In today's challenging business environment, HR managers often face the difficult task of managing limited budgets whilst addressing the ever-pressing needs of their organisation. A heavy focus on workplace training is often touted as an investment better spent elsewhere. However, investing in the employees of tomorrow can yield significant benefits.
Can we avoid expensive redundancies?
Yes! On-the-job training works to enhance the skills and efficiencies of employees. Whilst it does not come with a guarantee of longevity, business needs are dynamic and to keep abreast of competition, change is essential. After all, the training needs of today will not necessarily align with those of tomorrow.
Being able to adapt to industry trends and technology improvements, and ensure streamlined, lean processes are maintained is key. Tailored workplace training fosters a culture of continuous learning, creating a workforce that is resilient and less susceptible to redundancy.
Can HR recruitment processes improve the quality of employees onboarded?
Yes! Targeted recruitment, hiring professionals with business qualifications, and leveraging a myriad of consultants who possess the desired skills and competencies means you can onboard employees who can do exactly what you need them to do.
Allocation of the training budget then works to fine-tune staff via customised training programs to address specific skill gaps. Developing a highly skilled workforce with this approach can contribute effectively to business objectives and increase productivity.
Can training preserve workplace culture?
Absolutely! Boosting staff morale and creating a workplace culture that is all-inclusive need not require a significant financial investment. HR managers can adopt any number of strategies, that when rolled out organisation-wide, can generate impressive results.
- Recognition programs: Acknowledging the efforts of employees reinforces positive behaviour and creates a culture of appreciation.
- Flexible working arrangements: Hybrid and flexible work options offer a positive work-life balance, can improve job satisfaction, and shows staff that they are trusted and respected.
- Growth opportunities: Recognising an employee's capabilities improves morale. The introduction of workplace mentorship or buddy programs allows staff to partake in knowledge-sharing sessions. Regular updates on the progress of important initiatives helps foster a sense of belonging.
