Human Resources

What is training?

Training means helping people to learn how to do something, telling people what they should or should not do, or simply giving them information. Training isn’t just about formal ‘classroom' courses.

Many companies train their staff, but the question that comes to mind is: why is training your staff important? A business is not just a mass of people coming together to work on a daily basis, it is a team or a unit that works together in order to achieve a collective goal and ultimately generate profits for the business. That is precisely why it is important to train your staff adequately.

There are many benefits one can obtain by investing in proper staff training, number one being efficiency. A well trained staff will help reduce the risks of potential mishaps within the business, and it will condition the employee to give his or her best in any given task. Every business has its own culture and way of doing things, and when a new employee enters the so-called 'corporate family' it is vital to instruct your employee on the know-how of the business and how it operates.

Why provide Human Resource training?

Providing Human Resources information and training helps you to:

  • Ensure that supervisors and managers who work for you know how to work effectively and are competent in making decisions
  • Develop a positive culture, trust and confidence between employee and employer
  • Ensure that people who work for you know how to react appropriately;
  • Meet your legal duties:
  • Can help you avoid the financial costs, such as, lost production and de motivated staff, Tribunal and legal.

Don’t forget that your insurance might not cover all these costs.

Like many employers, you may not be in a position to provide this training on your own. DTS does not supply ‘off-the shelf’ programmed training but instead provide quality bespoke courses specific to our client’s needs. This may consist of tool-box talks or formal classroom training.
