More Than Just Onboarding: Shaping a Culture of Continuous Growth For Your Most Valuable Assets

The traditional approach to employee onboarding and training—often limited to the first week of employment—falls short in fostering a culture of continuous learning and engagement. As leaders in our industry, redefining the employee experience is imperative, turning it into a journey that extends far beyond the initial orientation period. We are in the people business, and investing in our people and team members to recognize and elevate the employee and member experience is critical.

Employee Experience Requires Commitment from Every Level of the Club

Continuous training and engagement aren’t just buzzwords but strategic imperatives that drive employee success. In an era where the half-life of skills is rapidly shrinking, the ability to learn and adapt has become critical. However, the journey towards creating an always-learning culture and a culture of excellence is multifaceted, requiring commitment from every level of the club.

The first year of employment is critical in shaping an employee’s perception and engagement with the club. A comprehensive 365-day onboarding and training framework coupled with a strategic employee experience program for new and existing employees ensures that employees are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge and are deeply engaged with the club’s values, mission, and strategic goals. This approach includes regular check-ins, on-the-job coaching, fine-tuning key skills, employee journey mapping, daily reinforcement, and personalized development plans.

Ongoing Training Is Critical in Successful Employee Experiences

The journey doesn’t end after the first year for new and existing employees. Ongoing training and employee experience plans are vital to keeping your team motivated and aligned with the members’ evolving needs. This includes opportunities for upskilling, cross-functional training, leadership development programs, employee recognition, and continuous improvement and learning milestones. Recognizing and rewarding continuous improvement and learning milestones are crucial elements of this ongoing journey.

Redefining the employee experience through continuous training and engagement is not a one-time effort but a strategic commitment to the growth and development of every individual within the organization. By fostering a culture of excellence, supporting innovation and creativity, and providing a structured yet flexible framework for development, we can ensure the long-term success of our teams and, by extension, our clubs. This comprehensive approach to employee experience challenges traditional norms and sets a new standard for club excellence. It’s time for leaders to embrace this paradigm shift, recognizing that the path to sustainable growth and success lies in our most valuable asset: our people.
