Why Employers should Invest in Training

As an employer, you will be familiar with the word ‘training’, but why should you spend money and resources on training your staff? 

Surprise surprise, training your staff can sufficiently improve business performance, profit and staff morale. Did you know that 7 out of 10 people say that training and development opportunities influence their decision to stay with a company? Employees who receive the necessary training gain a greater understanding of their job responsibilities and are therefore more able to perform their job i.e. decreased staff turnover.

Let’s discuss some of the other benefits below:

  • Increased job satisfaction and morale among employees
    Investing time, money and resources in training makes your employees feel valued. Employees who feel appreciated and challenged through training opportunities are more likely to feel satisfied towards their job, increasing the overall morale!
  • Increased employee motivation
    When employees understand their job, it builds their confidence! And with increased confidence, your employees will perform better.
  • Increased efficiencies in processes, resulting in financial gain
    Studies have shown that productivity increases when a company invests in training. With an increased efficiency, tasks are completed more successfully, improving the company’s turnover.
  • Increased capacity to adopt new technologies and methods
    If the training program addresses an employees weaknesses and strengthens, it will ensure that everyone is on the same page! This means that all your employees will share similar skills and knowledge, making it easier to adopt any changes within the company such as new technologies or methods.
  • Increased innovation in strategies and products
    Training can trigger ideas that an employee never thought of before. Learning new things could encourage more creativity and innovation!
  • Reduced employee turnover
    A valued and challenged employee will be more engaged and less likely to leave the company. Even though initial costs in training might seem pricey, it will be worth it when your recruitment costs decrease.
  • Other financial benefits to employers through traineeships and apprenticeships
    • payroll tax exemption (under $100K)
    • New worker funding – state & commonwealth funding
    • Stakeholder Funding (CTF & ABBTF)

  • A HUGE thank you for organising the Try-A-Trade for our students. All three teachers have come back to school absolutely buzzing about what the boys achieved in those three days and what a fantastic program it is. They also said the trainer was amazing and worked so well with the boys.
