Employee Development

An attribute of a great boss is a focus on employee development. It should be just as important as self-development. Employee Development involves the objective assessment of an employee’s skills, abilities, past performance, and a genuine concern in his career aspirations and goals.  This means listening to what the employee’s career aspirations are, partnering with him to develop a plan, and most importantly, helping to execute on the plan. Developing one’s staff can have a greater impact on retention than compensation, and contributes to the success and sustainability of the business.
