It is important for employees to not only encourage and support professional growth, but also personal growth. By encouraging employees to pursue their passions and hobbies employers may benefit from happier employees. Happier employees are better employees and in the long run boost the bottom line. Personal growth can be encouraged with meetings and follow up. Employees may find that employers can add benefit to the company with one of their personal passions.

Key Takeaways:

  • And when employees feel that their leaders are overlooking their personal lives, morale, engagement, and productivity dip while stress, resentment, and turnover spike.
  • Employees who feel fulfilled in their personal lives will boost your bottom line. Happiness has been proven to play a big role in improving workplace productivity and creativity.
  • Don’t just acknowledge the fact that your employees have personal aspirations. Go out of your way to encourage them to pursue their passions.

“Professional growth opportunities help employees excel at their jobs, while personal growth opportunities help employees find more balance and fulfillment in their everyday lives.”
