It is annoying how so many Companies still put training low on their list of priorities when they look at work to be completed.
Training is such an important issue to all individuals and Companies in order for them to continue to develop, keep up with the cutting edge of things and move forward with the aim of achieving their business goals.
With training, staff continue to develop their skills and learn new skills in order to carry out their role. They also become more accomplished at what they already do by attending updates. This in turn enables them to increase the quality of their work (including less mistakes) and need less supervision from others at the same time.
Training shows staff how the Company is willing to invest in them and their skills. This in turn increases motivation and staff morale. Staff become much happier and in this type of atmosphere often do not want to move to any other Company. They become very loyal to the Company which in turn increases staff retention. This also has an effect on sickness and absence and then becomes an atmosphere of better safety and increased productivity and satisfaction.
Teamwork, which is an important issue in the workplace, increases and staff have more confidence in what they are doing as well as creating a more supportive workplace. Staff will be up to date with the policies and procedures as training increases and improves communication so any changes in the workplace can be communicated effectively.
This also has an impact on improved customer service which in turn will have an impact on orders that a Company receives.
When all the issues mentioned come into play they all have an impact on the Company achieving its business goals and maybe even exceeding those goals.
Therefore training is an essential part of company plans and should not be ignored.
