Today’s companies are under constant pressure to prove themselves in the illustration of market competition, which requires constant monitoring of changes in the business environment, monitoring of new trends and tendencies, analysis of competition, application of new technologies…
How to monitor the competition? By what means to fight in this (ruthless) fight?
The general trend in the modern world is moving towards a knowledge society. Such a society promotes the concept of lifelong learning and education. Knowledge in such a society becomes the most important factor of development, it is the foundation of a company’s competitive advantage and ensures its long-term progress.
In the time of rapid changes, formal education becomes insufficient, its application becomes obsolete, it needs to be improved and modernized. And not only that: formal education does not offer the development of personal skills, which are necessary in everyday business, and which, only combined with professional knowledge, give the right effects in work.
In contrast to this formal form of education, there is also the so-called informal training of employees. This way of education is preferred today: first of all, it does not take too much time, and employees in a short time, on examples of practice, master new skills, learn the application of new tools or new methodologies.
Informal trainings have been developed in such a way that every participant can start applying what they have learned on the same day. Trainings are most often created according to the needs and requirements of clients, and the emphasis is on interactive and experiential learning
Companies in the region insist on training employees in the areas of personal skills improvement, so some of the most popular trainings are in the following areas: business communication skills, presentation skills, time management skills, meeting management, conflict management, successful negotiation skills, successful leadership skills team, employee motivation…
The trainings achieve top business results, raise work morale, motivation and productivity of employees. Employees come up with new ideas, knowledge and experiences.
Training can be a way to introduce employees to the company, but also a means of additional motivation of employees (How many times have you heard someone when choosing a job to give preference to organizations where “they can learn something”, compared to those who pay more?)
Companies often opt for informal training of their employees, when new business opportunities open up for them that require quick learning and urgent application of new knowledge, which, in turn, speaks in favor of investing in employee knowledge is the best investment in company development.
Today, successful companies follow the development of their employees, in accordance with the company’s development strategy, create a plan and strategy for employee training, which means that in order to successfully manage the company-successfully manage the knowledge of their company.
