A 2019 report from Deloitte concurs: “One of the biggest challenges we identified this year is the need to improve what is often called the ‘employee experience,’ ” with 84% of their respondents rating it urgent or important.
Boost EX with training
Training is a huge factor in creating a positive employee experience.
According to the Deloitte report, employee dissatisfaction stems from feelings that workers lack autonomy to make decisions, lack opportunities for internal mobility or to take on new challenges at work, and lack adequate tools or technology to excel at their work. Only 43% of Deloitte respondents felt that their organizations provided workers “the right opportunities for growth” — including on-the-job training opportunities.
The report’s authors conclude that “understanding and deriving meaning” from their work is essential to positive employee experience.
Training can change all of that.
LinkedIn’s 2019 Workplace Learning Report found that employees who had frequent opportunities to learn at work were “more likely to know where they want to go in their career” (74%) and “more likely to have found purpose in their work” (48%).
