  • 1. Why training your staff is important … even if they leave
  • 2. At Pathway we always hear the question ‘what if we train them and the leave?’. Businesses are often conscience that if they give their staff the best training they will stay for the training and then leave for better jobs taking their skills with them meaning that the organisation will have to start the training process all over again. What if they leave?
  • 3. As true as this question is and the reasoning behind it just think: ‘What if we don’t train staff and they STAY!?’
  • 4. Make sure that you offer the best training so that your staff feel valued! Staff are less likely to leave a place where they feel valued and part of something. To get the best out of someone you need to be willing to invest in them whatever the outcome. Training is an investment in someone
  • 5. Create a higher position for them Whether there is an increase of responsibility, better pay or bonuses or a better job title make the training something to work for your staff. If they know that they have something to work for they will perform to their best and value that you have invested and believed in their ability enough. Never underestimate the power of incentive to keep a member of staff on. If you are offering them the best, they will perform their best.
  • 6. You need them to be trained Training might be a bit of a waste if that person leaves however you need them to be trained to make your business successful. Sometimes it is just something that you need to accept.
  • 7. Make the training a team effort If you are training more than one member of staff group them together. This will make them feel part of something and a team. In these teams promote team spirit and friendship. When people feel connected to each other they are more likely to want to stay in employment with these people.
  • 8. Asking staff what training would help them to perform better will fix their eyes on their current job, give them job specific skills and focus on how they can improve within their current job. Ask staff what training they would like
  • 9. Choose people who are worth investing in It’s important to go with your instinct. If you feel like someone would do well with some training in a certain area, that someone feels under-valued or someone has really proved themselves and you can see their potential to grow within the business talk to them about training. This ‘hand-picked’ feel will make them feel special and they will respond well to the training and want to give back for you believing in them.
