An integral part of any organization’s success is the ability to recognize the importance of employee needs. More specifically, you must address the needs of your workforce while aligning the goals of the employee with those of the organization.
It is important to understand and utilize critical concepts such as Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Herzberg’s Motivational Factors as well. What motivates people to perform to the best of their ability? Furthermore, how do we support employees in achieving self-actualization while aligning the goals of each employee with those of the organization?
It is by no means a simple task. However, by avoiding these issues you are ignoring the untapped potential within your organization.
There are several basic considerations. For each employee, where do they show promise and interest? Some have a strong sense of achievement. Others only seek to be the best at what they currently do. You must also thoroughly understand the strengths and weaknesses of each employee. How do these strengths fit into the organization? Can the weaknesses be addressed through training? These are difficult questions.
Even organizations which constantly focus on employee development, and how it fits within the organization, are faced with another complicated question. Once we understand the needs, motivational factors, strengths, and weaknesses of the individual as well as identifying how we can fully utilize and develop employees, how can we accurately predict future performance? Training, although a very wise investment, is costly. Can we predict with some level of confidence that our training dollars and employee development efforts will yield the results we hope for?
We offer a variety of tools and methods to help answer all of these questions. For assistance please contact us.
