COVID-19 created a number of unprecedented challenges for you to deal with in a remarkably short amount of time. While putting business-as-usual activities on a back burner, you scrambled to set employees up with home offices, determined where to increase/decrease your focus, and made strategic decisions on investments to keep your business alive.
As you settle into your new normal, is it time for you to make strategic decisions that will help your business prosper? If yes, we recommend that you consider a focus on employee development. Here are 3 reasons:
- For the past year, employees have scrambled with their employers to keep the business going and are settling into the new routine. As employers are thinking once again about their next moves, it is important to invest in employee development to create loyalty and increase retention.
- Skilled employees are more valuable during uncertain times. They work more independently, offer more innovative solutions, and are better equipped to handle challenges as they arise.
- Many companies are relaunching training initiatives. Keeping yours on hold can leave your company behind the curve and catching up later can be difficult and costly.
Employee Training in the COVID-19 Era
Going back to your old training methods will not cut it. It is difficult to get everyone into the same training room, travel restrictions are still in place, and you do not want your employees taking additional time away from their core activities.

With ProductivityNOW, your employees can access the content they want, or their managers can set up learning paths and monitor their progress. Either way, your employees will gain the software skills they need to help your company prosper long into the future.
