Corporate training: who and what for?
A question to which we give an answer through some considerations that we have realized are not always obvious or taken for granted through a series of short articles that over time will form a very small reference as a collection of ideas to improve the well-being of the company.
Corporate training as a continuous path for the well-being of the company.
From this time on we open a capsule to address an aspect that cannot be ignored in any company regardless of its size: employee training.
Let’s start from the base: who and what is company training for?
It remains obvious that it is professional updating that helps companies grow and remain competitive even in a constantly changing landscape like today’s.
Therefore, organizing a strategy aimed at corporate training that can improve the skills of one’s collaborators becomes a fundamental but at the same time complex issue.
It is about creating a learning and development path designed to face the challenges of the sector in which we operate and calibrate it to the needs of employees.
We are in a historical phase in which digitalization is accelerating greatly and there are very important factors to be taken into account at the level of company training.
Many activities can be carried out remotely, others can be conducted through virtual reality (imagine the training for some types of manual procedures) and all need to meet flexibility and modulation requirements.
Corporate training may be necessary for the entire company population and it is good to keep in mind how inevitable it is that the staff within companies is made up of individuals belonging to different generations. Everyone needs business training.
If we talk about age this certainly does not represent a barrier, as well as cultural differences. If anything, we will face different approaches to training.
Even if we talk about jobs, approaches will change: evidently a senior manager will need a different type of training than the one we should dedicate to a newly hired team member.
The task of corporate training is to provide employees with valuable resources and information that enable them to carry out their work more efficiently and effectively, allowing the company to compete better on the market.
The next step is to illustrate the importance of motivating staff.
