In today’s competitive job market, many companies find that their employees don’t have the necessary skills to do their jobs successfully. Job skills are rapidly changing, and most companies aren’t offering the training necessary for their employees to keep up. However, there are some simple changes you, as a hiring manager, can make to your approach to training. After all, well trained employees are far less likely to leave their companies than employees who continually receive quality training, and replacing an employee who leaves can cost over fifty percent of their salary in the end. However, there is a solution. Breakthrough Corporate Training offers a variety of professional training services that can make a huge difference to your organization’s success. We offer keynote motivational speakers in the Sydney area, as well as sessions in team building and executive coaching.
Most companies aren’t spending nearly enough money on training for their employees. Many studies have shown that the average amount for training budgets is under one thousand dollars per year, even though it would cost at least double that to have continual training that makes a difference in the way employees do their jobs. Increasing your annual training budget can really pay off in the long run. If you cannot increase the training budget, look for inexpensive ways to train your employees. Organize company meetings where employees can “train” each other by sharing what works and what doesn’t, or look into inexpensive online courses.
It’s also important to keep training up-to-date with what’s going on in your field at the moment. Technology is changing so quickly, and so many new jobs are being created, that most training programs are no longer relevant for their jobs. If you haven’t updated your training programs in a while, see if you can bring in specialists who can help your employees learn new skills that they will use regularly. It’s also important to offer a wide range of training programs, as today’s work environment often requires employees to wear many hats, not just the ones they were originally hired for. Giving your employees opportunities to learn different skills pays off in the long run, because you won’t have to hire multiple people when one person could do the job.

Finally, it’s important to start training from the moment employees are hired. Create an efficient on boarding process that you can use for every new hire, and have them start it on their first day. It will make them feel more comfortable at their new job, and more successful as well. If you are hiring several new people at one time, it may be worth your while to bring in a professional corporate trainer to help assimilate the new employees quickly.
When in doubt about how to successfully train your employees, consult a professional service, such as Breakthrough Corporate Training. Bringing in keynote motivational speakers and trainers to help target specific issues can make a real difference in the success of your organization.
