Why Software Training Is a Priority
In a time when budgets remain tight, training can be used as an incentive in place of, or alongside, monetary advancement.
Speaking of money, while training requires a financial outlay, it doesn't have to be expensive, and the payback is often many times over. Organizations that view training as an investment for improving specific skills, as opposed to considering it a cost center, generally experience the biggest returns.
With an array of training formats available, many training programs can be instituted relatively inexpensively. For example, Michael Kennedy, the owner of Alpha Graphics in Rancho Cordova, Calif., attributes his store's higher revenue—four to six times that of his other stores—to employees' use of video-based training from Total Training.
Now more than ever, with companies emphasizing human resources and educational advancement, the divide between those who train and those who don't will grow. The time to make the most of your work force is now.
