TRAINING!  WHAT’S HOLDING YOU BACK?

Does the organization you work for value your skill set?  Do you feel you or your organization could be better at expanding your skill set?

Consider the emotional connection you would have if I were to tell you Improved Employee Capability, Increased Productivity, and Reduction in Cost and Micro-Management are words you are going to use to describe the quality of your organization after a successful training program is administered.

A training program can boost an organizations weakness by focusing on bringing all employees to the same skill set level so the organization does not have to rely on a few particular employees to get the job done correctly.

“Training can play a key role in helping companies gain a competitive advantage and successfully deal with competitive challenges” (Noe, 2103).

    Hi Joseph, great post! You made the statement, “A training program can boost an organizations weakness by focusing on bringing all employees to the same skill set level so the organization does not have to rely on a few particular employees to get the job done correctly.” This statement is very true. If companies realized that training is benefit for everyone and could possibly cut down stress on the job due to lack of trained staff, the companies would eliminate a great portion of their issues. In the Noe text, he states, “A study by the Business Roundtable found that 62 percent of employers report they are having difficulty finding qualified job applicants to fill job openings.” (Noe, p. 28) This number could be cut in half with employee training.
