Victoria Bari Learning at Work week Group Training Manager

Training is more than a one-time event

BRG Training Manager, Victoria Bari, discusses the benefits and importance of consistent training for employees as we celebrate Learning at Work week.

The majority of companies have a standard introductory training process for new starters, with additional on-the-job instruction depending on the role. Yet there are clear advantages in going beyond this and encouraging structured development throughout an employee’s employment.

We asked Victoria Bari, Group Training Manager, her views of training at work:

“The reason consistent training is important as it helps employees develop and enhance their skills, providing them with the knowledge and tools they need to perform their jobs effectively leading to improved performance and productivity.” says Victoria Bari.

It’s also a commitment to employee growth and development which can boost morale and increase job satisfaction. Employees who receive regular training are more likely to feel valued and invested in their roles. This leads to higher levels of retention and loyalty to the company.”

Victoria continues, “Training courses benefit the employer as well, as they are getting well trained employees who are better equipped to deliver high-quality service to their customers/clients.

Training helps employees solve problems and issues promptly which increases client confidence. It can also help develop stronger communication skills enabling them to interact with the client in a professional manner.”
