As the credit-crunch bites harder, forward thinking companies are looking towards developing their greatest asset – their staff!!! During these difficult economic times, strategic business leaders are taking this opportunity to up-skill their workforce to help contribute towards that all important competitive advantage.
Developing and retaining motivated staff is crucial to a business’ long term performance. The bottom line is that when the recession eventually ends, companies must be in a position to meet the challenges ahead.
Facilitated by the Learning and Skills Council, up to £7000 of grant support towards training is being offered to organisations employing between 5 and 249 employees. The government’s underlying aim is to help unleash existing talent within British companies.
“As a Managing Director, I understand all too well the challenges posed by the current market conditions. I firmly believe that taking a proactive approach towards staff training, will help achieve this”, comments David Deakin.
To help companies take advantage of the funding on offer, Wilde have specifically developed a series of FEA, CFD, Reliability and Geotechnical training courses to comply with the required learning outcomes. “I am very impressed with the government funding on offer and we as a business are taking advantage of their support. I also want to provide the same opportunity to our customers by offering them courses that meet the requirements of the funding criteria”, Deakin continues.
