Three Major Ways L&D Has an Impact on Employee Engagement

  1. Improves Employee Retention. Employees who feel valued are less likely to consider leaving an organization — investing in L&D communicates this to them. According to LinkedIn’s Workplace Learning Report (2018), 94% of employees said they would stay at a company longer if it invested in their career development. By investing in the growth of its employees — allowing them the ability to reach their personal growth goals — the company can set itself up for success as employees’ commitment to the organization and its goals grows.
  2. Cultivates Teamwork and Collaboration. Remote and hybrid work is the new normal, but it has had an enormous impact on engagement. An SHRM survey found that 77% of employees noted coworker relationships have a direct impact on their engagement at work. L&D creates opportunities for more teamwork. It also encourages the sharing of knowledge and the collaboration on tasks toward a common goal.
  3. Allows Employees Opportunities for Promotion. Effective L&D programs can properly equip employees with the necessary skills for them to excel in their roles. Culture Amp found that employees with access to the L&D they needed were 21% more engaged than those without. This is just the beginning, though; it can also give them the skills they need to transition into leadership roles. Employees who see potential for growth in their jobs are more likely to stay engaged.
