Significant benefits of Effective Training:
Operational effectiveness and efficiency - through good communication and teamwork skills, employees are better able to work across job functions, to apply information, and to think critically and act logically. Trained employees are better able to adapt to change—a must in today’s economy.
Increased job satisfaction - A recent study of employee loyalty found that two areas that drive loyalty are the businesses’ focus on employees, and training and development opportunities. Engaged, motivated employees are more likely to stay in their jobs, and reduction in employee turnover boosts the bottom line.
Reduction in supervision - As a result of effective training, employees gain the necessary skills and knowledge and will become more confident. They will become self reliant and require only little guidance as they perform their tasks. The supervisor can depend on the employee’s decision to give quality output. This relieves supervisors the burden of constantly having to give directives on what should be done.
More attractive workplace - the national unemployment rate is relatively high, making recruiting qualified talent a challenge. Employees want a place to work where they can hone their skills and better their lives and the best employees are more attracted to organizations that offer such programs.
Transfer of Skills - by 2016, with the nation’s localization drive, businesses must utilize job audits and other collection methods to document the tacit knowledge of scarce skilled employees who have been with the organization for years, and they must train the understudies’ to upgrade their skills.
Training that teaches employees how to comply with basic employment law principles can help protect the company from liability and litigation. An employer can be held legally responsible for the on-the-job actions of employees. Training employees about issues such as harassment and discrimination helps an employer manage that risk. Workplace training puts all employees on notice of company policies regarding unethical behaviour and lets them know that non-compliance is not tolerated.
