Benefits of training your staff​

Skilling your staff is good for your business and good for your workforce.

Good for your business

Training can improve business performance, profit and staff morale.  Advantages to your business include:

  • You choose what new skills your workforce acquires, targeting skills to meet the needs of your operation for now and in the future
  • Through Skills in the Workplace, you may be able to get government funding to help meet between 50% and 90% of training costs
  • Training your staff can result in better customer service, better work safety practices and productivity improvements
  • You demonstrate to your workforce that you value them enough to invest in them, improving loyalty and staff retention. In turn, retention is a saving to you.

Good for your workers

Training has many benefits for your staff 

  • They acquire new skills, increasing their contribution to the business and building their self-esteem
  • The training they do can take them into other positions within the organisation – positions with better prospects and/or better pay
  • They’re upskilled to do new and different tasks, which keeps them motivated and fresh
  • Because they’re being trained on your time, they see that you value them enough to invest in them.  A good company is seen as one that retrains rather than churns.
