Thinking of ways to engage your employees? Consider engaging them through learning opportunities.

Identify the learning needs of your employees, and introduce some of the following employee engagement initiatives to meet those needs.

Peer-to-Peer Sharing
You can organise a sharing session in which everyone be given a chance to present on certain themes and topics on a rotational basis. This promotes mutual and continuous learning among the group. It may also help to bolster the presenter’s confidence in public speaking.

Mentoring
You can assign mentors to younger employees in your organisation so they have a go-to person for advice or for clarification on any question they might face during work. It helps the employees to adapt quickly into the organisational culture, while ensuring the employees feel guided and cared for.

Self-directed learning
You can create a learning list for employees to follow through at their own time. The learning can take various formats like online tutorial, learning from colleagues, workshops, reading, etc. This allows the employees to take ownership of their own learning, and in the process have the opportunity to engage with various stakeholders in the organisation.
