Managers Must Give Employees The Time to Attend Business Coaching and Training Courses

A Lack of Time can be a Major Reason for Not Letting Employees Attend Training and Development Courses

Developing employees and increasing their productivity and effectiveness in their current or potential role within the company is seen as highly important by virtually every manager, no matter which industry they are involved in. Even so, one of the most significant reasons for not providing employees with business coaching or sending them on training courses - aside from the cost - is the requirement for time to be taken away from the workplace.

Although some have tried to circumvent this requirement through the creation of distance learning or online courses, they are nearly always far less effective than taught courses not only for imparting information which can be utilised in the workplace, but also for those accredited qualifications which require an assessment to be passed at the conclusion and as such a recollection of the applicable knowledge (imagine trying to recall information that you read bleary-eyed on the computer screen late at night after a hard day at work!).


Classroom-Based Training

In order to attend a classroom-based training course taught by an actual physical tutor, individuals will need to be given the permission to be absent from the workplace by their manager. Obviously whilst they are away they will not be contributing to the organisation in any way, which can cause disruption and lower output as fewer people or indeed nobody is performing the task(s).

This consequence can be responsible for many managers simply letting things carry on as they are and not allowing or arranging business coaching or training sessions for their employees.


Training and Coaching Needs to be Viewed an an Investment Not a Cost

Managers need to think of development brought about by training and coaching as an investment, and that a short-term drop of production or small period of disruption will in all likelihood be far more greatly offset by the gains in performance that will be enjoyed in the future after the training wisdom has been imparted or the business coach has discussed the issues which are holding the individual back and created suitable action plans with them for them to enact which will likely make them a much more valuable member of the company's workforce, hopefully for a long time to come.

Not only can training be a desirable luxury in terms of something which managers would like to provide if only they had the time and budget to spare, but sometimes it is a legal necessity, for example health and safety training.

Whilst certain areas of training are intended to significantly improve the fortunes of the company, such as increasing revenue or providing better customer service, a failure to take the required actions to prevent accidents and injuries to employees or members of the public can result in heavy fines or even criminal prosecution in serious instances.
