Why should you invest in training your employees? Shouldn't they be the best at their occupations the moment they're hired? If that’s your point of view stop reading now!
If not, then here are 5 advantages of training your employees:
1 | Employees believe they are valued
When an employee feels that their work is valued at an organisation, they will respect the business and managers more. Additionally, they will learn more about the company from the training and feel a sense of belonging in the organisation and gain connection with other employees.
2 | Employees are much less likely to leave the organisation
Much like the first point, employees will feel valued if money has been spent on training them to the be the best they can possibly be at their job. Therefore, they will not want to leave a company where they are valued and where their skills have been developed for the purpose of that job role.
3 | Improves employee productivity
If employees are trained to a high standard, they will be more productive as they will feel more confident in what they are doing, as they have seen how the training has helped them develop.
4 | Reduces recruitment costs
Instead of hiring new employees and having to spend money on the whole recruitment process again, the company can fund less money into training programs, e-learning or face-to-face, to improve their employees' abilities. Training reduces the need to hire more employees.
5 | Aids in job satisfaction
Again, if an employee is valued and productive at work, they are more likely to enjoy their job which will make them less likely to leave because they feel fulfilled in their current position.
Clearly training employees is a must have as it makes for a happier, healthier working environment! As well as improving employee fulfilment and engagement. Plus, the business will be saving money!
