Training has long been thought of as everything from an “afterthought” to a “would be nice to have” part of an organization’s strategic plan, corporate culture, and vision. This is especially true in small to medium sized businesses who don’t have a person designated and/or dedicated to driving learning paths for staff and executives.
Employee training offers many benefits to any organization, including:
- Increased productivity through learning
- Greater employee retention
- Creating and executing a corporate culture of continual learning, teamwork, and development
- Providing an employee environment where relevant skills are obtained to achieve organizational results
- Identifying and creating opportunities for “future leaders”
It is as difficult to measure a monetary return on investment on training as it is to measure monetary losses in productivity, dissatisfaction and attrition. It is for this reason that the ROI on training should be measured based on employee retention, increased productivity, behavioral change and a happier and more knowledgeable staff.
There are so many changes happening throughout corporations, government and organizations of all types and sizes that have a direct effect on all levels of staff, so it seems logical to ensure that employees are equipped to accept and execute on these changes. Training that focuses on specific needs, delivered to an audience that requires and expects it, is a great first step for any organization to take. Training solves organizational challenges and achieves defined goals.
