Enable your employees and freelancers to gain higher level professional awards (Levels 4-7) that show their current skills and knowledge gained through working?It can be a tough call for many creative SME organisations to manage and develop employee performance, potential and improve employee satisfaction and engagement. Period. Investing in the learning and professional development of your employees can be time consuming, costly and often not meet commercial, specific individual, or team learning needs. Often many qualifications and types of learning are required to enable employees and teams to be the best they can be. Not good news budget wise, or from a return on investment perspective as every penny counts.
We often focus on skills gaps and uncover what employees don’t know as development needs, (not exactly motivational) but have no way of formally acknowledging what they do know, their strengths and how they contribute at work towards your organisation achieving, or exceeding its commercial priorities. The link between improved expertise and organisational performance is well known. It’s also a well documented fact that employees whose skills and expertise are recognised feel valued, supported and achieve more which is the ideal in terms of improving employee performance and engagement.
“Connect the dots between individual roles and the goals of the organization. When people see that connection, they get a lot of energy out of work. They feel the importance, dignity, and meaning in their job.” – Ken Blanchar
“Employee engagement is the emotional commitment the employee has to the organisation and its goals.” – Kevin Kruse
The good news is that CLOCK will provide a way for you to do just that. Introducing the CLOCK qualifications for your staff as part of your learning and talent development curriculum will give you both a universal and specific process for your employees to gain formal recognition of what they already know. Through the completion of higher level professional awards, (Levels 4-7) your staff will be able to demonstrate their current skills and knowledge gained through working.
We can train your staff to be Internal Mentors
We can even train your expert employees to be technical Peer 2 Peer Mentors and Peer Reviewers internally so you don’t incur an ongoing cost for internal verification. We can validate them and benchmark them against their peers in other organisations and countries; an interesting development opportunity in its’ own right for them as future internal technical experts. A great way to provide technical career development as part of succession planning for those with the potential for roles that are critical to the business.
