I recently read a useful blog by Alex K for Training Zone, giving some clear reasons why company's should invest in skills-based training for their employees.  Some of the key reasons can be found below :

  • Increase in job satisfation - "Employees feel more valued and appreciated when a company invests time and effort into their training to make them better workers and individuals"


  • Increase in employee productivity - "By investing in training, companies grow their worker's confidence in completing a task assigned to them as well as helping them understand the overall pipeline of their job processes.


  • Reduction in employee turnover - "Employee turnover is much reduced in a company that invests in training because employees feel far more appreciated and needed.


  • Making for a more attractive place of employment - "Training means room for future development and promotion and for ambitious workers, it could be advancing very quickly if they put in the effort".


  • A long term prospect for a workforce - "Training can help a company develop workers that have the skills that are needed to fucntion, but at the same time offer a worker the chance to learn new thing".


Here is the link to the full blog if you want to read it :


So in conclusion, there are some key/value add benefits to investing in skill-based training within your organisation.  

It would be great to hear from community members and get their experience of skills-based training.  Does your organisation invest time to provide skill-based training?  What have your experiences of this been?
