Training for Improving Skills

Training is Vital for All Organisations

The primary purpose of a company organising training for their employees is to develop and improve their abilities and knowledge. Whether this is regarding how to do a task or how to comply with applicable legislation, a failure to train can result in errors, misunderstandings, poor productivity, increased costs and even criminal prosecution if there is a serious failure to comply with legislation such as health and safety laws.


Training Needs to Be Ongoing, Not One-Off

A common mistake made by managers is to think that by providing training once to employees they will then be proficient, know everything, will remember it all and require no further training in the future.

The reality is that training is similar to business coaching in that sessions performed over time rather than a single, one-off event are by far more effective and bring about superior results. Not only do a lot of skills require more than one session in order to teach all of the information, but the human brain is not perfect at retaining information, and as time goes by more of what was taught in the training event will be forgotten. For this reason, refresher training is essential to keep the information and ideas taught at the forefront of the worker's mind when they are carrying out their workplace duties.


Refresher Training Sessions are So Important

Whilst training employees in new areas and attempting to teach them new skills is highly beneficial for their personal development and the skills sets they are able to bring to their job role for the benefit of the company, it is vital that managers do not let them forget and lose the skills that have already been taught to them on previous training sessions. In this case retraining may be just as beneficial, if not more so, than training in a completely new subject area. It may be better to do a few things well than to try and do everything averagely.
