Training and Seminars
- Do you need to upskill your staff to improve company performance and stay competitive?
- Have you sent staff out on training only to find their expensive learning never percolates through your company?
- Have you found that training courses don't quite "hit the spot" for your business needs?
- Do you find it hard to spare your staff from your office to attend courses?
Would you be suprised to know that upto 80% of training costs are wasted?Ref "Transfer of Training" by Mary Broad and John Newstrom
We agree! That is why BUILDING KNOWLEDGETM provides industry-specific training from a point of knowledge and experience. We never just deliver generic lectures; so we don't waste your time or your money.
A Better Skilled Workforce is a Strong Performance Differentiator!
Skills development has become a crucial issue as we enter a period of severe skills shortages across the entire range of trades and professions working in the construction industry. In the best organizations, education is no longer the first to be cut back in a downturn. Rather, best-in-class corporate education is making a difference to the bottom line. So, how best to capture the "education dividend"?
Targeted Education Provides the Best ROI - That's why we provide customised progams
Our experience proves that specific and customised education programmes yield optimum results for employers. Generic courses can be valuable for less experienced staff, but most people learn more quickly and retain the learning better if they can see the immediate relevance of thesubject to your business and apply it to their daily work without the need to adapt and synthesise it to their needs.
Being from the construction sector, BUILDING KNOWLEDGETM works with companies to develop leadership and business education programs that address and answer specific needs, in the least time and for the least overall cost.
Improving staff skills and knowledge offers your company significant tangible benefits in:
Why? When organizations know they have a broadly educated employee base, they have been shown to be more willing to enter new markets and expand their business into new areas.
Why? Intenational research indicates better educated employees with up-to-date skills are more likely to work efficiently and have good morale.
Why? Because by providing employees careers paths and on-going development, they are less likely to leave for another employer - particularly important in today's environment of chronic skills shortages. Many organizations encourage on-going academic and skills development, both as a way to build capability and as a retention tool.
