WorkLife’s strategy of career coaching via upskilling not only helps increase employee engagement and productivity—while decreasing turnover—but also fills gaps in the skills of your workforce.
In a recent survey of 34,000 people, dissatisfaction with career development ranked highest in reasons for leaving a company. Yet, only half of workers report that their companies provide upskilling and career development opportunities that actually meet employees’ needs for advancement.
At the same time, a statewide shortage in middle-skilled workers means you have a limited pool of new candidates to fill positions. By providing access to career pathways and skills development to your existing workforce, you have the opportunity to overcome both challenges.
When you proactively invest in your workforce’s skills, you can increase employee satisfaction, engagement, and retention. And, it’s a lot more cost-effective to train employees and keep them in your organization than it is to search for, hire, and train new workers.
