Training is crucial for organizational development and success. It is fruitful to both employers and employees. An employee will become more efficient and productive if he is trained well.
The benefits of training can be summed up as,
- Improves morale of employees – Training helps the employee to get job security and job satisfaction. The more satisfied the employee is and the greater is his morale, the more he will contribute to company/business success and the lesser will be employee absenteeism and turnover.
- Fostering talent – Employees acquire skills and efficiency during training. They become more eligible for promotion. Fostering and supporting your talent makes good business sense and enhances retention rates.
- Increased productivity – Training improves efficiency and productivity of employees. Well trained employees show both quantity and quality performance. There is less wastage of time, money and resources if employees are properly trained.
- Increase job satisfaction levels – Through continued investment from the business, staff can have a much higher sense of job satisfaction, which can improve their motivation towards their work and retention rates.
New technology is being developed all the time and so it is not sufficient to run a one-off training session. Regular training needs to take place to ensure that staff are using all the latest technology comfortably and to its full potential. This can be achieved through implementing a customised staff IT training programme.
