We are beginning a two-part series on how companies can reap the benefits of providing ongoing training for their employees. Access Computer Training (ACT) is a preferred provider of professional development and computer training for employers throughout the Tampa Bay area. Many companies qualify for training reimbursement through the Employed Worker Training Program and/or Incumbent Worker Training Program grants. Below are some ways your company can benefit from offering ongoing training to your employees:
Helps with Recruitment
Employee development such as free computer training helps companies attract high quality employees. When a company invests in its employees, they give them the opportunity to not only enhance their skills, but also gain important knowledge that can help them earn raises and promotions. Free computer classes and other professional development course options can help make your employee benefits package more attractive.
Providing workplace training helps improve employee confidence. ACT’s Microsoft Office training, for example, goes beyond the basics to demonstrate the most effective use of the programs and even highlights some shortcuts. Microsoft Excel training is one of our most popular Microsoft Office training courses. When an employee is equipped with more than just the basic skills to perform their job, their confidence skyrockets.
Reduces Employee Turnover
Confidence has a direct impact on employee morale. When employees are happy, they are less likely to search for new employment. The Employed Worker Training Program and Incumbent Worker Training Program were created in part to help companies provide opportunities – including professional development and computer training – to their employees in an effort to help them further their skills and reduce turnover.
ACT not only offers affordable training, but we can help you apply for Employed Worker Training Program and/or Incumbent Worker Training Program grants which reimburse employers up to 75% of the training costs. Give ACT a call today and learn more about how we can help!
