We’ve all been there – standing on the platform while the train gets later and later until finally the departure board flashes a single, ominous word: Cancelled. We all recognise that desperate scramble to make alternate arrangements, calling taxis, sprinting for buses, texting and ringing colleagues to apologise that we’re running late. And you can just guarantee that it’s around this moment that the heavens decide to open. Sigh. If only there was a less traumatic way to get to a training session…
Fortunately there is. More and more organisations are now using an in-house approach to deliver training to their colleagues. Here at RoSPA we find this particular approach to be an extremely beneficial root to learning as we can adapt a course to meet a business’ exact requirements, offering complete flexibility in terms of where and when they choose to train. We’ve put together a list of benefits to help shed some light on why in-company training may be the best choice for your business’ training needs:
Training cost saving
Whilst it’s easy to think in-company training by an external company might stretch budgets, it’s worth thinking again. The cost per delegate is typically less when compared to sending the same number on to public training courses. This is mainly due to employees not needing to travel any further than their offices which incurs additional costs.
Running an in-house training course allows the training to be solely focused on the specific subjects and skills that are relevant to your business. Public scheduled courses and e-learning will often be generic for businesses of any sector or size that attend them.
Organising training for a group of people all with their own schedules can be a very difficult task. Why not fit around the working schedule of your staff and at a location they come to everyday? It’s also in an environment people know and are familiar with which is a more relaxing and productive learning environment.
Having a room of people from different teams and levels can encourage team work and communication. This is a great result as it’s often within social learning where ideas are exchanged. This will also likely lead to increased awareness and understanding of each other’s roles as well as staff morale.
It’s well documented that more cars on the road means higher CO2 emissions. If you’re concerned about doing your part for the environment, by undertaking an in-company training option your business can significantly reduce its carbon footprint.
