Upcoming Webinar - Employee Training and Its Impact on Productivity, Retention and Revenue

Research states that one-third of new hires quit their job after about six months and disengagement costs billions (US$343 billion annually). Well, most employees want to do a good job and feel satisfied when their efforts make a difference to their workplace. But more often than not, employees need to be trained continually to feel engaged, to keep learning, to keep performing well, and to keep growing. Training can have a significant impact on employee engagement and retention. For every 1% increase in employee engagement, you can expect to see an additional 0.6% growth in sales for an organization.

Ironically, many organizations feel that if there is no point spending money and time to train and develop employees. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics found that companies with fewer than 100 employees gave only 12 minutes of manager training every six months. Think large companies with 100 to 500 employees do better? No. they provided just 6 minutes per half year.

The fact is that a well-designed training program can play a critical part in boosting employees’ self-worth, development opportunities and make them feel good about their job. Performing well becomes second nature for well-trained employees. The improvement is bound to have a positive impact on the business in terms of increased productivity and revenue, and lesser attrition and supervision.
