Training and Workshops

Training your people to ensure they have the right skills will be one of the most important things to assist in the growth and maintenance of a healthy business.  Many managers say that they won't train or just don't train their people for various reasons, one of these being cost.  It is a well know fact that it is by far cheaper to train a current staff member that needs some upskilling than to replace them.  With training, people can achieve great things as they get to know what is expected from them in their position.

Some managers send their people on training courses expecting their skill deficiencies to be fixed when they come back onto the job.  In many instances this does not happen.

Our philosophy with training is that attending the training is only part of the desired outcome in the participants progress.   The monitoring of the team members progress when they come back onto the workplace will ensure the skills gained are being put into practice and utilised.  This is where managment can gain a great return on their investment, which all business people are wanting from having their people attend one of our training courses.

To assist in identifying your training needs, call us for a FREE TRAINING NEEDS ASSESSMENT for your business.
