Skills development is a long term plan. It needs to be implemented consistently, measured regularly and adjusted as requirements change. This is a daunting process for any experienced HR manager, let alone general managers and supervisors in a business.
Some of our key objectives when working with you are;
Increased productivity of your staff. Skills Development remains one of the most effective methods of gaining more productivity out of staff. A staff member who is well trained will be able to complete a task more accurately and quicker consistently. This adds greatly to the profitability of the company in that there are less errors and more importantly more work can be done in a single day per staff member.
Speed and accuracy is an unsung hero of the perfect employee. It might seem difficult to get a perfect employee however most staff members are able to improve their abilities – just at different speeds and using different methods. A well designed training plan tailored to each employee will see better performance, less errors and a faster job.
Job satisfaction is directly linked to increased motivation. Studies have shown that motivation comes more from job satisfaction than a higher salary or wage rate. Although many employees want a higher salary, good businesses realize that increased skills result in additional responsibilities by staff members which in turn ensures job satisfaction and justifies higher wage rates as more work is being done.
Additional competent staff working more effectively will help your business grow and be much more profitable. Every business wants to increase their profits – Skills development has been a proven conduit to achieving that goal. Less, highly productive staff are able to get more work done than more, unproductive staff. Further, with their own personal growth they are going to be more committed to your business.
Staff Retention. Retaining staff allows you to retain the skills and knowledge learnt over the years of employment. Through a thorough consultative process we are able to identify potential problem employees beforehand and then take corrective action.
Piece of mind – training staff is a hard exercise. Maintaining the discipline, ensuring training material is relevant to staff and that each staff member is able to develop is key to the success of any training program. With the knowledge that we are focusing on your training needs all the time will give you the confidence to know that new employees and existing employees will go through adequate training programs.
