Answer to Question #75231 in Other Management for Simone
How can you, in a supervisory role, contribute to the development of learning opportunities (both formal and informal) for employees? Discuss in 50 to 80 words.
Investing in academic programs for employees is a formal method of influencing the development of talents within the organization. There is a wide range of informal learning opportunities for employees. Engaging people outside their job functions teaches to take on new responsibilities. Such training develops an understanding of organization’s work from different points of view. One more way to stimulate employees’ development is coaching. This activity stimulates learning from expert’s experience. Challenging assignments help to improve skills and knowledge too.
