employees stand that their relationship with their colleagues, is an important driver of engagement & motivation. With the acquisition of skills & tools, individuals can greatly contribute to the overall performance of the organization.
How does Training Modules Impact Employee Engagement?
What makes an organisation a Great Place to Work? A perfect play of time can help us explore, evaluate & explain to us the different aspects of the employee experience map.

In a world that has replaced hard work with smart work, learning & development pushes every boundary to be a relevant resource with the right set of skills. Many employers tend to look at this domain as a risk, but the new normal adds the view of an essential practice that can add value to your people as well as the organisation. Remember the crux of a Best Employer attracts the Best Employees, the more training you give, the more productivity is reaped.
Plan the Best Suited L&D Program
An Employer should first plot the Organisational goals, along with Functional objectives that can have definite key results attached. Competencies of employees, Personal analysis is a must to understand one’s demography and needs before you introduce an L&D Module.
It is highly essential to translate training into practice. These objectives serve as the starting point for the design of the training’s content and methodology is followed to impart training. The active dosage of these modules across a year can have a better impact on the employees.
III. One Size Does Not Fit All
Training methods can either be trainer-centered or trainee-centered. Pacesetting, referral handouts, active exercises, and many more factors are some of the detrimental factors. Each department might have a different set of needs that has to be catered to, each learning and adopting style might vary, thus a flexible yet customized approach has to be conquered.
IV. Post Event Engagement
Does your training has an everlasting impact? How do make sure, employees take learning to their work tables and eventually combine them in the tasks assigned to them. In-cubicle training at work can have prominence more than just theoretical expression. We believe the place of work can be an office or even home. Post-event engagement & deliberate interaction with the employer is a necessity.
V. Tracking Progress
Linking learning and career growth to employee interests and aspirations. A Simple yet powerful way to make operations transparent to view every employee’s way ahead. Career Growth Trajectory is one of the major reasons that can hinder talent retention in an organization. You can start today.
