Ask the Flexpert…What’s the Importance of Training and Development?

The importance of training programs to employees and the employers is exhibited in eight different ways:

Improved employee performance

The employee who has undergone thorough training has necessary skills, knowledge, and abilities to perform his/ her task better.  A skilled and confident employee will embrace his/her employer based on overall production.

Employee satisfaction

The company shows appreciation to its staff and thus employees feel valued and motivated.

Addressing weaknesses

Workers have varied abilities, skills, and knowledge. This is why teamwork is emphasized most in team building exercises. This training also creates a valuable connection between employees.

Consistency

Equips the employees with enough competencies and experience. The consistency results in enhanced performance.

Increased productivity and quality

If the workforce is motivated there is an observable growth rate in productivity and encourages the company to implement more training courses.

Increased innovation

The workforce needs training in order to fit in with the rapidly trending automation advances in every market.

Reduced employee turnover

Employees who are trained on how to operate and maintain modern industrial equipment and systems are likely to feel valued if investments are made in their career and less likely to leave employers who value them.

Enhances company reputation and profile

Helps to develop an employer’s brand and makes a company a prime consideration for graduates and mid-career changes.

So training and development offer both employers and employees with advantages that make the time and cost a valuable investment.
