Why Employers should Invest in Training

As an employer, you will be familiar with the word ‘training’, but why should you spend money and resources on training your staff? 

Surprise surprise, training your staff can sufficiently improve business performance, profit and staff morale. Did you know that 7 out of 10 people say that training and development opportunities influence their decision to stay with a company? Employees who receive the necessary training gain a greater understanding of their job responsibilities and are therefore more able to perform their job i.e. decreased staff turnover.

Let’s discuss some of the other benefits below:

  • Increased job satisfaction and morale among employees
    Investing time, money and resources in training makes your employees feel valued. Employees who feel appreciated and challenged through training opportunities are more likely to feel satisfied towards their job, increasing the overall morale!
  • Increased employee motivation
    When employees understand their job, it builds their confidence! And with increased confidence, your employees will perform better.
  • Increased efficiencies in processes, resulting in financial gain
    Studies have shown that productivity increases when a company invests in training. With an increased efficiency, tasks are completed more successfully, improving the company’s turnover.
  • Increased capacity to adopt new technologies and methods
    If the training program addresses an employees weaknesses and strengthens, it will ensure that everyone is on the same page! This means that all your employees will share similar skills and knowledge, making it easier to adopt any changes within the company such as new technologies or methods.
  • Increased innovation in strategies and products
    Training can trigger ideas that an employee never thought of before. Learning new things could encourage more creativity and innovation!
  • Reduced employee turnover
    A valued and challenged employee will be more engaged and less likely to leave the company. Even though initial costs in training might seem pricey, it will be worth it when your recruitment costs decrease.
  • Other financial benefits to employers through traineeships and apprenticeships
    • payroll tax exemption (under $100K)
    • New worker funding – state & commonwealth funding
    • Stakeholder Funding (CTF & ABBTF)

Skill Hire really helped me to see that I can accomplish something if I set my mind to it and I completed my course 2 months prior to the completion date. Cheers guys!


Skill Hire are helpful and professional. Nicola was attentive to all my needs. Their timesheets systems were a breeze and always update us with messages. Thanks Skill Hire


I just wanted to thank Skill Hire's EST Trainers. Nathan is the absolute best trainer I’ve ever had privilege to meet by a WIDE margin and I appreciate everything done for all of us. I’m ecstatic about the internship opportunity.


Not only did Skill Hire respond quickly to our urgent need, your team took the time to understand our organization and our needs. The people sent to help out were outstanding and their ability to rapidly adapt to our workplace eased our burden during what was a very challenging few months.


My son has thoroughly enjoyed the Construction Pathways course. He spent the last 18 months being home schooled and not socializing with anyone so to see him eager to get up and leave the house every day still blows my mind. Simon, thank you for your understanding and taking extra care with my son.


I wanted to say a big thank you to Skill Hire and the team, especially Wayne for such an amazing experience for our students. All of our students were thoroughly engaged with the course and learned many valuable skills.
