Many entrepreneurs think that training employees is a very expensive job and for some aspects such as the personal part, it is not necessary. But they are ignoring the fact that improving those weaknesses of the team could have great benefits for the organization. We will analyse this and look at some example that prove this point. For example, an employee who is good at building a website could achieve so much more if he was given the chance for further training. That way, in the long run he’d be able to contribute much more and complete more complicated tasks than what was mentioned formerly. This is only one of many cases where the true potential of employees is realised thus resulting in fruitful development for the person and the company as a whole. Here are some advantages of training in companies considering the whole of the organization:
1. Increases the productivity of the company as the degree of intelligence of employees increases. Many studies have actually statistically proven this.
2. Employees receiving training generate more confidence and thus can meet their goals more easily. In addition, they are able to undertake greater goals.
3. Provides an opportunity for many to grow professionally and expand their knowledge. This is a key point, as many never receive this opportunity, which metaphorically means, leaving a gold mine untouched.
4. Whenever there is a drawback in the work environment, business training contributes to its solution. This is because the training also teaches how to adapt and how to deal with unexpected situations.
5. Though it represents an expense to the company, the results end up bringing the same amount of supply in productivity which is how it’s counted as the number of trained personnel increases.
6. Employees can handle issues more smoothly and solve certain types of problems caused by failures presented in a process that the organization made.
7. With this type of training what is also achieved is that employees obtain an increased sense of belonging and being part of the company. A sense that motivates them to offer more for the common good of the company.
8. Focusing on training to improve talents undoubtedly increases the motivation of employees.
Considering the advantages described above, we can conclude that those who keep the organization afloat are not only big business personnel and the leaders, but ALL who contribute a bit to make the company work, grow and who currently maintain such business in a society where premium customer service on a good product is greatly valued. That’s why entrepreneurs should weigh the two proposals of allocating some of their resources to conduct training for their staff or to allocate them to increase the number of products they produce normally. This is also a great decision, as more and more employees are possible candidates for delegation of further more complex duties. Knowing that as I said above, the costs caused by training personnel are recovered by generating added value to the organization while expenses incurred by the manufacture or delivery of a product or service, respectively, although they will be recovered, will not generate any added value because it is something to which the company is engaged and is something that is always made or manufactured, one can see which would be the ideal option for the development of the company.
