If you’re in the HR world, you’re always looking for new ways to incorporate employment experiences that will increase engagement and employee satisfaction. Consider the following ideas:

1.

Be intentional about helping Corporate and HR work together to align goals.

Do you ever feel like HR and company leadership aren’t on the same page? Your employees can tell. Take a look at your culture and find places where goals overlap, and emphasize those things.

2.

Create competencies for future organizational goals.

Look ahead – what skills and roles will you need to fill one year from now? Five years? Start planning for that now.

3.

Communicate well.

Communication is critical – and it’s more than just providing information. Be sure to listen, and help employees feel heard. Even if their ideas aren’t implemented they will take ownership in the process.

4.

Adopt gamification in training.

There’s a reason everyone is addicted to their phones these days. Incorporate challenges, level-ups, leaderboards, and encourage healthy competition when planning training events.

5.

Give a new spin to employment training: make it a benefit and perk for future employees.

Your new hires will appreciate a fun, standardized on-boarding process that sets them up for success.

6.

Create learner-centric training opportunities and compare them with content-centric training modules.

Instead of focusing on the information you need to convey, make learner experience your primary goal. You may be surprised at the outcome.

7.

Get with the times: in 2019, you must offer mobile and digital content delivery.

Not all training can be conducted remotely, but provide as much digital content as possible to keep employees engaged even when they’re off site.

While this seems like a tall-order, there are many platforms to help you adopt these strategies into your overall employment offerings. Upgrading your process using these tips could spell the difference in not only ROI, but a businesses’ bottom line as well. Happier employees work more efficiently, produce more, and offer more insights and value to a business.
