Cost Effective Training Strategies

by Andrew Thomson on October 24, 2018

Nearly every food service business I know are constantly seeking ways to minimise costs wherever they can. Everyone must do more with less. So, with shrinking training budgets, here is a simple and effective training tip you can employ at your workplace.

Introduce on-the-job training and coaching sessions! These training methods offer a range of business benefits to employers and employees that go beyond online training programs that are general in nature and don’t necessarily reflect workplace requirements.

Let’s make the distinction between coaching and training right up front. Essentially, training is about transferring knowledge while coaching is about enhancing knowledge (or skills) – development.

When employees in a team work together closely, they have the opportunity to share their reflections on a regular basis and they continuously learn from one another. It also helps the employee to succeed in their current job role and prepares them for success in their next position.

Business owners and managers will quickly identify improved employee performance.

Coaching and on-the-job training methods are cost-effective and empowering that has the potential to positively impact employee learning and development.

For you the business owner and manager, it’s faster. Better. Flexible. It delivers results.
