Staff training is crucial for organizational development and success. It‘s always fruitful to both employers and employees of any organization. Employees become more efficient and productive if they are properly trained well.
Training presents a prime opportunity to expand the knowledge base of involved staff. Training and development provides both the company as a whole and the individual employees with benefits that make the cost and time a worthwhile investment.
It’s rather obvious that in every work place some employees may have some weaknesses. A training program allows them to strengthen those skills that each employee needs to improve. A development program brings all employees to a higher level so they all have similar skills and knowledge. This helps reduce any weak links within the company who rely heavily on others to complete basic work tasks. Providing the necessary training creates an overall knowledgeable staff with employees who can take over for one another as needed, work on teams or work independently without constant help and supervision from others since the team becomes more aware of safety practices and proper procedures for basic tasks. Trainings may also build the employee’s confidence because s/he has a stronger understanding of the industry and the responsibilities of her job. This confidence may push her to perform even better and think of new ideas that help her excel.

At Carbon Zero it’s our culture to have staff trainings annually to equip our staff with vital skills in executing their roles and this year it was no different. We spent good time training our staff on our monitoring survey tools, Kitchen Performance Test and Water Boiling Test and clarifying several grey areas. We believe that moving forward with the renewed energy in the team our work within the community will have greater impact. The photos below tell it all!
