In the last decade and a half corporatization has taken precedence and has entered in every sphere of business. Corporatization has not only smoothened and structured the traditional way of business culture but also encouraged many individuals to pursue a career in the corporate world.
The business quote ‘Employees are assets to a company’ has now been proved right with corporates actually investing in their employees. Investment does not mean giving higher pay packages or perks or facilities but investing in their career growth and skill upgradation which in turn benefit the company and its broader goals.
With improvisations and progress in technology and business practices day by day, enterprises find it convenient to train their existing employees or polish their skills time to time, rather than hiring new professionals.
One of the major determining factors of long-term profitability for any business depends upon the quality of employees and their development through training and education. Therefore most of the businesses feel that it is a good policy to hire and retain good employees by investing in their development leading to increase in their productivity.
There is a huge misconception around training where enterprises believed that it is needed only for new employees. However studies have shown that ongoing training for current employees often helps them to adjust rapidly to changing job requirements.
Some of the key reasons why businesses or corporates go for employee training and development these days are;
- Creating a readily available pool of talent that can be apt replacements for employees who may get promoted or leave the organization.
- It helps in enhancing the establishment’s ability to adopt and use technological advancements with the help of a sufficiently knowledgeable staff.
- It helps in building an efficient, effective and highly motivated team that enhances the enterprise’s competitive position apart from improving employee morale.
- Readily available human resources that can be adequately used for expansion of new programs.
Studies have shown that by training and developing its employees, enterprises have benefited in specific areas viz;
- Increased productivity.
- Financial gain resulting through increased efficiency.
- Reduced employee turnover.
- Less or no need for supervision.
There are enterprises that tie up with universities or fund their employees to pursue further studies that will help them to gain the required skills and degrees to take them ahead in their career as well as . Apart from management studies companies also encourage their employees to take up professional certification courses too.
There are many players in the market who engage in providing professional certification courses and trainings, however beating them in their game is Simplilearn. Starting from a blog in 2009, Simplilearn today is a multi-million turnover enterprise and has successfully trained more than 200,000+ professionals worldwide.
The reason Simplilearn is a preferred choice among the corporates today is because of its unique blended model of training which is a mix of online, instructor led online and classroom trainings. The blended model is something that every corporate or professional hard pressed for time would love to go for – as they get a uniform quality of content and training in every mode of training.
As Ken Wohlrob Senior Director at Random House Publishing Group says, “My overall experience with the training was good, the trainer seemed to have good knowledge on the subject and was able to present it well. The trainer made the live virtual classroom training very comfortable. And the content was very useful and it surely is a lot of learning in one day.”
With a repertoire of 200+ courses accredited by more than 20 global bodies, the course content and quality is something every participant would vouch for. “The training was good, the trainer was able to impart the training well and the course curriculum definitely met my expectations. Today I feel I am at par with any of my peers whether new or old and am confident of carrying out my duties well and would also survive any competition” said Rakesh KV who is a manager in TESCO.
Similar sentiments are expressed by Kevin Geddert – Business Improvement Specialist in Savanna Energy Services Corporation had to share, “All the participants feel that the course was a hit. We had Senior Ops guys participating, and the objective was not to get certified but understand the process. The trainer was a perfect fit for these folks. He explained statistics in a way that engaged highly non-mathematical folk, and by the end of the course we were having passionate analytical discussions.”
Today among competitors and in the general professional certifications and training world, Simplilearn is known as the ‘Leading Destination for Professional Certification and Training’. These claims are not futile when you look at the overall growth of the company in the last four years since its inception. A sneak peek into their client list which includes names like Dell, Accenture, KPMG, Mahindra, BOSCH, HCL and many more will tell you why big corporates have engaged with Simplilearn time and again.
