Staff Training - the truth

It can be tempting to treat staff training as a dispensable expenditure, however studies show that tailored learning and development can be critical to business success.

Learning and development

IBM has completed a study to examine the percentage of capabilities that businesses lose over time. With internal and external turnover, new technology and changes in businesses factored in, the study found that a company loses 10 to 30 percent of its original capabilities each year. Any business that doesn't believe in training, evolving, and moving their people forward is paying a much steeper price than it realises.

Benefits of staff training

When productivity dips, it can be tempting to bring in new people to relight the fire in your office, however it is so much less expensive to retrain your existing staff. Firstly 65% of employees say that the quality of training they receive affects their engagement and therefore productivity at work. Secondly the cost of rehiring is so expensive; new hires compensation, on boarding materials, Hiring Managers time, HR staff induction costs and loss of time until they are operating within the full capacity of the job. All which can be reduced if the existing staff were trained and retained.
