Will Business Coaching Develop Staff So Much That They Will Leave?

Employees With Many Qualifications May Be Eyeing up a Different Job

One reason for many managers to limit or even eliminate completely any budget or time for training and development of their staff is a fear that developing them will result in them being so knowledgeable and talented that they will leave the company. Managers are reluctant to invest in training up one or more of their employees if the person then were to leave in order to get a higher paid job for example.


It May Be Bad... But The Alternative is Worse

The truth is that staff members can and do leave companies. The provision of training and business coaching for employees may in some ways be considered a risk by some, but the reality is that it is essential for the creation of a workforce which is efficient, productive and achieves the goals and objectives of the organisation.

A poorly trained workforce will not reach its maximum potential without proper training to increase the skills of the individuals, not to mention their team working and ability to work together.


Business Coaching and Training May Actually Prevent an Employee from Wanting to Leave

As well as training being necessary, it can actually have an opposite effect to the fears that many managers have, insofar as employees who are receiving business coaching and training will feel like the company is serious about their personal development. If this is combined with the potential for advancement and increased responsibility, and subsequently an increased pay structure that normally accompanies it, then employees will have very little incentive to leave.

So by investing in training and coaching not only will the business benefit from a more talented and productive worker, but it should also actually increase the chances of that person staying with the company.


Using Business Coaching to Identify and Put Right Issues Affecting the Employee

Additionally, engaging in business coaching with employees allows a manager to have an open and frank discussion with that person in order to identify any issues or problem areas which are causing concerns for that individual.

Obviously a worker is much more likely to stay with a company if they feel happy there, so using business coaching to identify and set about addressing any reasonable concerns they have can be tremendously important to prevent employees from leaving the business.
