If you were specified two options choice between two different pilots, the first one who was a skilled pilot and the other one was an unskilled pilot, which one would you pick? Even if there was no “up-front” cost at all for the untrained pilot you still wouldn’t do it. Yet many of the business and organization’s owners do not realize the major role of training their employees.
Most managers in a business would not hire unqualified employees but a good amount of businesses hire under-qualified employees. Most of the time the reason employees get under-qualified is because of the changing technology or the new development methods that take place. Don’t get me wrong but training does consume a good amount of money. In fact, the two major resources used for training in a job is money and time.
Below are some facts that underscore the value of training.
Untrained workers translate to unhappy workers
Employees who feel deficient, mentally underdeveloped, or libellous are unhappy. They are not completely satisfied with the work they perform, which is going to result in underperforming, making silly mistakes most of the time and not care about the product they work on at all. That obviously costs the organization in lost in money and as well as time.
Unskilled employees have a low production value
The standard of their effort and work is much lower and of low value. The quality in implementation is lesser than it should (or could) be.
Unskilled employees are inefficient
Additional time (and hence money) and effort are given when workers are not completely or properly skilled or trained. More time and effort is spent when working on their given tasks or to achieve their responsibilities. It takes them longer than expected for them to do the task.
Waste Money/Time Due to Mistakes
The time when an unskilled employee makes an error, the material used in the process and the time taken is all wasted. The task has to be done all over again from scratch. It can get much worse if that lacking product was delivered to the customer or the client.
An Increase In Various Expenses
These are generally much harder to locate or characterized by unskilled employees, but they are still there. Drawing a CAD illustration wrong means reprinting the document Which means it consumes more time to correct the fault that you made, more material expenses in ink and paper and obviously more time rechecking the task all over again. These costs wouldn’t have even existed if the work was done the correct way in the first place.
Lacking Staff Training Means Lost Customers
Unskilled workers can cause all of the mistakes listed above and that inefficiency and faults can cause your organization to lose many of your loyal customers or clients. That is the worst scenario that could happen, but it can.
Employee Training programs and costs have an effortless budgeted up-front cost of time and money. Those bar items are not easy to operate on a tight budget. Nevertheless, additional costs of imperfectly trained workers proved the major role of training the employees. These expenses are more often unseen or ignored because these cost does not come in the form of line items.
Having a skilled team is that your team members are learning newly developed skills that can enhance production, save you a lot of time spent in the creation of the product (or service), decrease down production expenses, decrease mistakes and faults, establish faith and confidence in your team and organize a much better working atmosphere. Investment to grow your employee’s skill sets is an investment in your own company because when everyone gets better, everything gets better.
