Alibaba Company is one of the online merchandise companies in the world that offers its services through the use of modern technology to meet its customers. The company has been boosted with the advances made in the world in terms of technology. As a result, it’s always updated on the most current technology that would ensure there is effective communication, sharing of data and satisfaction of the needs of the consumers in the market.
The success of this organization is driven by various factors. One such factor is the ability of the organization to offer opportunities for the development of the employees. It works under a system in which the employees have the freedom to develop their career whenever an opportunity arises (Yahaya & Ebrahim, 2016). Besides that, the management team also encourages delegation of duties which makes it easier for the employees to sharpen their skills and always turn up when called into action. Therefore, these practices have often made it easier for the employees of this organization to advance their careers both internally and externally whenever opportunities are found.
The development of the employees is evidence among any individual that associates himself with this company. This is seen through the way the employees execute their duties, satisfaction with their work and the flexibility exhibited in execution of the assigned duties. Besides that, through promotions and raise in ranks that are seen at the company it's clear that this company supports and develops her employees.
However, there various reasons that make this company develop her employees. These are such as highlighted below:
a) To discover hidden potentials among the employees
b) It usually builds commitment and engagement between employees and the employer
c) This supports succession planning and makes it easier when changing leadership
d) Helps to develop new skills for the future
e) This also attracts new skills and talent for the company
Therefore, the empowerment of the employees comes with various benefits for the company. However, the challenge sets in with whom within the organization has to support the development policy. In this case, I think the human resources manager must ensure that employees are empowered and given opportunities to develop (Nikpour, 2017).
Implementation of a more robust development philosophy and practices within the organization is likely to come with numerous benefits to the employees. This is because of the impact that empowering and developing of employees will have on them. Therefore, some of these benefits are such as listed below:
a) Increased job satisfaction
b) Increased morale to execute assigned duties
c) Increased efficiency
d) Increased motivation among the employees
e) Increased loyalty and overall performance of the employees
Finally, the development of these employees requires a plan, a plan that ensures that the needs of these employees are identified, their weak areas identified, and then effective professional development needs of these employees are taken care of by the use of an effective organizational development plan (Dhar, 2015). Therefore, the following issues have to be considered when taking care of the professional needs of the employees.
a) Create and identify personal development of the employees. This is initiated by consideration of the emotional balance, intellectual growth, and physical health of the employees.
b) Initiate development of the soft skills that have been de-emphasized among corporates
c) Conducting of a cross-departmental training to all employees
d) Initiation of coaching and mentoring of the employees
e) Finally, conduct professional training for the employees and remove any obstacle that might be hindering their progress.
