Why Staff Development Planning Makes Good Business Sense
by Célia Geraldo
Having been part of a layoff three years ago, I have had first-hand experience with perceiving myself as having failed. This circumstance, compounded with a lack of employer input as to why the layoff happened, can cause almost anyone to feel inadequate. Having worked for many years in the training and development industry, my greatest asset has been (and still is) understanding the needs of adult learners. I have had many students in my classes who wanted to improve their skills in order to be better at their jobs. Many others were there because industry changes caused them to need to further develop their skills. Others, experiencing layoffs, were developing their skills to give themselves an edge as they looked for a new job.

Prior to a layoff, it can be very confusing if employer feedback is positive, and then suddenly one is "given the pink slip." This was my situation. After my layoff in an industry completely foreign to me (the oil and gas industry), I returned to adult training and development and felt much more at home, once again. Looking back, one major factor stands out in my mind regarding the position I had had: how little coaching and training I received. Training and coaching might have changed how things turned out.

staff development

Everyone who has been part of a layoff will say that they "felt it coming." Many follow their instincts and prepare for it, perhaps by finding something new and leaving before they are let go. "Dissatisfaction with some employee-development efforts appears to fuel many early exits." (Hamori, Cao, et al., 2012) In a 2012 study, when asked what their employers might offer them to help them grow in their jobs, young managers reported that, "companies generally satisfy their needs for on-the-job development and that they value these opportunities, which include high-visibility positions and significant increases in responsibility." Unfortunately, however, something else that they value highly, but say they aren’t getting, is "formal development, such as training, mentoring, and coaching". (Hamori, J.Cao, et al., 2012)
