You are right in stating that training programs can be difficult if budget constraints won’t allow for the added expense to run them. I would like to also focus on something else you also mentioned, which is employee retention. Employee retention is one of the most important elements that HR can focus on for any company. Everyone must set professional and personal goals to be successful and employee retention percentages or numbers is a great professional goal to meet. Employee training programs were mentioned as part of employee retention because employees will be more willing to maintain loyalty with a company if they feel that the company is working hard for them. Management is responsible for helping this cause because they are the people working with the employees on a daily basis. Management should receive more training then other employees to ensure they understand and have to skills to implement employee retention strategies.
What are some things you think about be involved with employee retention training? Why?
