How to get back into the swing of things after some time-off
For many people in South Africa, January is one of the toughest months. For one thing, you’ve blown your budget and your end-of-month pay check seems very far away. But more than that, you’ve had the most amazing holiday, and while you’re recharged and full of positive energy, the thought of getting back to the daily grind is tough. And research by health and vitality organisation Arbo Unie supports this, showing that after a prolonged holiday period employees have less career satisfaction and are less involved than they were beforehand.
Many employees also think about their career and the goals they want to achieve while on vacation. So respond to this upfront, by giving your team the space to develop themselves professionally when they get back, by investing in their personal development. Give them access to online training to help them realise their long-cherished ambitions. Discuss their learning objectives with them, and which courses are appropriate.
After a long holiday, many people want to wipe their slate clean and start afresh – just think of how many New Year’s resolutions are started in this way. But where do you start, and what is the best thing to start with first? SkillsTown has a number of practical courses that teaches employees to tackle their tasks efficiently, plan activities effectively and make sure that their daily to-do list is never too overwhelming.
As an organisation, you can even choose to bundle specific training courses together into a theme, making it easy for your people to quickly and easily find this content in an easy-to-use, online, learning environment.
