Promoting your best staff to better paid jobs higher up the management structure is a great way to run any business: it will create real loyalty and also promote a message that hard work in your organisation will be recognised and rewarded.
Those more senior roles will very often involve managing other people, and it’s at your peril that you as an employer neglect the fact that the skills of leadership are not necessarily acquired without some training. Management is often much under-valued in the workplace but when done badly, it can cost a business thousands of pounds in high staff turnover and even poor customer service – for example, if messages on a company’s strategic direction are not correctly filtered through to the entire workforce.
And that’s where an Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) course comes in – by sending recently promoted staff on one of our courses, you will reap great benefits for your organisation by ensuring that everyone feels valued.
At Infused Learning we offer level 3 and 4 Leadership & Management qualifications – so what will your staff learning by going on one?
- Structural change – if you need to implement any changes in your company, be they budgetary cuts, redundancy, or a change in direction, you need great managers who will communicate these messages in as positive way as possible and ensure staff loyalty is retained. Course participants will also learn to avoid any legal issues that can arise simply because of poor communication.
- Improving productivity – you need all your line managers to be great team leaders. Our ILM courses help give people the skills to encourage people in the right way, and also to run effective teams that run as efficiently as possible.
- Planning ahead – a great manager doesn’t just react to the day-to-day, they can plan ahead to ensure the smooth running of an organisation. These are the skills that managers learn on a level 4 ILM course.
- Loyalty – Making a small investment into staff training sends out a great message that you really value their work and are prepared to put money into enhancing their skills and CV. It’s likely you will be rewarded with their loyalty, which saves you the headache and expense of extra recruitment.
So don’t delay – send your freshly fledged managers on one of our ILM courses today! You’ll really notice the benefits.
