Let nothing stop our progress, do we invest in training?

There are different areas of life in which we need adequate training to be able to move forward and improve.

Recently listening to some thoughts from the eminent cardiologist Dr. Valentin Fuster at the newspaper El País, about how to live more years with quality of life, he pointed out that:

“Education is one of the three critical variables in our life, along with science and health, because a person who is more educated has many more variables to move in life and is more able to dominate the world around itself and, on the contrary, the less educated is the world dominates the person. Education is also a very important weapon for self-esteem, so that the more we know the more we are in control of ourselves and the more we can choose what is right for us. ”

But not only in the personal sphere or in life in general, also in the business world it is relevant to consider the training of our employees in a continuous manner as a good and necessary investment that contributes to a sustainable development of the organization and the loyalty of talent that, without a doubt, will result in being more competitive and we will be able to obtain better results.

Referred to the world of work, events such as the arrival of new technologies or the necessary internationalization of companies are introducing enormous changes in work methods, in positions, and in the organizations themselves. Adapting to these changes has only one way: the continuous training of workers.

 

What do we get when investing in training?

 

 

On the one hand, we enrich the skills and abilities of our workers, so that they develop professionally and with that increases productivity, there is an improvement in the management of tasks, improves competitiveness, profitability of the company and, ultimately, we add value added to organizations in an increasingly complex world.

 

On the other hand, we contribute to achieve the satisfaction, motivation and integration of the worker in relation to their tasks, because he realizes how the organization is interested in him not only as a professional but as a person and invests in his own improvement.

 

The company wants the good and the development of its workers whom it treats not as human resources, but as human beings with resources.

“Make people well so they can leave, treat them better so they do not want to do it” – Richard Branson (founder of Virgin).

 

But for investment in continuing education to bear fruit, it must be integrated into the company’s own strategy and action plan, adapted to the culture of the company and always with the mutual commitment of the general management and from the workers.

And we will also have to detect what the shortcomings are through a process of continuous evaluation of the workers and a feedback process that values ​​the training provided in terms of added value.

As we can see, there are many advantages that an organization obtains when investing in continuing education without forgetting that through it we can also transmit and consolidate the culture, values ​​and mission of the company.
