Sheffield, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 06, 2009 -- The so called credit crunch has meant that firms are wisely looking to cut back on non essential expenditure. Unfortunately, a frequent casualty of cutbacks and economy drives always seems to be staff training.
Badly trained staff can lead to lost sales & productivity, health & safety problems and create a general âfeel badâ factor in and around offices and workplaces. This is not what employers will want when the economy starts to pick up and they are trying to motivate the staff they have managed to retain, integrate new employees and raise moral in general.
Successful businesses which include training as part of their business plan, will find that training will pay for itself and save the business money in the long run.
Studies show that the cost of 1 person being absent from the workplace actually costs 1.8 times that amount. The Northern Ireland police service found that training staff about, something as simple, as stress awareness, halved absenteeism in one fell swoop. That has to be good business sense and the cost of the training investment tiny in comparison
The latest course provided by Sheffield (UK) based Sharp End Training can help managers. âManaging the training processâ is an online only course aimed at managers, supervisors or anyone involved in training.
Sharp End Training Director Jonathan Senior said, âI think most people can see through organisations that waste money on training and awards which have little to do with the staff or the customer. This course will walk managers through the steps needed to make every penny account for itself in the training processâ.
âAnd because this course is online, managers can do it whenever they want and not worry about taking their finger off the pulseâ
