7 Best Ways of Learning and Development Can Foster Employee Engagement

by Shivam Verma Hello World
Engaging employees is a very important part for any company– but it is not always an easy task. In fact, it’s multifaceted, deeply cultural, and likely to keep changing as the time goes on. Many companies go for employee engagement training to fulfil their requirements.  

What makes happy employees?
Proper and suitable conditions and a friendly environment in the company sometimes make employees happy at the work station.  Many of the experts have worked on it and found many vital reasons regarding this. One of the experts Sameer Shaikh has also found it perfect. There have recently been some fantastic papers that have carried out extensive research about employees engaged. Here’s a detail of the findings:

Employees who feel engaged, feel:
  • Empowered
  • Involved
  • Consulted
  • Supported
  • Valued
  • A sense of belonging.


Here are the most important tips on how learning and development teams can drive engagement levels and maximise their business profits.

1. Put brand and values at the heart of what you do
Companies need to provide something for people to connect with and feel part of the work with business leaders to identify a clear internal brand and set of values that people can relate to and engage with. Put brand and values at the heart of what you do is one of the most important facts in this. 

2. Pinpoint your desired learning culture
Jumping into a new technology strategy without considering the big picture can end up with an engagement backfire. Pinpointing your desired learning culture is also an important point in learning and development of the employee. 

3. Make technology the enabler, not the starting point
Since ‘meaningful’ work is important to employees – make sure you’re meaningful with your learning technology and design, and have long term goals in mind.

4. Build trust and learn from your audience
  • Listening – Whilst you may have great data to tell you what content is popular, nothing beats getting out and asking questions 
  • Responding – Modern technology enables you to be ultra-responsive to feedback
  • Involving – Encourage social and informal learning through your learning technology strategy, and involve your audience by re-sharing, crowd sourcing content
  • Empowering – Enable your audience to forge their own learning and development path, with your support.

5. Invest in leaders and managers
Investments in leaders and managers can give good benefits to the organisations. Managers can make or break staff happiness and retention and that is why it is the key factor in this.

6. Think learners, think consumers
Employee learning is becoming more “consumer like”, where audiences search out and choose content for themselves. Think learners and think about consumers whenever you plan anything.

7. Be social
To engage employees, we hear that organisations need to encourage more collaboration, involvement, consultation, and support. Being social is one of the most important ways in this learning and development process.
