Monday Motivation: Offer a Cross-Training Program
E-TIP OF THE WEEK: Cross-trainers aren’t just running shoes anymore!
Offer a cross-training program to all employees. Cross-training provides the opportunity for employees to develop their knowledge, skills, and abilities and improve their chances of advancement. This will increase staff members’ effectiveness and motivation.
This also benefits the company as more individuals are trained in various functions. Vacation coverage can be arranged from a pool of cross-trained individuals, or promotions and vacancies could be filled from this pool as well.
You may want to consider the minimum and maximum amount of time each employee can spend cross-training. There may be other considerations, such as safety requirements, confidentiality, and formal training requirements.
