We live in a time where technology is rapidly changing and knowledge is continuously growing, and for this reason, the importance of training your workforce cannot be overemphasized. By training your employees on the skills they need to improve, they will have more to contribute to the success of the company. While training may seem challenging, a successful training program can provide so many benefits to your organization and its employees.
After deciding that you’d like to invest in a training program, the next step is determining whether you will do the training in-house or outsource it. Your first thought may be that using resources you already have is the best course of action for your training. However, if you delve deeper into the idea of outsourcing your training, you will see that outsourcing is often the best option. Let’s take a look at a few of the less obvious benefits of outsourcing your training.
Research has shown that choosing to outsource your organization’s training programs can save up to 30% on training costs.[i] Hiring a full-time developer and trainer in-house for training can be extremely costly for any organization. Also, it’s important to note that by conducting training in-house, you will likely incur the costs of purchasing and upgrading technology necessary for the training. You will also have to spend time, money, and resources on recruiting talent in-house to deliver the training. The goal of any organization looking to train its employees is to deliver the highest quality training at the lowest cost. Outsourcing your training gives you this option.[ii]
While training may be a small part of your business, learning service providers spend all of their time and energy on training and development. Learning and development service providers are experts in the area and have a passion for providing successful training solutions. Great learning service providers have access to the talent and resources necessary to deliver exceptional training without missing a beat. By outsourcing your training, you have the ability to tap into all of the resources of your learning and development partner, ensuring quality Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) with industry experience and high-quality resources. All of these factors contribute to high-quality training content.[iii]
Organizations Can Stay Focused
It takes a lot to keep an organization operating successfully and efficiently. By outsourcing your training, your organization will be able to focus on other key areas of running the business and managing employees. Organizations will then have the opportunity to focus on growing their business in other areas and ensuring that the training will align with all other short and long-term goals.[iv]
