Why invest in employee training and development

Henry Ford was credited with the quote “The only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave is not training them and having them stay.”  

Regardless of where this quote originates, it highlights the importance of investing in the training and development of your company’s most vital assets – your employees. 

Investing in training can present your business with many advantages, here are just a few; 

  1. Gain a competitive advantage – Well trained employees can put regularly updated knowledge, skills and experience to use by responding to changes in the market, ensuring long term company success in the process.
  2. Increase employee productivity and performance – ensure that each member of your workforce is carrying out their role as productively and effectively as possible by enabling them to enhance their knowledge, develop new skills and grow with regular training in their chosen field.  Providing employees with the knowledge to feel confident and skilled in their roles with regular training and development will result in improved performance.
  3. Boost morale in the workplace – boost morale amongst your staff with training.  Staff will feel like they belong to an organisation who cares about their career journey and is enabling them to progress.  Regular training and development will result in a more confident and happier workforce.
  4. Fill vital skills gaps –address any weaknesses or skills gaps identified in regular reviews with training and development to create a workforce that is constantly evolving alongside the scope of their role.
  5. Enable creativity – Receiving regular and up to date training will empower your staff with new knowledge and skills.  With the confidence that comes with feeling competent in their role, new innovative and creative ideas and practices can flow.
  6. Increased Employee Loyalty and Decreased TurnoverWhen a company invests in employee training and development, employees feel valued and appreciated. This makes them more loyal, and the more loyal your employees are, the more likely they are to both stay and to refer skilled friends and colleagues to work at the company. Plus, loyal employees are more engaged and motivated and require less supervision.
