At Veteran Fire Safety, we know how important it is for staff at all levels to have the adequate training needed to carry out their roles effectively, as well as having a development plan allowing people to continually grow. We are very passionate about creating and delivering high-quality training designed to support our clients and their businesses with any training needs, offering a variety of training in Fire Safety, First Aid, Manual Handling and more.
Having an up-to-date learning and development plan has never been so important as it is in today’s workforce. Current and future employees place huge value on companies that look after them and care for their future, investing in their development. A lot of research and employee feedback shows that businesses that do invest in and focus on this area have higher levels of employee engagement and enthusiasm, leading to increased productivity and staff retention.
Businesses will always evolve and change, they need to adapt to different ways of working especially if there are new policies, laws or technologies affecting their sector. However, having a good training plan with supporting procedures in place ensures that staff are well prepared to adapt as and when required.
The importance of training in our sector
Health and safety is one of the most important areas, ensuring the compliance of your business. This means making sure your staff is properly trained in the appropriate areas to adhere to any relevant rules and legislation. In turn, this requires certain processes and procedures to be in place so that everyone is working in line with the appropriate requirements, and that these are continually monitored and adapted where necessary. Training your staff to the correct levels for their roles and ensuring they are kept up-to-date with the right knowledge and skills is paramount to success.
Caring for your employees
Training and development is an amazing investment to make and shows your team that you value them, investing in their future by teaching them new and transferable skills. This will go some way in ensuring that your employees are always up-to-date on best practices, any future changes and even new skills that can improve their productivity.
One of the main reasons for people leaving their roles can be down to feeling under-valued and not having the proper tools to help them succeed in their roles. At this point when a person becomes disengaged, they can become much less productive and also start to bring other members of the workforce down with them. By investing in your staff and allowing them to develop through training and peer support, this issue can be avoided.
