Successful organisations help their employees improve themselves constantly by providing them opportunities for growth through training. An important part of training is the willingness to learn. Their willingness to undergo training helps them gain maximum benefits from training, leading to growth and success for them and the company.
How to Motivate Employees for Training
Motivating employees for training ensures that they are receptive and willing to learn and implement their training. Employees can be prepared and motivated to receive training using these methods:
1. Specifying Benefits
The greatest incentive for a person for performing a task is the fulfilment of a short-term gain. Therefore, employees must be informed about the benefits the training will provide them both in the short term and the long term. Specifying the benefits will give them a realistic goal that is achievable, and will help them become eager to gain new knowledge and skills to achieve those goals.
2. Offering Incentives
An incentive does not necessarily need to be monetary. A day off, a special day, or an evening of fun games helps employees stay motivated and positive. Any group activity also helps encourage team spirit, which leads to better cooperation among employees.
3. Taking their Opinion
Taking the opinion of employees before selecting a training program for them helps build their self-esteem and improves trust. Even if the final decision is contrary to the wishes of the employees, they will be motivated to undergo the training if they are convinced of the benefits of the training program for them and the company. Considering their opinion is, therefore, an important step in improving their self-worth and keeping them motivated about training.
The Importance of Informing about the Outcomes of the Training
If employees are not aware of the precise and possible outcomes of a training program, they will be less motivated to make the effort to learn. A manager’s role is crucial. The manager must inform employees about all possible outcomes of the training before the training starts so that they have a realistic goal that they know will improve their professional worth.
The training outcomes will assist with the betterment of both their professional and personal life, as both are closely related. It will provide employees an incentive to receive continuous training, and enough motivation to engage in self-learning to accelerate growth.
As professionals need to undergo frequent training, they must be motivated to achieve more from training, and also self-motivate and self-train. As all our efforts must result in a gain, it is essential to provide employees with a real and clear aim that the training will achieve for them.
