In today’s competitive job market, many employers find themselves asking the question “How do I keep my employee’s satisfied?”


What’s the Secret to Retaining Top Talent?

We’ve all heard that the job market is changing. With millennial’s making up a third of the workforce and growing, according to Forbes Magazine, it’s becoming increasingly common for individuals to jump from job to job and even switch industries. In the midst of this change, many employers may wonder if training employees is a waste of time. Why would you want to spend valuable resources training someone who is just going to leave in a couple of years?

What if I were to tell you that the secret to keeping talent is fueling it, enabling your employees to learn and grow by providing them with training opportunities.


We’re Biologically Wired to Learn

As humans, we crave learning. It’s an innate survival instinct that despite our modern way of life still prevails. Whether you know it or not, your employees are already learning in the workplace every day. They’re learning about job skills, company policies and procedures, company values and colleagues, just to name a few. Why not extend this learning culture to promote employee growth through training?


Benefits of Training Your Employees

By regularly training your employees, you create a company culture that promotes growth, which comes with all sorts of great benefits:

  • Increased productivity, staff retention, and customer satisfaction.
  • Creates a growth mindset among employees, meaning they are more motivated to actively seek out new challenges and learn from their mistakes.
  • Increased creativity and innovation. Employees are less afraid to take risks with their ideas, which leads to greater success for individuals, teams and your company as a whole.

Your employees want to learn. Take advantage of it!

Tomorrow, March 15th, we will air our March 2018 Networking Technologies Live Session with Keith Bogart. This course is designed for those with absolutely no knowledge of computer networks, but who would like to learn more and possibly head down a career path working on computer networks.

 

    When:
    March 16, 2018 10 am PST/ 1 pm EST


    Instructor Info:
    This Course is taught by Keith Bogart, CCIE #4923. Keith started his networking career as customer service representative at Cisco Systems in 1996. His desire to learn more soon led him to a position as a Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) engineer on the “Dial-Access” team, and within six months he had obtained his Dial-ISP CCIE. He later became a network consulting engineer and obtained his CCNA certification while teaching the technologies to Cisco employees during his lunch breaks. Keith was the first instructor on Cisco’s TAC Training team, where he taught a wide range of internetworking topics and later developed and taught other courses such as routing protocols, LAN switching, MPLS, 802.1x, and CCNA. After almost 17 years with Cisco, Keith joined a small startup and focused on 802.11 Wi-Fi technologies, during which time he obtained his CWNA certification. He is now very happy to be working with INE as an instructor for Routing & Switching.


    Who Should Watch:
    Anyone with little to no knowledge about the IT and networking industry that would like to learn more.


    Why You Should Watch:
    This live session will allow you to find out more about what a computer network is, what types of things it can be used for, and what types of careers are available for those who want to design, install, monitor, and troubleshoot networks by asking questions, and discussing these topics with an industry expert.
