Employee Development

“Employee development activities help in the growth and development of employees, who are the true assets of an organization. You need to respect your employees for them to feel motivated and develop a sense of loyalty and attachment towards the organization” (MSG Experts, 2013).


This week’s primary focus is on Employee Development and its importance in the workplace. There are several benefits for both the employee and employer including more effective time management, increased skills and experience, greater employee retention and greater profit. This week’s assignment includes two parts: 1) A PowerPoint presentation for my organization that includes development approaches that I would like to see implemented, and 2) My own personal Employee Development Plan.

  1. Hi Lori,

    I found it interesting that you pointed out employee engagement in your power point presentation on employee development. I can definitely see how employee development helps to support employee engagement and that point along with the other benefits that you discussed presented a good argument for investing in employee development. Additionally, the approaches of investing in tuition reimbursement, job rotation, and mentoring are excellent choices for employee development initiatives and ones that could be reasonably implemented if the organization had concerns over resources and costs to proceed. I also liked how concise your employee development plan for yourself was. Your descriptions of how you will proceed show that you are clearly committed to working with your manager on making sure your development needs are met.
