“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe”
– Abraham Lincoln
Here; he is talking about Sharpening Skills
But still Corporate magnates fail to adopt this mantra; Investing in People and Training.
In the era of Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality and Blockchain Technology if knowledge of the employees doesn’t match current market trends then the organization will fail to win the corporate rat race.
According to research, 89% of the Business Giants around the world believe that recent graduates and postgraduates lack the necessary skills to perform their job.
Every company needs proficient and highly skilled professionals in their teams but when it comes to the IT Training and up gradation of their skill sets, cost-cutting strategies come into foresight.
Training employees is not an expense; Well it’s an investment that can bring a drastic change in the growth rate of the company. A Robust Training Programme is definitely an investment that enables employees and organization the much-required agility to successfully float in a competitive market.
Learning, improving, changing and experiencing the best corporate training should be mandatory. While it’s the company’s responsibility to train an employee with the recent trends in the market, the onus rests in the hands of the employee to attend such training sessions with a positive outlook and implement such skills during their job.
For any organization, people are one of the biggest assets and they should not be left to rust. As leaders and managers of organizations it’s their core responsibilities to go with trends and come up with innovative ways to bring changes and help employees to upgrade improve their skill set and bring success.
