The Right Way to Grow as an Organization

No other year has ever been as difficult for those involved in corporate training and professional development as 2020. Although, with constant adaptations, disruptions, and adjustments, businesses have naturally had other priorities to navigate, corporate training has not been completely forgotten about. In fact, businesses have had to train their people to adjust and adapt throughout the year, by being reactive, agile, and robust throughout.

The reason is simple. What businesses want from their employees is for them to continually strive to improve themselves and their work, which of course results in an improved workforce and more capable individuals. While self-study is part of that, and it was heavily encouraged during the lockdown, there is also a considerable responsibility on the part of businesses to develop and introduce effective training programs that staff can opt-in or out of. Companies who develop their staff often do better at keeping them, and by creating initiatives to learn, they can help to develop a culture of learning. A new part of this trend that we've seen in 2021 is businesses asking their learners `What do you want to learn about?', rather than deciding for them.

Training presents a prime opportunity to expand the knowledge base of all employees, but many employers in the current climate find development opportunities expensive. Employees attending training sessions also miss out on work time which may delay the completion of projects.

The return on investment from training and development of employees is really a no brainer.
