Human resources management isn't a nice to have - it is vital for the future of any organisation.
Zig Ziglar once said ‘there's only one thing worse than training your staff and having them leave, and that's not training them and having them stay.'
Sadly in a downturn the first person who tends to be made redundant is either the HR manager or the training staff. Most organisations see training as a cost rather than an investment. Yet without training and ongoing development your staff will become bored, complacent, demotivated and unproductive.
Statistics suggest as many as 75% of our staff are bored and disengaged. Statistics also suggest that one of the biggest reasons employees leave an organisation is that there is no chance for training or development.
There is no excuse for any business to say they can't afford to train their people. Check out The Corporate Tool-box and you'll see for as little as US$10 you can find e-books with tips, tools and processes for growing your people. Training will never be cheaper than that.
