I’m happy to say that March has always proven to be a busy period for me. With the end of the financial tax year companies seem keen to spend some of what’s left of their budget on providing training to their staff. It’s great to see a company investing in their employees and ensuring their skills stay up-to-date, but it’s also very telling. This busy end of year implies some companies wait to see what money is ‘left over’ before organising training rather than making training a priority.
Every time I deliver a training session the general feedback from the learner is one of enthusiasm. Having gained new skills, delegates are keen to get started utilising this new knowledge and approach their next project in a way that will streamline their workflow and get the job done more efficiently. Using best practices they are confident they will be delivering a more accurate piece of work and within a quicker than before timeframe. So with that said, why would you wait until next year before reaping the benefits of getting your employees trained properly? Rather than seeing if you can afford to spend money on training, decide this year to invest in training.
