How Training Can Support Employee Morale

How Training Can Support Employee Morale
24/08/2021

Using Training To Boost Employee Morale Believe it or not, employee training is a great way to boost morale in the workplace. Recent studies have shown that most negativity from employees in the workplace is because they feel undervalued by their employers. By investing in your employees it shows you care about their future, but it also supports your own business as well. Whilst, it might seem like an unusual move to boost morale, you may find it has a more positive effect than you might think.

There are many different types of training available and it’s important to remember that when using training to help boost morale, you need training that is flexible and doesn’t seem like a task. Flexible learning typically comes in the form of online training courses, such as what we offer at Wise Global Training, these can be tailored to work in the workplace or at home and learning can be carried out at any pace.

4 Types of Integrated Learning For Businesses When it comes to learning and training, there are many different types of options available to choose from. It’s important to remember that while each business is different, so is each employee. Some people work better writing essays and others work better, when they have a more hands on approach. Below, we’ll cover the 4 main types of learning that employers typically choose when implementing training.

  1. Integrated Learning – Integrated learning is carried out in the workplace alongside their own job, this doesn’t mean dropping the training on top of their current workload. You should find time in an employee’s day to focus on their training.

  2. Self Learning – Self learning means that people can make their training work around their lifestyle. One of the most important things to remember is that training should be flexible to ensure it doesn’t take a toll on them. If you’re using training to boost morale in a workplace, then the last thing you want to do is make it seem like it’s weighing them down.

  3. Micro Learning – One of the biggest benefits of online training is it’s flexible. A lot of people suffer from short attention spans and working in a classroom or conference room could make them switch off. Carrying out micro learning will allow employees to spend 20 minutes or an hour at their own leisure to focus on their training and they can switch off whenever they start loosing interest.

  4. Skill Boost Learning – A lot of employees learn by taking a hands-on approach. If the training is closely aligned with the business or their current role, then you might find that two aspects crossover and the employee can try or see something first hand rather than just learning about it on the screen.

Investing In Your Employees Regardless of how long someone has worked for you, you should always look at how you can give back to them. Whilst everyone likes more money, it isn’t always a viable option to just dish out pay rises. However, training courses can show your employees that you care about them and their development. Whilst it might not be an initial pay boost, you could set goals or weigh it out with the benefit that new skills could lead to potential promotions.

Supporting Your Growing Business and its Future It’s not just about employees though, while the focus of the training will help to boost their skill set, it will also improve your business as well. Businesses need to have sustained growth to ensure they remain both profitable and ahead of the competition. Showing you have a developing business will help to make you more appealing to potential employees and it will also show you have a better workplace culture.

Finding The Right Business Training Courses Finding the right training courses will depend on the industry you’re based in and the skill sets your employees currently have. We currently offer a number of health and safety courses online and also provide a range of short courses; both of which are perfect for workplace training.
