Corporate Learning Solutions - Greg Kinnaird - Developing High Potential Leaders - Ageing Workplace Population - Strategies for ageing workplaces - Building Your Toolbox

Building Your Toolbox

Why is Building Your Toolbox important?

As Baby Boomers leave the workforce, there will be a natural fall in levels of skill, knowledge and creativity.

Corporate Learning Solutions - Greg Kinnaird - Developing High Potential Leaders - Strategy - Got time for chat - Building Your Toolbox

This creates both a challenge and opportunity to organisation’s structures, technology, processes and people when it comes to building your toolbox. 

So the big question, is how do you keep people motivated?

 

The Top 5 Motivators:

These will help you leader your team through this transition:

1. Development of self

2. Being recognised and valued

3. Being kept informed and involved

4. Having variety and interesting work

5. Having pay linked to performance

Attracting, developing and retaining innovative people is all about creating a working environment that inspires and motivates people. It is about matching their personal needs to that of the organisation.

With an Ageing Workplace Population, the “sunset employees” are often looking for family friendly, flexible working environments. There is also a strong need for a sense of belonging. Most employees spend more time with their workplace colleagues than their family.

Maximise your employee retention by ensuring your workplace addresses these top 5 motivators.

Toolbox for High Potential Leaders

Corporate Learning Solutions - Greg Kinnaird - Developing High Potential Leaders - Toolbox - Building Your ToolboxThe main issue is that most Baby Boomers are in Senior Management roles and there is no formal succession plan in place.

That is why Corporate Learning Solutions has developed it’s Toolbox for High Potential Leaders so as to assist leaders mentor their rising stars effectively by creating an interactive environment to share their experience and expertise.

To access The Toolbox for High Potential – Click Here!

 Development opportunities are vital

Corporate Learning Solutions - Greg Kinnaird - Developing High Potential Leaders - Network - Got time for chat - Building Your ToolboxManager’s today are focusing on streamlining workplace systems and processes and will learn not to become as reliant on people to get the job done, hence the importance of building your tool.

Both the employers and employees need to be able to identify development opportunities and to identify positive leaders who will help them achieve their goals.

Businesses flexible enough to cater for all their staff would weather any Ageing Workplace Population issues better than those that use traditional human resource models involving policies applied to the entire workforce.

Many companies aren’t aware of the skills that many of their employees have. An audit of those skills may reveal that there are people already in the organization with the skills that the company is looking for.

It is vital that all workplace leaders understand the importance of consulting with the staff, especially Gen-Y’s, because they tend to have a natural willingness to embrace technology solution as a drive for change.
