Very often we hear the phrase "People are the company's greatest asset." Undoubtedly, the team is both the most valuable and the most challenging asset, especially in companies like ours that rely on intellect rather than renewable or non-renewable resources or access management.
Over the past few years, the MEK team has grown significantly. As the number of employees increases, there is a need to change the approach to personnel management. There is a growing need for continuous training, skills development, motivation, and maintaining comfortable working conditions for the staff.
Employee development is one of the key tasks in the company's strategy. Equipped with new knowledge, an employee can generate more new ideas and make the company more competitive.
Recently, events we have witnessed in the country and the world have influenced human resource management strategies in companies. Restrictions associated with the pandemic have practically halted the training processes of our technical specialists with equipment manufacturers. Remote learning technologies have come to the rescue, which do not provide 100% immersion in the subject matter but have helped maintain the qualifications of technical specialists at an adequate level. In addition, self-learning cultivated and supported by the company has also helped us maintain a decent level of competencies.
We hope that the period of widespread restrictions is behind us, so we are resuming the practice of offline staff training, including abroad.
Training and personnel development are mutually beneficial processes for both the company and the employees. As a rule, when a person acquires new knowledge, they feel their significance and become more confident in their competencies. As a result, such employees experience job satisfaction and are less prone to burnout, making them more effective.
Any manager or business owner wants to see people in their team who are willing to learn and self-educate. In our rapidly changing world, the proverb "To stay in place, you have to run very fast" is highly relevant. Employees who understand the meaning of this proverb are the most valuable and promising in terms of professional and career growth.
Working with personnel, getting to know new people, and studying the labor market, I conclude that now is the time for young, ambitious, and dynamically developing individuals who thirst for new knowledge, skills, and competencies and do everything possible to acquire them.
I am confident that both our experienced employees and the new young talents who have joined us, with their thirst for knowledge and professional growth, will take our company to an even higher level!
