Many business owners and managers do not recognise the importance of regular employee training. You wouldn’t hire a pilot who couldn’t fly a plane would you?
Maybe it is a cost issue, the two biggest resources used for job training are time and money. Sometimes it’s because a Company has had a bad experience outsourcing training or that they are smaller and cannot afford for employees to be away from their busy position to attend training.
Whatever the reasons, these businesses are missing a trick as we know, through the many candidates we speak too, that they love to take time out to learn something new.
Here are 6 truths why training really is good for both your employees and your business: -
- Trained employees are more likely to be retained
Staff who receive regular training are more likely to feel valued which leads to higher employee retention levels.
- Increased productivity
Learning something new can often refresh and rejuvenate an employee to look for opportunities to be more productive in their day to day role.
- Boosts morale
Demonstrating you are investing in your team shows that you care about enhancing their position in your Company. Spending time and money to make them even better at their job will give them confidence which can lead to a more positive performance and motivate them to do their absolute best for your business.
Having a training induction programme in place is also a way of attracting candidates to a new job position as it gives them an opportunity to settle into the role; environment and culture making their first day a little less daunting.
- Team building
Team building events can support a training programme and can help cross-function and department relationships. Bringing everyone together to go through the same programme will unite teams with the core Company goal and values also identify and help eradicate any work environment issues.
- Creating a learning culture
Knowledge should only be encouraged in any work environment because the more employees know, the more innovative and motivated they will be. To have innovative minds on your team is the first step to becoming leaders in your industry.
If your business isn't currently motivating and rewarding your employees with a training programme why not consider online training as a starting point.
