Want to create a culture in your small business where staff stay as eager to learn as they were in Kindergarten? Here are 3 things you can do:
Encourage intellectual discussions as water cooler talk. Do your employees spend many of their breaks gossiping about celebrities? This isn't a bad thing, but unless you work in Hollywood, not beneficial to company learning. Spend time talking with employees in their down time, bringing up stimulating topics related to your field. Put relevant industry newspapers and magazines near staff break areas to encourage stimulating conversation.
Give your employees a learning allowance. One of the most challenging aspects of learning is that it can cost money. Going to conventions, classes, and lectures adds up quickly. Give your employees a quarterly annual financial allowance they can use on company relevant training they choose. Allow them to take off work periodically for education opportunities without having to use vacation time.
