Many factors these days apply to how a person can and cannot conduct themselves in the workplace. Better yet, what benefits they may or may not want to take advantage of! Keeping employees up to date on industry-specific news is key and workplace seminars are a great way to provide information and education to your employees...and more! There are many benefits of workplace seminars, and we will touch upon several right now.
The benefits of workplace seminars don't stop at just being able to provide a large group of employees with quantities of information simultaneously. And, they don't have to be on dry topics like sexual harassment policies or updates to OSHA requirements (although these are definitely important!). You can provide your employees with seminars relating to how to deal with workplace stress, ways to save for retirement, being more environmentally friendly, and even educate them on adjusting the humidity levels in their homes to create more comfortable living spaces.
Aside from being able to provide your employees with information and education on an infinite number of topics, other benefits of workplace seminars include empowering your employees to take charge of their position in the company through communication and interaction with their workplace peers. Seminars can strengthen an employee's feeling of occupational well-being and make them feel like they are truly part of a team with a purpose- especially when seminars include question and answer sessions or interactive tasks and activities that encourage participation. This can also improve workplace relations between employees and allow for closer and more productive working relationships.
Important benefits of workplace seminars:
• Improved communication between employer and employee.
• Strengthening of working relationships between employees.
• Educational opportunities for employees regarding changes in company policies.
• Employee awareness of issues that affect their health, happiness, and productivity in the workplace.
• Ability to impart workplace-related information to large groups of employees at one time.
• Empowerment of employees with regard to their workplace status and esteem.
Another of the key benefits of workplace seminars is that content-laden seminars can be tailored to meet a company's specific needs. Some agencies offer speakers or "do it yourself" kits for presenting seminars to employees. However, there are FREE options out there. One organization, SOFA, The Society for Financial Awareness, offers free financial literacy workshops to companies, groups, and organizations. There are over 30 educational topics to choose from, no selling at these workshops and an abundance of speakers around America who are ready to talk to groups for no cost. This option raises employee morale, satisfies compliance needs for the 404C ERISA mandate, and overall creates a fun, informative event for your employees!
As you can see, the benefits of workplace seminars are certainly not just for education or cut-and-dried information. You can make them engaging, interactive, informative, and memorable - guaranteeing that your employees will not so easily dismiss or "disremember" the information provided to them.
