Importance Of Highlighting Behavioral Skills In The Workplace

Recorded on

Behavioral skill is an integral aspect of the corporate culture. One cannot ignore the fact that human behavior plays a key role in any organization’s efficiency and success, having a direct effect on the productivity and engagement of employees.

With a culture of gossip and blame, workers will never unleash their full potential. In the same way, supportive and motivating work culture reflects in their performance. Behavioral skills training helps to control effective human behavior for better job performance.

In this podcast, Vivek Anand, an HR and Behavioral Skill Specialist talk about the importance of highlighting behavioral skills in the workplace. According to Vivek, organizations should hire and treat employees as humans and develop their human potentials. HRs should try not to transform a human into machines. Involving employees in decision making can make your business stronger and boost their morale, improving behavior. He suggests HRs not to interrogate, but explore the best behaviors that suit their organization.
