Why Employee Training is Important for Any Business

Not sure why it's important to train your employees? Figure it's just a waste of time and money? While employee training can result in a short-term loss of productivity and comes with a cost, as you'll soon find out its long-term benefits far outweigh those two things. 

Some companies are very apprehensive about instituting employee training programs. They figure they hired the person who was most qualified so they could hit the ground running. Why should they invest money and time into training them? As we'll find out in our article this week, properly training your employees can lead to a whole host of benefits that you may not have considered.

Why Employee Training is Important for Your Business

No matter what type of business you run, training your employees can boost their morale, improve their performance, and greatly benefit your business as a whole. While you may be worried about the cost and time it takes to properly train an employee, in the end your business will reap the rewards of this solid investment. Here's how. 

1. Better employee performance

The main reason most companies engage and invest in employee training is to make their employees better. After all, that is the goal of training. By providing your employees with the tools and knowledge they need to succeed in your company, you'll find their productivity and performance will increase. This will allow them to have a more positive impact on your business and get their projects completed quicker. It will also allow them to better understand the expectations and responsibilities their role encompasses, making sure there's nothing lost in translation and their objectives are clearly defined. 

At Matrix we invest in our workforce by providing training, benefits, and RRSPs. Want to know more about our Calgary labour staffing company? Click the button below to get in touch with us. 


2. Safety

One of the other main reasons companies conduct employee training — especially in the construction or trades industries — is to make sure their employees and job sites are safe as possible. Properly training employees who deal with heavy equipment or high-risk situations is not just a good idea, it's the responsible thing to do. While the employees you hire for these positions undoubtedly have previous safety training, perhaps there are certain aspects of your operation that they've never encountered before. By bringing them up to speed on how things work in your business when it comes to safety protocols, you'll keep everyone who's on site safer. 

3. You'll increase employee retention and growth

By investing in your employees through training, they'll feel a lot more valued within your organization. You'll have shown them that you're committed to their professional growth, and they'll repay the favour by staying with your company for a much longer time due to the enjoyment and satisfaction you've provided them through that commitment. Keeping your employees for longer will also cut down on the time and money you spend hiring and onboarding new people, and will give you a pool of qualified candidates to promote to higher positions from within.

4. Your customers will be happier

Having well-trained employees can have an amazingly big impact on the happiness of your customers, and may just be the most beneficial aspect of the whole process. By having employees who can execute their jobs at a high level, they'll turn in work and service that your customers love. This will help keep them as a client for longer and can even lead to future growth as they'll be more inclined to sing your praises to their friends or industry connections. Talk about a win-win!
