14 Reasons Training is Good For Business
One of the best training quotes I’ve ever heard goes like this;
“Employers ask me ‘What if I train my staff and they leave?’ And I always reply ‘What if you don’t train them and they stay?’”
It’s true that training your staff is an investment in terms of both money and time. And like any investment there is a risk that what you put in will go to waste, in this case if staff leave.
But consider the risks of not training your staff and you’ll see that they are much worse. In essence, you prevent your staff from being better, and hence you prevent your business from being better. You forego any improvement in skills, practices, attitude, competitiveness…
We’ve put together our list of the top reasons training is good for your business. In no particular order, here it is…
- New skills and expertise that will spread throughout your workforce
- Improved practices leading to better systems and processes
- More efficient and productive employees
- Staff will be more confident and able to take on more responsibility
- You will have more time to work on strategic things because staff will need less supervision
- Meet legislative requirements regarding staff training
