A key part of Sprout's services is solving HR problems, which includes supporting employee learning and development. By doing so, employers invest more time growing their businesses and improving their company culture.
Cultivating a strong work culture has become more critical than ever, with organizations facing challenges brought on by the Great Resignation and the war for talent.
Recognizing Employers for Great Employee Experiences
Amidst current hiring and retention challenges, we’ve seen employers rise above these obstacles by putting their workforces first. We’ve created the Certified Great Employer campaign to acknowledge these proactive organizations that strive for the best for their employees.
Through this campaign, companies that have invested in learning and development systems become certified Learning and Development Advocates–an achievement that demonstrates their commitment to professional growth and development.
Being a Learning & Development Advocate: What’s It About?
At Sprout, we’ve defined various career paths for employees who want to gain new skills or become effective leaders. As a result, everyone can feel more satisfied in their roles and motivated to contribute to the organization’s growth and success.
You can use our customizable and integrated performance management solution to help your workforce grow. But beyond that, you get a learning management system that emphasizes the importance of employee development in your company.
