How can training benefit a company?
Training can benefit a company in many ways. It can benefit the company directly because you chose what new skills you want your workforce to acquire. You target skills to meet the needs of your operation (currently and in the future). Training your employees or staff also results in better customer service and enhanced work safety practices and productivity improvements. It can also benefit your employees directly because they acquire new skills, increasing their contribution to the company and building self-esteem. Also, training can help move employees into other positions with the company they over better prospects or pay.
It is important to constantly continue to train and stay current with any certifications you may need or that your position may require. For example, I am an EMT and am required to refresh ever three years and also update my CPR card every two years. This is because the training methods, rules and medical regulations are consistently changing. Without continuous training, I would not be able to keep current with all the new protocols. Companies want their employees to be cutting edge and knowledgeable in their field, therefore training and development is the best way to obtain this.
