Is Your Team Training in May? - [website] Email Print
Published: 23rd of Apr 2021 by: Shona Potgieter

May is around the corner, can you believe it? This time last year we were in a hard lockdown and unfortunately companies had to postpone the training and skills development of their workforce.

Luckily this year is looking much more productive and training is back on top of many of our clients' to-do lists!

If you've not yet planned your training for this year, we'd like to urge you to do so. The training and development of staff has such a positive effect on the workplace- whether it be morale, productivity or organizational (and individual) success.

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 significant increase in profit margins.

We have a training calendar available here to help you plan, as a matter of fact we have some really great workshops coming up in May! And if you prefer Virtual training, we offer that option too...
