Invest in your workforce to grow your business
It’s one of the most recited wisdoms in business;
Two managers are talking about training their employees. The first one asks, “But what if we train them and they just leave?” The second manager responds, “What if we don’t train them and they stay?”
Staff development is an essential business strategy.
Improving the skills and knowledge of your workforce will motivate your employees and increase productivity. N&B Training offers a wide range of qualifications including one-day workshops, apprenticeships and senior management programmes. All of our qualifications are conducted by professional Training Coordinators in your place of work to minimise disruption to the daily running of your business.
By using our services, you could:
1. Increase productivity levels
When employees are equipped with the right skills and knowledge, they do their jobs more efficiently which in turn reduces business losses.
2. Improve staff retention rates
Recruiting replacement staff is time consuming and expensive thus it’s much more effective to implement a reliable staff retention strategy, and by demonstrating to your key workers that you’re willing to invest in them, they’re less likely to look for a new job elsewhere.
3. Boost staff morale
When a company invests in an employee’s professional development, it makes them feel valued, increasing loyalty, and decreasing absenteeism, mistakes and work-induced stress, all of which make for a healthy business.
4. Enhance company image
Reputation is increasingly important for businesses, particularly as any company is easily researched online. Positive feedback from current and past employees is imperative if you want to attract key talent in the future and being recognised for your staff development programme is one way to do this.
5. Keep up-to-date with the latest sector developments
Having the ability to quickly implement changes to working practices is vital for helping staff perform their jobs in a manner that will place your company at the forefront of your industry.
6. Free up your management team
All too often, management are unable to fully perform their jobs because the vast majority of their time might be spent supervising under-trained junior employees. By equipping junior members of staff with the confidence and abilities to perform their job with less supervision, you’ll release the full potential of your senior employees.
7. Keep all staff certificates up to date
It’s important to keep all first aid certificates and other relevant industry qualifications regularly validated for legal and corporate responsibility purposes. Our one-day workshops and short courses are designed to refresh your knowledge quickly and concisely.
