The Benefits of Regular Training in the Work Space
On average each of us will switch jobs 10-15 times in our lifetime, we will be in these jobs on average for five years or less. So when we’re going for promotions or the next steps on the career ladder, we need to be fully equipped and trained to deal with the requirements of these new ventures.
Keeping Up With Industry Practices
Industries are changing all the time and it’s important for businesses and individuals to develop to avoid being left behind. It’s also important to be wary of the changing laws and regulations within the industry, if businesses aren’t keeping up with what is expected of them by law, then hefty fines and punishments normally follow.
In some industries refresher training is required by law. Retail environments for example are expected to keep up with fire safety and THINK 25 regulations. Most work environments are required to take part in Health & Safety training, with regular refreshers.
Keeping all staff trained and up to date with new and improving skills can be the edge a business needs to stay ahead of the competition. New skills can help expand a business and open up new opportunities for company and employee. However it’s important to remember that keeping the basic skills up to scratch is a vital part of the company’s success.
As previously mentioned, ongoing training can really help a business expand. Not only by expanding the skill set of current workers, but by attracting the top talent available. The top talent only became the top talent by working hard and taking advantages of the available development opportunities.
