Why Workplace Education?

Is your organization focused on developing and implementing initiatives that will increase productivity and growth?

Successful conclusion of an Excel Manufacturing classIf you answered YES, then you and your corporation would benefit from investing in workplace education!

Why, you ask?

With the constant change in today’s fast-evolving business landscape and the move towards globalization, employees need to stay current with new techniques, technology and trends. Through ongoing education and training, organizations can advance their employees’ skills and knowledge, resulting in increased productivity and growth for the company.

What happens if you resist the opportunity to learn and adapt?

You will prevent your employees from gaining and applying hard-won knowledge to novel problems, and limit them from solving issues of unprecedented importance and complexity.

Is your company ready to embrace what it means to be a learning organization; to tightly and continuously blend strategy and learning into the business?

If yes, then let AWENS help you. As with our approach to workplace education, the opportunities are limitless.

AWENS’ approach to Workplace Education

AWENS understands that every business and organization is different; pre-packaged training programs don’t work for everyone.  The AWENS approach to learning in the workplace allows us to design training programs that are customized to deliver outcomes specific to the results that are needed.

AWENS’ approach is, with the long-term goal in mind, a lasting, beneficial relationship. We ensure this by spending time with you, up front, to understand the challenges your business faces and the uniqueness of your organization so we can help you get the best return on your investment.

Employees Are Worth the Investment

Training and upgrading employee skills makes good business sense. It’s an investment you can take to the bank, as a more satisfied employee is likely to stay longer and bring more productivity to the company, which results with ROI.

The cost of employee turnover:

  • 40 per cent of employees who receive poor job training leave their positions within the first year.
  • Employees state the lack of skills training and development as the principal reason for moving on.
  • It can cost as much as $2,500, depending on the position, to replace a frontline employee.
  • Today’s young workers want more than a paycheque. They want opportunities to grow.
  • The more engaged and involved they are in working for your success, the better your rewards.
  • Training is essential for knowledge transfer. Spread knowledge around through adult education — it’s like diversifying your investments.
  • Training gives seasonal workers a reason to return.
