STAFF DEVELOPMENT

Individuals in an organization form its vital resource and must be valued, nurtured and retained.
Employees are the most valuable assets and truly the backbone of an organization. Every employee in
his/her own way contributes towards the success or failure of an organization. Without employees in an
organization, even the most powerful machinery with the latest technology would not function.
Employees should not treat their organization as a mere source of earning money.

Remember, your job is not just to come in the morning, leave in the evening and receive your paycheck. On the other hand employers should not treat their employees as slaves. Employers must invest their time and resources in training and developing their workforce for them to become indispensable resources later on. Employees should be developed and prepared to face even the worst situations.

More on Staff Development

Employee development is a joint initiative of the employee as well as the employer to upgrade the
existing skills and knowledge of an individual.
It is of utmost importance for employees to keep
themselves abreast with the latest developments in the industry to survive the fierce competition. Believe
me, if you are not aware of what is happening around you, even before you realize you would be out of
the game. As they say there is really no age limit for education. Upgrading knowledge is essential to live
with the changes of time. Employee development goes a long way in training, sharpening the skills of an
employee and upgrading his/her existing knowledge and abilities. In a layman’s language, employee
development helps in developing and nurturing employees for them to become reliable resources and
eventually benefit the organization. Employees also develop a sense of attachment towards the
organization as a result of employee development activities.


Organizations must encourage their employees to participate in employee development activities.
Employees also must take skill enhancement or employee development activities seriously. Do not attend
trainings or other employee development activities just because your Boss has asked you to do so. Don’t
just attend trainings to mark your attendance. You just cannot use same ideas or concepts everywhere.
It is excellent if you know Microsoft Excel or for that matter Microsoft Word. Remember simply knowing
few basic functions of MS excel would not help you in the long run. It might help you in the short run.
Excel is not just to store your required data. There are many other formulae and advanced applications
which one should be aware of.


Enhance your skills with time. Employee development can also be defined as a process where the
employee with the support of his/her employer undergoes various training programs to enhance his/her
skills and acquire new knowledge and learnings. Every organization follows certain processes which not
only help in the professional but also personal growth of an employee. Employee development activities
help an employee to work hard and produce quality work.
