Investing in Employees

Book Description

Every company wants brilliant employees who are motivated to do a good job, and the best way to achieve that goal is to ensure your staff is well trained. Doing so rewards your company with excellent productivity, avoids mistakes made in ignorance, and improves employee retention. But it’s one thing to say you want to help your people improve their skill sets, and another to actually make it happen.

What’s the best way for a company to provide the training its tech employees need? In this ebook, author Esther Schindler explores the subject through more than two dozen interviews with experts in professional development, career management, and employee counseling, as well as company executives and tech employees who have experienced the training process firsthand.

You’ll examine employer, employee, and consultant perspectives on:

  • Investing and retraining employees
  • Building an efficient training process
  • Choosing the best training medium
  • Who chooses the training—and who gets trained
  • The process of setting training budgets
  • Methods for tracking the success of training programs
