Often training staff can be expensive and mean that the particular employee misses time at work while they go on the course. These factors can make offering training to staff off-putting however, there are many benefits to providing training to staff.
Good staff can be hard to come by and retaining them can be even harder if there is no incentive to stay. Training is an employee benefit that can be used to show how invested the company is in their staff and what the business does. This in turn increases staff motivation, satisfaction and morale meaning staff are more likely to want to stay within the company creating a reduction in staff turnover.
Also, if a member of staff does leave but, you have a staff member that has completed the required training to manage the ex-employee’s work it offers an opportunity to promote that staff member from within the business and/or keep services up and running until a new member of staff can be employed improving efficiency.
Training courses also allow employers to be able to demonstrate that staff are compliant with regulations and meet the required standards of working. They also mean that staff learn about the latest innovations and methods providing a more efficient use of time within the business saving money and resource.
