Training and development is an indispensable function in an ever changing and fast paced corporate world. Training allows employees to acquire new skills, sharpen existing ones, perform better, increase productivity and be better leaders. The Company is often uncertain – ‘what if a company train an employee, and they leave? All the investment the company made on them – would it be in vain? So why train them at all? The answer is very simple – train them well and keep them suitably engaged and they WON’T leave your firm! And oh! The returns on a well-trained employee far exceeds the monetary spends. Processes for training and development of the company need to go hand-in-hand for the success of your organization and employees since a company is the sum total of what employees achieve individually, organizations should do everything in their power to ensure that employees perform at their peak.
Ameliorates performance: If your employee receives the relevant training he/she will be able to deliver better results and thus improve the company bottom-line
Assures sharing of information: All your employees get equal access to information, pertinent to the business, through the training sessions.
Self-driven: Well-trained staff members need less supervision, hence fewer man hours go to waste.
Brings Satisfaction and Makes loyal: Employees will be more loyal to your company if your care for their personal growth and development; no matter how small or large your organization.
Can hire from a broader talent pool: An effective training program allows your organization to hire a wider range of employees, and then develop them over a period of time, rather than looking for exact talent matches.
Helps to maintain a competitive edge: Through employee training, you keep a company competitive by keeping your people up-to-date with the ever changing business needs, skills requirements, and complex external environments.
With the fast paced growth in the software and hardware technology sector, companies and institutions will have to cope with the vast progress through providing its employees with the necessary technical training to improve their performance, and through adopting new practices to develop more competitive businesses. Technical training should be tailored to the set of skills required at the company or organization.
Continuous technical training is crucial for any organization to improve the technical competence of its employees. Professionally trained employees can assist the management and propose new ways to develop their companies' operations at a lesser cost or provide new and more competitive services. Employees also prefer to work at organizations, which provide continuous training programs to develop their capabilities. Through offering competent technical training, organizations maintain their employees and attract qualified employees from other organizations. Technical training is also important for any organization to apply a new technical system, which would require tailored professional training for its staff to enable them to operate such a system; otherwise, they would fail to benefit from the upgraded technical capabilities, and would feel frustrated and might look for job opportunities elsewhere.
Behavioural Skills Training has become vital part of organizational development as organisations across the world recognize the importance of inculcating the right attitude in their employees. "If you want to change attitudes, start with a change in behaviour", says the great American psychiatrist, Dr. William Glasser. The change in behaviour requires them to unlearn behaviour ingrained in them over a period of time and imbibe new behavioural skills.
The focus of the training is on enhancing the behaviours, suggested by the organization, in the participants. Behavioural Training helps individuals to take a look at their behaviour patterns, and equips them with new skills to identify new patterns to get better results.
