For Managers

For Managers - Need to Increase Office Productivity?

Imagine being in charge of a team so efficient that they do most of their tasks in minutes (rather than hours) with nothing being "too difficult" for them!

Wouldn't it be great to get internal staff to do the majority of work without having to rely on external contractors and consultants, let alone the time wasted and additional expenses associated with outside help?

Imagine having a team that is inspired and excited about turning up to work everyday, a team that loves working with their computers and looks forward to a challenge of taking on new customers, creating new promotional materials for them and presenting them with an amazing presentations, ideas and reports just because they can.

We can give your team this power.

What are the Advantages of Staff Training?

Success in business means providing a great product and outstanding customer service. It also means keeping up with technology.

Training your staff and keeping them motivated and up-to-date with industry trends and new technologies is essential to achieving that goal.

Training brings both direct and indirect benefits to a business and can be calculated as a return on investment rather than an expense. Quite often not training staff will lead to dissatisfaction, and a feeling that they are being left behind if they stay there any longer.

Eventually staff will move on to another company or employer if they feel they are getting behind the times, staff need to be constantly expanding, growing and learning or they get bored.

Reasons for Investing in Training

Not sure if training is something you NEED in your business? You be the judge!

  • Staff are more content when they feel appreciated, they take pride in the fact that their company sees them as a worthy investment
  • Staff with formal training can be up to 230% more productive than untrained staff in a similar role (Source: Smith A., 2001, Return on Investment in Training)
  • Studies have shown that Staff Retention can be as high as 94% when an investment is made in the company's most valuable commodity - human resources
  • A properly trained team will work with more confidence, increased productivity, higher morale and provide better customer service than an untrained one
  • Staff training is an excellent way to motivate and reward staff for their efforts while increasing office efficiency
  • Regular training will give you the competitive edge you need in business and allow you to undertake a greater variety of work with confidence
  • Employees want to increase their career prospects by keeping up to date with current software and more inclined to stay if they are receiving frequent training and advancement
  • Training will lead to time management advantages
  • We know that a knowledgeable employee is an asset to the company. Why not be surrounded by them?

A wise manager had thoughts about staff training. He said a lot of companies say:

“What if we spend all this money training our staff and they leave???“

His reply to that was simple:

“What if we don't and they STAY!!!“

Having a group of staff members with limited skills just doesn't make sense and is going to be a stressful place to work with everyone blaming all the problems on their computers.

In fact investing in your staff with training and courses to make their job easier will make them more efficient and happier in their role. They will be more engaged, movivated and staff will be less likely to leave.

Spending money on regular training (a few courses each year per employee) can be a great way to reward staff for their contribution and loyallty and is a win-win situation for both the staff and the organisation. Both will noitice increases in productivity.
