Effects of corporate training on employee performance

You can reap the rewards of providing training for your employees because well-trained staff help increase productivity and profits. Investing in employee training should improve staff retention rates, customer satisfaction and creativity for new ideas.


1- Saving Time and Costs

Investment in training improves staff performance. Poor performance often results when employees don’t know exactly what they’re supposed to do, how to do their jobs or why they need to work a certain way. Training can help solve these performance problems by explaining the details of the job. Improved performance from employee training can reduce staff turnover. Better performance from employees typically creates less need for supervision and brings increased staff output.

2- Employee Satisfaction

Job satisfaction generally increases, and self-esteem improves when employees better understand the workings of the company. Training can also enhance morale on the job and loyalty to the company. Staff who believe their company offers excellent training opportunities are generally less likely to leave their companies.

3- Expectations and Needs

Training plays a key role in employee commitment. The training program must meet expectations and needs of the employees, though. Companies are more likely to retain employees who view their training as relevant to their jobs and subsequently have a positive commitment to their company. A successful training program consists of management providing employees with accurate information and communication about the training as well as a program that ensures that training is relevant to their jobs.

4- Turnover Costs

Keeping well-trained employees pays off significantly for companies because the cost of employee turnover can be high. Costs include separation costs, such as exit interviews, administrative functions related to termination, severance pay and unemployment compensation. Replacement costs consist of attracting applicants, entrance interviews, testing, travel and moving expenses, pre-employment administrative expenses, medical exams, and employment information.

5- Training Factors

Many factors determine whether a training program will be effective for a company. Cavendish International will advise you on which training programs are most suitable for your organisation.
