Impact of Training and Development to Employee Performance


Impact of Training and Development to Employee Performance

 

Human minds are puzzles that can be the hardest to decipher. Each man has a unique reason on why they do a certain activity. Especially choosing a job. How do people choose their profession? Most people’s choices are based from their interest. What job can be done without ever considering it as a job but as a hobby? A work that you will never get tired of doing no matter how distant your retirement age may come. Some people choose it because they know they will excel l on it. People also choose their job s according to the profit. To them, their profession is an investment to future gains. What job can give me the highest compensation? What are the possibilities for more income? Few people choose their profession based on both given factors. What job which is closest to my interest can bring me the most salary? Whatever the case may be, at one point in time, people turn to  burn out. It will no longer matter whether they love their profession or the profit that comes from their job is endless. It just snaps out of them and at once, their performances are affected.

This is where training and development comes to the picture for rescue.

What are some of the reasons why training and development in companies are initiated? First and foremost it is to become up to date with the current trends. Being informed gives employee the confidence that they still have the right knowledge for their job. More confidence then generates smooth performance.

Another reason is when a new practice is in need of testing. Training the employees for the new practice will be the foundation of the scrutiny. It is highly unlikely that the new trend shall succeed if the employees are unaware of the new standards. Thus, to eliminate the doubt that the reason why the newly set standards are unsuccessful because the employees are untrained, training must be performed.

Employees also tend to get more encouraged knowing that their knowledge and skills will be honed more for their improvement. Having trainings every once in a while gives employee a productive break from the busy schedules, thus, avoiding burnouts.

Companies offering training and development for their workers on a regular basis tend to have better image than those that do not do so. It gives people the picture that the institution takes notice of the importance of becoming up to date. This image gives the employee the correct motivation that they are well taken care of by the company. They will know that the company to which they belong to cares about their professional well being. By this, enthusiasm towards working will take place.

Most of the time, trainings are general in nature. Unless there is a new practice to be initiated or when there is a specific task to which employees should be trained upon, common topics on training courses are given.

One is communication. How do I communicate to my colleagues? What do I do to transfer information to the higher positions? How do I give my subordinates a task? This training caters for the professionalism of a worker both on oral and written communication.

Another topic that should be offered is computer skills. In today’s time where in data production, retrieval and management is greatly affected by Information, Communications and Technology, skills in using a computer is a must. Since less time is eaten by recording and recovering important data, more time can be used for other productive reasons such as evaluation.

Ethics is another topic that brings about good relationship among workers. Providing them trainings for this topic gives them the benchmark on what to do on a specific situation so that conflicts from misunderstanding may be avoided. Harmonious relationship among employees sets up a good working atmosphere and makes the employees more focused on their job rather than thinking about an enraged colleague.

In an industrial setting, safety should not be overlooked. The consistent feeling that they are safe gives employees the grounds to move freely without thinking about the dangers in their location. Things that should be done in case an emergency occurs should be clearly stated in this course so that the employees are prepared and their performances will not be hampered.

A lot of training topics can be covered for a period of time. It is entirely upon the discretion of the company to distribute those topics accordingly. One thing is for sure, training and development boosts the performances of employees in one way or another. It helps them become more motivated and updated at the same time. The company image is also placed on a higher level. It is safe to say then, that training and development benefits both the employees and the company to which they belong to..
