How To Create Great Employees: It is The Invisible Economic Strain In Our Workforce that you can change!
In this Episode Listen to Michelle Talk about this topic. Create great employees: In a labor market that is at a historic low, businesses are seeing a high rate of turnover and even ghosting in the workplace. It is a costly trend. Companies are seeing the value in shifting how they train to retain their employees. It is far less expensive to invest in quality training. A community mindset work culture that promotes employee retention is best; rather than continually training new employees. Also, this nurtured environment promotes employee’s self-worth. The end result is better work engagement and deeper relationships with fellow colleagues.
The result is better morale, work productivity and lower employee turnover rates!
The positive workplace connections and better knowledge base for the demands of their job has the potential for big payoffs. It is a benefit for the company in reduced hiring costs as well. This creates a win-win scenario. Talks of expanding apprenticeship programs are on the rise.
In order for the efforts to be successful, it is important to understand what challenges this group faces. As a result, this will ensure quality training for the companies that want to train and hire them.
According to research, there are approximately 20 million college students who entered college in the fall of 2018. 19.4% self-reported having a disability. This number has nearly doubled from 10 years ago and the impact on the educational system has been tremendous. Colleges across the U.S. are developing programs to meet the needs of these diverse students. The most prevalent disability is ADHD, a neurologically based disorder.
Of the students surveyed, 79% of the students who reported a disability listed ADHD as their challenge.
As these students enter our workforce, it would be beneficial for us to help them transition with strong skillsets. Often, these neurologically diverse groups need specific guidance and training. Unfortunately, skill sets may be assumed and overlooked for the average employee. This invisible disability flies under the radar and yet has a very impactful effect on job success.
