Good training and developmentare essential to get the best outcome for organisations and the workforce. If training and development are not offered then staff are unlikely to perform at their best.

Training and developmentarrangements can help an organisation:

  • motivate staff
  • check that all staff are making valuable contributions towards organisational goals
  • develop staff
  • recognise and acknowledge the good work of employees
  • deliver tasks and projects quickly and to required standards
  • spot and improve poor performance.

How an employee carries out their work can be as important as the end result. Behaviours (sometimes called competencies or standards) focus on how an employee should approach the work and duties that their role requires, and this is supported by appropriate training and development in each role.

Why should you develop your staff?

Individuals will bring different skills and behaviours to a job when they are recruited, so regular development can help them master their new responsibilities.

Even once fully trained in their role, further development is important. Offering staff suitable development opportunities can help you to:

  • keep them motivated in their work
  • build loyalty towards your organisation
  • provide them with the skills to progress their career
  • fill identified skill gaps within your organisation
  • help the organisation stay ahead of your competitors.
  • Help retain the best employees.

Personal development plans

A personal development plan is where your employee’s development needs are set out. The plan need not be complicated but should include: 

  • the development needed
  • how the development will be achieved
  • when the development will be achieved
  • how the achievement will be measured.

It should be agreed between the manager and employee.

Performance conversations provide a good opportunity to talk about training needs, relevant interests and agree a personal development plan. Future conversations should then check on the employee’s progress.

The development plan could also be included as part of the employees record of performance.
