Whether you’re already a large employer or an ambitious start-up, you need to employ people who need to know what you’re all about, and specifically how they can contribute to doing what you do even better. Because, if your employees don’t have the skills your business needs for the future, then what future does your business have to look forward to?
Companies that are committed to training and developing their people further prosper. That’s a fact. So you need to start looking into the many independent training and development agencies that are out there – a few clicks on the web will connect you to everything from personal and practical advice through to assistance in introducing organisational change through to sourcing funding for your staff training needs.
Would you be surprised to know that over 130,000 businesses in England use Apprenticeship schemes to meet predicted future skills shortages? Or that Apprenticeships can include existing employees and new recruits equally, as well as covering skills from business administration to customer service to specialist areas like engineering, hairdressing, veterinary nursing, even football? There are currently over 180 Apprenticeship schemes to choose from, and most can be tailored to meet your own specific business needs. It’s a fantastic way to help your business remain competitive by identifying and addressing skills gaps and then working with a training provider to set up the programme/s that will bring your people, and your business, more than up-to-speed.
