Training isn’t just important to any company, it is vital. Although there are many categories of training such as management training and or sales training, employees with Project Management skills are an important asset to any organisation.
Many businesses already recognise that investing in training has a positive impact on improving staff knowledge and skills. However, some are less aware that good quality training has much wider reaching benefits than teaching core skills or ensuring compliance with mandatory training requirements. Providing good quality training for employees demonstrates that staff are valued by the business and is instrumental in boosting staff morale as well as the bottom line. The added advantage of investing in training for existing company employees is that they will already be familiar with the company culture, the company mission and vision, and company goals. They will therefore be more likely to identify how what they learn in training can be applied in the workplace.
Here are some reasons to consider taking a training course, no matter how much you know:
1. To refresh your skills sets. It's easy to get accustomed to doing things "a certain way“, but sometimes "a certain way" is no longer applicable. Keep sharp by refreshing your skills.
2. To learn new skills. We can't all be good at everything. Pick one new skill a year to learn and add to your toolbox.
3. To see and hear ideas from different angles. Especially if you are an independent contractor, it can be hard to hear new ideas. Taking a new training course gives you the opportunity to get new ideas and new perspectives, to see new markets, and hopefully, to win new business.
4. To increase your marketability. Many educational courses offer you the opportunity to promote your specialty and expertise—and especially to get it right on social media—and to elevate your marketability with your clients.
5. Knowledge is power! Every educational program is designed to help you increase your efficiency, and grow professional and personally. Once you have the knowledge, no one can take it from you.
