How to Supercharge Your Team's Development for the Long-Term

Amerisleep Co-founder and CEO Firas Kittaneh offers this perspective on why investing in training and development is essential for companies:

“Each time our employees improve their operational efficiency and effectiveness, what happens is our leadership team is less burdened with day-to-day operations and more available to focus on opportunities and solutions that have a much larger impact on the overall company.”

For companies struggling to measure the impact of their training and development efforts Kittaneh suggests looking at three metrics:

  • Productivity
  • Quality of deliverables
  • Influence on sales

letzNav Takeaway: Increasing productivity is one of the key benefits of an effective training program. One of the quickest ways to increase employee productivity is to decrease the amount of time they spend trying to use your enterprise software. Providing training and on-demand real-time guidance can greatly reduce the amount of time employees spend struggling to use enterprise applications.

letzNav Takeaway: As the number of remote workers increases, digital training tools will play an even more important role in employee training and development. For many companies, it’s no longer feasible to expect their entire workforce to attend classroom training sessions.

As you’re finalizing your 2019 budgets, it might be tempting to trim some from your training and development budget. But, you could pay the price later one. Investing in employee training has several benefits, mainly:

  • Training improves retention.
  • Training shows career investment.
  • Training creates higher-skilled employees.
