If I train or educate them they will leave me?

By: admin|

If I had a dollar for every time I have heard the above comment from large corporations right through to small business owners I would be able to retire. Lets now just look at a few things to disprove this myth and reasons why you should up skill your workforce or they will leave you anyway.

  • Educating your work force is one of the main reason why people stay with you, not salary which is ranked about 9th on the list of why people stay or leave
  • With skills shortages and an ageing demographic in many Australian professions it’s vital to up skill all of your work force, or they leave. Australia ranks 4th world for skilled worker shortages and 54% of employers struggle to fill job vacancies
  • It may be surprising to many that China and many other Asian countries also have skill shortages and must draw on each other to fill the gaps. China introduced 1,000,000 robots into some factories to assist with one area of skills shortages and Australian mine sites are also now increasing technology to replace skilled worker shortages
  • Employers that focused on people management skills as much as they did on other parts of their business will see a positive impact on their bottom line, basically in the sales industry to cover the cost to educate an employee costs less than one sales deal in many professions.

So the next time you feel that it is better not to train or educate your workforce understand that your employees will leave you and go to another employer that is willing to invest in their employees up skilling and education. Career pathways also are an inducement for an employee to remain with you and training plans and programmes can be designed with this in mind.

You should really moderate the responses at this website

Janos agree with your comments and apologies for not moderating this site more and will make a commitment to do so. I have entered many blogs, LinkedIn, twitter, face book and many other sites and at times forget to look in all areas. Hence you will note a decline in the number of blogs I am currently writing.
