In today’s world, hiring a qualified and skilled candidate is only one piece of the puzzle when it comes to getting the most value out of your employees. Here are some great tech tips for managers guiding their employees to reach their full potential.
Teach New Skills & Track Progress
Technology today allows employees to not only develop new skills, but also allows managers to keep track of them to ensure they’re being utilized and that the employee is continually learning. Mobile learning, in particular, has become quite popular with HR leaders training their workforce, allowing employees to access education tools on their cellular devices.
Mobile learning gives employees the flexibility to access information anytime and anywhere, helping them take charge of their training at their own pace. Thanks to workforce management technologies, managers can then monitor and track employee training so they can stay up to date on any new skills the employee developed and if their training makes them eligible for promotions or additional projects.
Consider People Analytics
People analytics is used to analyze collective data on employee processes, obstacles, and operations. The main function of people analytics is to combine employee performance with organizational goals and reliable data to ultimately increase the overall success of the company. This can help managers develop a better understanding as to how the current processes are tracking and the strengths and weaknesses of their staff.
Take Note of Employee Experience
Employee experience is arguably one of the most important parts of getting the most value out of your employees. According to LinkedIn’s Global Talent Trends Report, employee experience otherwise known as ‘EX’ is one of the top trends on how companies are retaining talent. Employee experience covers everything an employee feels, observes and interacts with.
Technology can help managers gain key insights into how to improve the employee experience by monitoring what employees are working on, their processes, and whether or not they are working effectively and efficiently. This can also prove to be useful when it comes to tracking employee training as well.
Use these tips to get the most value out of your employees and benefit your business’ bottom line.
