What is staff training and development?
Staff training and staff development are broad terms that cover several types of employee learning.
If we’re talking about employee training, this will generally refer to a training programme that provides employees with new skills and knowledge to improve their performance in their current role. It focuses on the now. Employee development, on the other hand, focuses on employee growth and performance long-term. It focuses on the future rather than an immediate job role.
Both are equally as important. Investing time and money into training and development will benefit your business in the short, medium and long term.

Why training and development is important for your business
In terms of long-lasting performance and results, training and development allow your workplace to thrive. And if there’s one thing we know about a thriving workplace, it’s that they’re often successful.
Because changes are constantly being made to the way we do things, staff training and development is also important to a company’s organisational culture. Something that works today might be outdated tomorrow. Continuous training and development help staff stay up to speed and adapt quickly if changes happen.
Employee training helps with motivation, too. If an employee learns a new skill and receives praise from their employer, they’ll most likely carry this motivation into their job role, which will improve performance.
It can also influence positive employee retention. By providing employees with career growth opportunities, you’re more likely to keep hold of employees, which means less time and money spent hiring. A company that invests in its people will not only pick up praise from its employees, but from others outside of an organisation, too. This is great for a business’s reputation, and for attracting top talent.
