A training program for employees seems to be a hard project to get started and to finish. But should there be really a "completed" date? Probably not, an ongoing training program for employees in your business should be on the top of your "to do" list. A recent article in SBAM Focus magazine quoted a business expert by the name of Nido Qubein that said: "The best time to train your managers and employees is when you feel your company is so busy it doesn't have the time to train them."
Probably most businesses, especially small businesses, would be surprised by this quote but it does make sense after you read the complete article by Tom Borg, "Why You Should Invest In Training Your Team" in the September/October 2013 issue of SBAM magazine. He gives the example of the Detroit Tigers Baseball Club and all of the trainers they have for each position and that they don't stop training to continue maximize their investment and potential. This should be the goal for every employee for every business, don't you think?
