Why invest in training?

We provide courses to help employees work together, communicate with clients and give them skills for the future. Once the training is completed, your employees should feel more confident, efficient and effective in their job roles. This in turn helps you, the employer, retain staff, increase productivity and improve customer, client and colleague interactions.

Studies have shown that high staff turnover can be very costly for a business with replacing an employee costing between six and nine months of their salary.

Having a strong training programme and being known as an employer who invests in their staff, can enhance your company reputation and attract higher quality talent to work for you.

Training helps businesses to overcome challenges in our current turbulent market.

Here are some of the challenges businesses face when they decide to invest in training:

Our staff compete against each other rather than working together

We have a very young workforce and they don’t know how to communicate professionally

We’ve always done things in the same way and we need to be ready to change to compete in the current marketplace

We have a number of employees straight from school who don’t know how to apply their knowledge within the workplace

We don’t know how to communicate with our target audience effectively

 

Bespoke Training

We recognise that each business has its own unique challenges, so all our courses can be adapted to suit your needs. This includes providing courses online rather than face-to-face or using blended learning to combine the two. Our courses are very interactive with delegates getting the chance to discuss with each other, practise skills and take part in exercises to ensure they understand and retain what they are learning.

Award Winning

You can be confident in the quality of our courses as we were awarded Best Workplace Skills Training Provider 2018 & 2019 in the Greater London Enterprise Awards, but more importantly because our clients keep coming back to us, so we must be doing something right!
