The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) earlier this month published its Quarterly Economic Survey, the findings of the survey indicate skills shortages are reaching critical levels.
Dr Adam Marshall, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce, said:
‘’Labour and skills shortages are set to be the biggest potential drag anchor on business in 2018, since ultimately it is people that make businesses work. Business itself must do more – by training and investing wherever possible in people’’
We know that happy staff means retained staff, Training that helps each employee grow their skills and knowledge to better perform their current job. The opportunity for development also increases employee loyalty, and thus retention, and helps you attract the best possible employees.
By training and up-skilling your workforce, businesses can benefit from:
- a healthier workforce − higher levels of training correlate with better health and wellbeing
- reduced absence from sickness or stress related illness
- retention of staff
- strengthening your team and increasing staff morale
- success − companies that invest in training are more likely to succeed
The way modern business is conducted and implemented has changed dramatically in recent decades with the flexibility that technological advances offers. This coupled with how companies facilitate modern work force demands to achieve a better work/life balance such as flexible working hours and reduction of commuters has led to increase in remote working across multiple sites or from home.
This however, has clashed with traditional and development delivery. The positive effect that high standards of training and development has on the workforce in terms of increased morale, productivity and retention is well researched and accepted and can be the difference between failure and success. Businesses have had to be creative to fulfil their work force needs and potential, blended learning has emerged as a favourable delivery style for many leading companies.
