How do new hires learn the ropes in your organisation? The chances are, if you're still relatively small, you don't have an all-singing all-dancing induction process lasting three months, that introduces new hires to all the departments, trains them up in your IT systems, and introduces them to the senior management team. In fact, you may feel you do not really have the time or resources to introduce them to the company's products and services, it's all hands to the pump, and everyone has more than enough to do, just doing the job themselves.
Trouble is, by not continuously developing your people's skills, you may find you're not ready for the day you need to recruit additional resources into the business.
So how do you discover the 'sweet spot' between getting the job done and ensuring your current staff are ready for the future?
We recently exhibited at the hugely successful BioTrinity 2016, Europe's leading Investment and Biopartnering conference. This flagship exhibition for the biotech industry was attended by almost a thousand delegates, all interested in various aspects of the growth of their businesses. We asked one of our favourite clients, Mike Mair, Head of Organisational Development at Bard Pharmaceuticals Ltd, to partner with us in running a workshop on developing your people without breaking the bank, or having your people out of the business and sitting in a classroom for days on end.
The workshop was livestreamed on our Facebook page and we've decided to make the recording available to others who may be interested. If you'd like to learn more about Mike's Top Ten Tips for introducing quick, cost-effective and practical learning tools into your business, please click on the link below. We hope you enjoy this video, and would love to hear from you if you have any questions or comments.
