We Are Not Teachers, So How Can We Train And Encourage Our Staff To Learn And Grow?

Educating and training employees happens in the workplace on a daily basis. It refers to not only training new employees but also providing development programs to your current employees, as well as teaching them new strategies time after time. However, not everybody is specialised in educating or training others. 

Here, we explore strategies managers can try to successfully train employees. 

How Can We Best Educate Our Employees?


Training sessions are one of the most crucial factors in educating your employees. It is not just about holding one session when you recruit a new employee. Hosting those sessions regularly is very beneficial for both your employees and your business. 

The research published in 2011 suggests that effective training at a workplace play a vital role in increasing employees’ job proficiency. Hence, managers should plan training sessions that cover the values, skills, and knowledge your employees need while working for your company. By having those sessions regularly, you can provide your employees with opportunities to review important information and self-evaluate their progress, while you can also give some updates on a regular basis.  


In terms of the skills and knowledge which require specific explanations from professionals, you can let your employees with specialised experiences be the trainers for others. This way, your employees are able to share their specialties while building a closer relationship with their colleagues.

Furthermore, you should frequently seek opinions from your employees regarding their need for training sessions. This is because your perception of your employees’ needs and what they actually want to learn and improve might be slightly different. Therefore, as a manager, you should get your employees more involved in both the planning and training processes of those sessions. 


In addition to the strategies explained above, Forbes introduces a great idea of training employees, which is ‘cross-training workers’. You can train your employees to work in a different role from their usual job in order for them to be more flexible and acquire different perspectives and insights into their work. Through cross-training, the job operation is likely to become more smooth and thoughtful to other roles in the company. Also, you may be able to discover your employees’ hidden abilities while cross-training for other types of jobs, which would widen their future career paths. 


Team building activities are a great way for you to educate your employees and encourage their development. Unique Team Building offers numerous types of exercises to help you and your employees develop skills together. We design a unique experience just for you according to your needs and wants. Through our activities, you can learn skills including communication, collaboration, problem-solving, conflict resolution, creativity, and so on.

Educating your employees is strongly associated with upgrading your corporation as a whole. The more satisfied your employees are with adequate training programs within their company, the more effectively they are able to work with a positive mindset. In order to conduct a successful training session, you don’t have to be a teacher. Instead, you can be a guiding light that gives your employees opportunities to learn and develop the unique potentials they already have.
