Not completely sold on why you should train and upskill your staff? Perhaps you feel that your team is performing well and so you don't deem it necessary to spend that bit of extra money on external training programmes...
Let's take a look at 4 reasons why training is important
1. There is a direct correlation between training your workforce and retaining them
2. They will gain knowledge and practical tools with which to improve their skills and performance
... External trainers have access to the latest trends and information, a more formalised approach to learning as such, and are therefore able to add value to the skills, and ultimately the team's end game.
3. Training helps people succeed
, when they succeed we are able to thank them appropriately adding to their sense of self-worth and accomplishment - both of which are imperative to a thriving, innovative and engaged workforce.
4. According to the Association for Talent Development (ATD) a survey undertaken across 565 companies and a three year period, shows that companies who train generate a staggering 218% higher income per employee
than companies who do not. Not only that but they also show a 24% increase in profit margins.
At Staff Training we build
great working relationships with the companies and delegates we train. A lot of our business is return business so we often see the same delegates over a period of a few years. Nearly without exception these individuals have been promoted, are excited about not only the jobs they do, but also about the goals of the companies they work for. They feel valued and they take personal pride in their own growth as much as they take pride in what their company is achieving. We get to see photos of their families and pets, the new car and homes they invest in and we see nearly without exception individuals hungry for knowledge.
In conclusion, if you take into consideration the current COVID-19 situation
, it is important to keep in mind that it has had an effect on all of us. Your staff/team might be under more stress than before, perhaps their productivity has taken a dip or they are now heading back to the office in the new upgraded level 3 regulations and will be in direct contact with clients and customers...
