The train drain – fact or fiction?

Training your staff boosts retention and ups productivity

Someone once said “The only thing worse than training employees and losing them is to not train them and keep them”

The fact is, and don’t take our word for it, that training staff actually makes them want to stay – not leave. A report in Bloomberg Businessweek entitled ‘Emerging Workforce Study’ found that companies that don’t train their employees are more than three times as likely to lose them.

Not only that, you’ll find that they will work more productively too as they put their new found skills into practice. Everyday tasks will become a walk in the park and more complex challenges a breeze.

Your investment in your employees will pay dividends when it comes to your investment in technology. Squeezing every last bit of value from the systems you have in place will become easier when they have acquired the know-how and the satisfaction gained will be evident by the smiles on their faces from a job well done.

As a result, you not only build their skill levels, but their confidence and self esteem. And rather than take their skills elsewhere, you build their loyalty too. It’s a real win-win scenario.

So when do you train and how often? Technology doesn’t stand still and neither should you. As new business challenges arise your employees need to be able to rise to meet them.
