Investing in the future…OUCH! What a risky business! Investment strategies are constantly changing with the ebb and flow of the economy– and we need to adapt and change right along with them!
Workplace needs are also always changing – and you need to guess where to best to focus your energies and money.
A suggestion from the Training Department of Market Viewpoint: Invest in your people!
Investing in the development of your employees through training has always been, and continues to be, a safe and profitable investment strategy. Training delivers huge dividends in retention, morale, and loyalty!
Studies have shown that employees who do not have developmental opportunities often become bored, have low morale and may decide to seek out other opportunities.
Lack of Action Eats Profits
Replacement costs can exceed $10, 000, eating right into your profits. Perhaps as bad, dissatisfied employees stay. They share their misery with co-workers and customers, sending customer/co-worker satisfaction ratings to all-time low levels.
On the other hand, employees who receive developmental opportunities through training, benefit from improved skills and renewed confidence. They are happier, less likely to leave and will share their newfound enthusiasm with their clients and their business network.
When your staff knows you care about their future – they become your foundation for growth.
Phone skills, E-Mail Etiquette, Team Building or a work/life issue like Stress Management are only some of the topics we can custom design for your company!
