5 Benefits of Software Training

by Colin Quinn

Why should you provide your employees with software training?

Everyone knows the old proverb…

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” But what does this have to do with software training? And how does it apply to my company?

The American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) recently conducted a study of over 2,500 companies to determine how investing in software training effects a companies ROI. Using a statistical model taking into account a number of variables, ASTD found that employee training resulted in a significant improvement in employee performance and a significant return on investment.

By providing employees with training, the companies in the study gave their employees the proper tools and knowledge they needed to become more productive. That’s just one of the many reasons why CEO’s consider training to be the “backbone” of their organizations. Here are the top 5 other reasons why your organization should consider providing training for your employees:

1. Increased Profitability

There is a direct correlation between providing your employees with the proper software training they need to become more productive and an overall increase in the company’s profitability.

2. Consistent Quality

Providing employees with up-to-date software training ensures that they will be able to complete their tasks on time every-time, and in the most efficient manner possible while providing consistency and quality across the board.

3. Customer Satisfaction

Increased productivity and a higher quality of results creates a greater level of customer satisfaction and loyalty.

4. Employee Development

Providing your employees with proper training allows them to develop their individual skills, making them better able to contribute to the overall success of the organization.

5. Employee Retention

Providing training for your employees provides them with the tools to increase their skills, makes them feel more confident, and results in a greater employee retention rate.
