In 2018 the U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics reported that companies with fewer than 100 employees gave only 12 minutes of manager training every six months. Organizations with 100 – 500 employees provided just 6 minutes. A long-term research project commissioned by Middlesex University for Work Based Learning found that from a 4,300 workers sample, 74% felt that they weren't achieving their full potential at work due to lack of development opportunities. With so many obstacles facing companies and their employees during this complicated time, it's imperative that leaders invest in a more holistically-confident, well-rounded, and growth-focused employee base to propel their organization through the storm — and beyond.
