Autodesk.com give us 6 important bits of advice about why training is so important in the workplace. Check it out:
1. Untrained Employees = Unhappy Employees
Employees who feel inadequate, underachieving, or unsupported are unhappy. They aren’t satisfied in their work, which will cause them to underperform, make mistakes, and not care about their work product. That costs the business in lost time and money.
2. Untrained Workers Have a Low Production Value
The quality of their work is lower and of less value. The quality in performance is lower than it could (or should) be.
3. Untrained Workers Are Inefficient
More time (and therefore money) and effort is spent when employees aren’t fully or properly trained to perform their tasks or to fulfill their responsibilities. It takes them longer to do the work.
4. Lost Time/Money Due to Mistakes
When an untrained worker makes a mistake, the time and materials used are lost. The work then has to be done again. Or worse, the inadequate product was delivered to the client.
5. An Increase in Miscellaneous Expenses
These are more difficult to track or attribute to untrained workers, but they are there. Creating a CAD drawing incorrectly means reprinting the file. That means it takes more time to fix the mistake, more materials cost in paper and ink, and more time rechecking the work. If it were done correctly the first time, these costs wouldn’t be there.
6. Insufficient Staff Training Means Lost Customers
Untrained employees can cause many of the mistakes listed above, and those mistakes and inefficiencies can cause your business to lose customers. That is the worst possible scenario, but it can happen.
