A changing environment is a threat that requires adaptation, not only in the organization, but also in the people that operate within. How do we know that our employees understand the new procedure or how to operate the new equipment? How do we know that they have the right knowledge and adequate skills? In short, organizations need a method to ensure that changes are being proactively addressed and safely implemented.
Through continuous training your employees remain informed, resilient and competent. They will be able to operate in both routine settings and adverse scenarios where motor skills and effective resource management is required to deal with unanticipated complications. Just as any athlete, your employees also need to train to be at the top of their game.
By continuously training your employees the likelihood and impact of errors will be reduced, resulting in higher safety, higher efficiency and lower costs. It will also make your organization an attractive place of work for people that value continuous improvement and professional excellence.
