There are a number of factors that can motivate employees to work hard. A good salary, or a competitive benefits package attracts many workers. But it takes a special workplace to keep employees truly engaged and committed — to inspire them to go above and beyond the call of duty to become real superheroes on behalf of their employers.
Our own Fathom team was pleased to meet a number of these superheroes recently at the Austin Business Journal’s 2016 Best Places to Work event, sponsored in part by Fathom Corporate Training. The top 75 firms in Central Texas were recognized at this epic event attended by more than 700 people. We had a great time at the Fathom booth where we gave away 10 free training classes and other great superhero prizes.
With a growing number of Austin clients already on the Best Places to Work list, Fathom regularly works with organizations to help identify specific areas where they face internal challenges. After analyzing survey results, Fathom works with management to customize training specifically targeted at the skill areas in need of improvement. This helps them improve their standing on the Best Places to Work annual survey.
Rewarding workplaces make for more engaged workers, and clients trust Fathom training to help them build and maintain stellar workplace environments. With programs such as our Outstanding Management Skills Workshop managers learn critical supervisory and leadership skills, helping them understand how increased communication and trust contribute to long-term organizational success, unlocking the full potential of leading team members.
Fathom’s hands-on management training courses teach skills that are particularly critical for managers who are leading through rapid change, explosive growth, merger, acquisition or increased employee turnover. To create a winning workplace, managers need to build the foundational skills of communication, motivation, generational awareness, delegation, performance coaching, managing conflict and evaluation, which set the stage for team success.
Thanks again to this year’s superheroes who attended the Austin Business Journal’s 2016 Best Places to Work event. Congratulations to our big winners and to all the companies who were recognized.
We look forward to helping all of our clients uncover the potential superpowers of their workforce and use them for the good of the organization. How can we help you build a better workplace?
