Today's employers need to take an active part in staff development if they are to address market demands. No job requires just one skill and the balance between retaining skills and developing new ones is the key to getting the most out of your employees. The benefits of having a trained member of staff will contribute to the efficient operation of the business. The skills gained may add to the bottom line and can lead to better management decision-making, improved morale and enhancing the reputation of the business.
Havering College have recently achieved the Training Quality Standard and this standard is a key element in the Government's drive to make training provision more responsive to the needs of employers.
