In fact, this opportunity for employees to continue to grow and develop through training is one of the most important factors in employee motivation. There are a couple of secrets about what employees want from training opportunities, however. Plus, training opportunities are not just found in external training classes and seminars. These ideas emphasize what employees want in training and development opportunities.

Ask the employee to train other employees with the information learned at a seminar or training session.
