Book Title: Employee Development on a Shoestring
With training budgets slashed and organizations struggling to do more with less, many employees as well as those responsible for their development are challenged to find ways to address employee development needs. While classroom and online training is a popular and first-in-mind development method, it can be costly and complex. In addition to possibly being out of reach for budgetary and cost-to-productivity reasons, even when training is available it may not be the only or the best way to address learning needs. Explore other, non-training ways to develop employees on a tight budget. Consider the pros and cons of various non-training development methods, the requirements and specifications of three specific and unusual employee development ideas, and strategies for implementing new employee development methods for your clients and/or your employees.
