Training is defined as teaching or developing oneself in any skills or knowledge with goals of improving one’s capability, capacity, productivity, and performance. There are two types of employee training: onboarding and continued. Onboarding training introduces the employee to their position, as well as company inner workings. Continued training is education that employees complete throughout their employment, which ensures they continue learning new skills throughout their career.
Both onboarding and continued training are worth investing in for employees. Here’s why:
- Continued employee training is an investment not only in the employee, but in the company as a whole. Continued education can help employees bring new ideas to their role, which further advances the company overall. When people have the skills and knowledge to do their jobs, they are more productive. They work independently, innovate, and meet challenges as they come up. In a global economy that continues to evolve, the most successful companies will be those that adapt quickly and effectively. This starts with training employees in new skills and furthering their market education.
- Both initial onboarding training and continued training are crucial in an employee’s success and allow employees to advance in their career. Continuous employee training increases agility by encouraging them to think and understand quickly. One of the key reasons for training employees is that it keeps their knowledge fresh, their skills sharp, and their confidence booming. When your existing employees see that you’re investing in their growth, they can become more engaged in their work.
- Employee training is good for company culture. When employees are continuing their education together, it fosters collaboration and engagement. Each employee comes into the company with different levels of experience. Collaborative education allows employees to brainstorm together and bring new education into the mix. A learning culture supports market adaptation, innovation, and boosts overall employee engagement.
