How can staff training improve your business?
Posted on 9th August 2018 at 12:06
Here at White Star Security we are always trying to improve the skill base of our staff. This keeps staff interested in their role as well as keeping staff up to date with current legislation and trends within the Security Sector.
Continuous ongoing training is important not just to employee development and staff morale, but it also affects the success of your business in many ways.
A business should never stand still and nor should the development of your staff. If you look past this, there are a number of important reasons why ongoing staff training can be beneficial to your business and should therefore be made a priority. With quality training in place, this will improve staff productivity.
Once a business has spent money on providing basic level skills, these can easily be built upon and improved to provide much more benefit to the business moving forward.
Good for your workers
Training has many benefits for your staff:
• Staff acquire new skills, increasing their contribution to the business and building their self-esteem (and their self-worth).
• Training they do can take them into other positions within the organisation – positions with better prospects and or better pay.
• Staff can be upskilled to do new and different tasks, which keeps them motivated and fresh.
• Staff being trained on your time shows that you see that you value them enough to invest in them. A good company is seen as one that retrains its staff as opposed to having a huge turnover of staff.
Through continued investment from your business, staff can have a much higher sense of job satisfaction, which can improve their motivation towards their work. Here at White Star we have seen that this has reduced employee turnover and in turn has increases productivity, this clearly directly improves the profitability of your business. We have seen that this also reduces staff sickness and more so improves staff morale.
This also prevents competitors from taking away your best experienced employees by offering other training incentives, such as better pay and or conditions.
Team White Star are always striving to make sure that our staff are always at the forefront of our business
