Why You Need Well Trained Employees

Why You Need Well Trained Employees


In business, all roads lead to the bottom line.  You might be thinking... "How can training my employees help my bottom line… isn't training an expense!?"  Training leads to more satisfied workers that can take on new responsibilities and work more effectively. Studies have shown that trained employees have higher job satisfaction and are more productive. Therefore, a well-trained employee is happier, and on average, is a longer tenured employee; both of which help reduce cost and increase profits.


Benefits of Training Longer Tenured Employees:

According to a report by the NACS CCRRC, “*top companies investing in front line training average 72% longer retention” of employees.  This increase in tenure may reduce your employee churn by 25% per year, and a savings of approximately $10,150 in annual turnover expense.  What could you do with an extra $10k?
