An Investment in Training
To borrow the famous Benjamin Franklin quote “An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.”
It is true, but you may not be thinking of all the reasons why.
Leverage Tools You Own
You made a significant investment in your current business software, an incredibly powerful system that can do so much, yet we so often hear, “I only use a small portion of my software” or “I never knew Sage 300 could do that!”
With a relatively small investment in employee training, you can achieve a much greater return or your original investment by using more of the functionality in the software you already own.
In a study by ATD, Association for Talent Development, formerly ASTD, the international professional membership organization it was found that companies with formal training programs have achieved as much as 218% higher income per employee than companies without regular training. They also tend to have higher profit margins than those who spend less on training.
Google “Value of Employee Training” and you will find very compelling statistics that support what we are stating here.
With the economy growing as it is, finding and keeping qualified hardworking employees is more important than ever. Knowledge and skills enhancement, career advancement is always one of the top reasons employees accept a position and keep it. Especially with Millennials, today the largest group in the US workforce.
The Cost of Mistakes
Untrained staff, with all the best of intentions, just make mistakes due to lack of the necessary know-how. These errors can be very costly to fix and lead to business losses that are sometimes significant. You can avoid these costs with regular training programs. Making the time and allocating budget to training staff quickly pays for itself.
