Studies have shown that workers who receive regular training from their employers are more productive and develop a stronger sense of company loyalty. (TrainingMag.com).
"When employees feel valued, they perform better. Customer satisfaction and staff retention are a direct reflection of the type of environment you create for your employees," says Chuck O'Keefe, national manager, associate dean for the University of Toyota.
And this has a direct impact on the bottom line. San Diego consultant Bob Nelson encourages clients to invest in and show employees that you care enough about them to help them grow. "Stop thinking about employee training as a business luxury. Training isn't just something we do when we have money to blow. Training is something we do to differentiate ourselves from the competition."
One of the fastest-growing sectors of Human Resources management today is Internet-based training, reports Oracle Corporation. Why is this? According to Dave Meyer, Founder and President of Training4Business, a provider of an e-Learning software product that is customizable and incorporates step-by-step proven learning methods, "Not only is online training convenient, accessible 24/7 and capable of providing timely training materials, but it is remarkably affordable." In comparison to traditional instructor-led courses, e-Learning can reduce training costs by 30-60 per cent and cut the time needed for instruction by 20-40 per cent reported the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative.
Bersin and Associates estimates that the number of companies using online learning to train employees will grow by 50 percent in 2005. Just as the Internet has changed the way companies do business, it is dramatically changing the delivery of workplace education and training. Both the content and the processes of learning have been profoundly altered because of the accessibility of information and the multi-way interactivity provided by the Internet, according to author Dr. Frank Rennie.
"If you look at all the things that revolve around the employee, e-Learning is a big piece of that picture," said IBM Senior Product Manager Chris Reckling in a recent interview.
Education and Development were indicated by a Merrill Lynch report profiling the US market for corporate training services as the number one source of competitive advantage for companies.
