Employee training is an essential function for many businesses and most large busisnesses have a formal training function in place. Those that don’t would be well advised to consider one; in fact, even smaller organizations can benefit. Where do you start?
Training not only helps boost the efficiency of employees—and thereby productivity and revenue—it also helps boost employee morale, which can drive increased productivity and reduce turnover. Employees who receive training that is designed to help them meet personal and professional goals tend to feel more valued. “If my employer is willing to spend the time and money to train me, they must believe there is a place for me here long term,” they think. In addition, the training they receive can help put them in a position to vie for another, high-paying job or promotion.
