There’s no disputing the fact that right now the economic climate is more difficult than it could be.
Training is often one of the first costs to be slashed in difficult economic times, isn’t it?
However, studies from Dr. Robert Cialdini have proven that those employers who invest in training during difficult economic times experience an immediate increase in profit during those difficult times.
The evidence is that “training is extremely cost effective."
He goes on to say,
Even more importantly - when those difficult times end, and they always do, those employers who have invested in their staff get a significant advantage over their rivals.
That doubles the advantage that they got during the difficult times.
And their staff are now in a position to take advantage of the economic upturn with their increased abilities and training capacities.
He also says that,
“One thing employers can do is to invest their staff in the training of persuasion because I can't think of a single core skill that would be more promotive of business success than the ability to move people in our direction - without the use of coercion or deception.”
And this applies across all of the range of business functions, it applies to sales and marketing, it applies to management and leadership, it applies to procurement, it applies to customer service and so on.
