Is Training Really Necessary?

“The only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave is not training your employees and having them stay” Henry Ford

Well-crafted and delivered ongoing training and professional development not only provides benefits to individuals, but also to the organisation and the industry.

The primary purpose of any training is to improve efficiency and productivity. By investing in and developing your staff (through regular training) they will have a much higher sense of job satisfaction, which can improve their motivation towards their work. This increases staff retention and productivity, directly improving the profitability of your business.

Benefits for your business:
  • reduces employee turnover
  • improves business performance and productivity, resulting in financial gain
  • up-skills existing workforce
  • increases staff motivation and morale
  • increases your competitive advantage
Benefits for your employees:
  • builds confidence
  • improves self-esteem
  • employees feel valued
  • increases their chance of promotion and/or a raise
  • learning new skills can help keep the mind young

Staff training and development goes hand in hand with business growth and should not be viewed as an unnecessary expense, but rather as imperative for the business, its employees and for the future of the industry.

As the construction industry continues to grow, so will the demand for first-class training. At the Construction Training Hub, we bring together the best industry professionals (who are highly regarded in the fields of construction law, dispute avoidance and dispute resolution) to deliver practical, relevant and high-quality training. Our seminars are focused on construction contract and project management, such as practical guides to particular forms of contracts, delay and damages claims and effective project management. We also offer bespoke training to suit your specific requirements.

We shall be announcing our first trainers soon and shortly after will be publishing our public training schedule for the remainder of the year. If you or your organisation need to be at the cutting edge of construction management, then keep checking our website and social media for details.
