Creative Employee Training Ideas
Create a Company University
Collectively, your employees are a treasure trove of information on topics that would likely surprise you, so why not let them share their knowledge with each other? SnagAJob.com, a $21.8 million job-search site in Glen Allen, Virginia, offered employees 62 classes through its eclectic program, Snagger U. Classes, which are taught by in-house experts, take place during the workday and last for an hour or two. Eight to 12 employees typically show up for each class. Topics covered ranged from finance fundamentals and HTML to Texas Hold ‘Em poker and women’s self-defense. An employee that continues to learn is a more engaged employee.
